7.12 Please Mr. Postman - Cheers Episode Guide
Cliff is saddled with the task of training a new postal employee, and he's not too happy about a rookie getting in his way. However he changes his tune when he meets her: Margaret 'Maggie' O'Keefe. Maggie is as passionate about the post office as Cliff and she vows, with his mentoring, to be the second best postal employee behind him. Maggie's post office passion transfers itself to Cliff, Cliff as surprised and as nervous as he's ever been to this revelation as it will be his first time with a woman. At their scheduled rendezvous at an out of the way motel, things are going well until a policeman comes by asking the motel guests about the stolen postal truck, obviously the one Maggie used to drive to the motel. She talks Cliff into lying for her. Although the story they tell the postal authorities works, Maggie no longer feels the same for Cliff since they sullied the good name of the postal service. They decide to tell the truth, resulting in her being fired and Cliff demoted for six weeks, delivering mail in "dreaded zone 19", the zone with the rottweilers. At least he can be with Maggie once again. But being the devoted postal employee that she is, Maggie has other things in mind. She's off to Canada to work for the Canadian postal service and she wants Cliff to go with her. But not even the love of a good woman is enough for Cliff to abandon the U.S. and its postal service. Meanwhile, in Sam's never ending quest to bed Rebecca, Frasier suggests that he find the one sensory stimulus that turns Rebecca's crank. She admits to Sam that she does have one, it being a song from her teen-aged years. Sam discovers that it's The Righteous Brothers' "You've Lost That Lovin' Feeling". Rebecca manages to disguise the fact that that is the song in front of Sam, but pours out her sexual emotions on the first man she sees after, that being Norm.
