8.24 Mr. Otis Regrets - Cheers Episode Guide

Mr. Otis Regrets

Woody is looking for a roommate since his rent is being raised. He finds Terry Gardner - a she, not a he - who, despite her gender, he thinks is perfect, especially since she's from Indiana. But as quickly as Terry moves in, she moves out as she reconciles with her jealous husband, Cutter, who just happens to be a hot tempered old acquaintance of Woody's from back home. Knowing Cutter's size and temperament, Woody offers up poor Cliff as the man Terry spent the evening with on her night away from home. Meanwhile, Lilith is taking singing lessons as she wants to be able to serenade Frederick. Frasier scoffs at her abilities. But she comes into the bar singing a heart wrenching rendition of Sonny Boy, which send all who listens the need to call home to Mom to tell her he/she loves her. Elsewhere, Rebecca reads in the society column that Robin's other girlfriend, Jeanne-Marie, the chargé d'affaires with the French consulate, is in town to attend a gala Franco-American ball. Rebecca, jealous, asks Sam to attend to the ball to spy on Jeanne-Marie and report back to her. He does so. In fact he ends up sleeping with Jeanne-Marie, in what he considers the best sex he's ever had - or so he tells Rebecca. In actuality, the hotel ballroom where the ball was to be held got flooded and the ball canceled, so he never even met Jeanne-Marie. Sam only told that story as he knew that Rebecca would want to know how to compete sexually. Of course the only way would be for Rebecca also to sleep with Sam. His plan works. In fact, Rebecca wants to recreate everything about the liaison with Jeanne-Marie, which Sam mentions included doing it in the hotel elevator, Sam tied up with Jeanne-Marie's scarf, and of course, various stages of undress of both parties. So, Sam and Rebecca go into the elevator, she ties him up and starts ripping off his clothes. After that, she leaves and leaves him tied up - she knew about the flooded ballroom and thus Sam's made up story.
