8.13 Sammy and the Professor - Cheers Episode Guide
Alice Ann Volkman, Rebecca's old college professor and mentor, is coming by the bar to meet up with Rebecca. Rebecca is in awe of the woman and despite not being the best student and a bit of a suck up, Alice liked Rebecca for her sheer determination. Sam sees Alice's visit as an opportunity to pick the brain of a business professor as to ways to buy back the bar. Off to speak to Robin on the phone, Rebecca leaves Alice alone with Sam. As with Sam and any woman, they end up sleeping together. Rebecca is shocked that her mentor would slum with the likes of Sam. Although a one nighter in Sam's mind, Rebecca believes that for a woman with the class of Alice, she probably is expecting some sort of commitment with Sam. As it turns out, it too was just a casual fling for Alice. Rebecca is conflicted about her feelings. When Rebecca and Alice meet up, Alice tells Rebecca just to tell her what's really on her mind. After humming and hawing, Rebecca finally blurts that she thinks Alice is a slut. It's the first time Rebecca has ever said anything decisive without regard for the outcome. Despite the comment, Alice is happy that Rebecca is finally taking a stand. Meanwhile, Carla is being audited by the IRS and uses Norm's accounting services and advice. He tells her to make up fake receipts. Things get better for Carla when the auditor ends up being an old friend of Norm's. Things get worse again for both Carla and Norm when Norm makes off the cuff remarks about Carla's unreported tips - Norm now has the wrath of Carla to face.
