8.17 Woody or Won't He - Cheers Episode Guide

Woody or Won't He

Woody is meeting Kelly's mother, Roxanne Gaines, for the first time. Roxanne and Kelly's father, Walter, have been divorced for years, hence the reason why Woody has yet to meet her. He figures she's his last opportunity for someone in Kelly's family actually to like him. She does like him, a little too much as displayed by the her tongue down his throat and the game of footsie she plays with him under the dinner table. At a dinner part at the Gaines household, Woody blurts out in front of all the dinner guests that he wants her to stop hitting on him. He thinks that act will ruin his relationship with Kelly. Contrary, Kelly believes that Woody has misinterpreted Roxanne's actions. Roxanne says as much to Kelly. But in a note Roxanne has written to Woddy, her true "tongue down his throat" and "footsie" intentions are made even more crystal clear. Meanwhile, one of Lily's restaurants in Texas is closing down and is moving it's unliquidatable inventory to its other properties. Cheers is the lucky recipient of a mechanical bull. Carla goads Cliff into riding the bull. He straps himself in and has the guys put it on the highest setting. The bull is bucking so hard, Cliff can't get off and no one can get close enough to shut it off. After getting expert advice, they find they can't shut off the power as it will cause the bull to stop immediately, which could injure Cliff. Finally the fire department lays down mattress pads against the wall so that when the bull stops, Cliff will be thrown safely against the pads. However Carla reads that he only has another five hours on the bull to break the world record. Cliff, rather than be world record holder, wants off. The rest of the bar want him to break the record and leave him strapped on.
