6.13 Woody for Hire, and Norman of the Apes - Cheers Episode Guide
While discussing exciting things in their lives, Woody tells the gang that he was just an extra on the TV show "Spenser: For Hire" (1985), and that he had rubbed elbows with its star, 'Robert Urich' . Everyone is excited until they see the episode on TV, where Woody claims that the ubiquitous "white shirt" on the screen is him. After that, everyone in the bar is skeptical of his story. Unfortunately for everyone, they miss 'Robert Urich' who stops by the bar and who chums off with Woody. Meanwhile, Norm is painting Cliff's apartment. Norm is expecting to get paid, Cliff expecting it to be a freebie, especially in light of the fact that Norm painted Ma Clavin's house for free - when Norm was not a professional painter - and that Cliff regards painting as menial work that even a trained monkey could do. Cliff demonstrates this by bringing in a monkey to act as a painter. Norm is not amused and he and Cliff are no longer on speaking terms. However being best friends, they mend their rift. But one good act deserves another, so Norm gets a monkey to come into the bar dressed as a postman to deliver a package. Elsewhere in the bar, Rebecca has booked the pool room to a woman's book club every Sunday night. The women are not as innocent and bookish as they appear as first they drink the bar out of its stash of alcohol, and second whoop it up with unwitting Sam and Frasier - Woody gets away from their pawing hands. But Frasier gets the upper hand in the situation when he gets more money stuffed down his pants from the ladies than Sam does.
