9.20 Cheers Has Chili - Cheers Episode Guide
Cliff fan idolizes Weather Channel anchor, Dorothy Boysick, who, annoying to most but endearing to Cliff, has a lisp. Cliff writes her a fan letter, and gets an unexpected reply: she thinks Cliff is child based on his handwriting. Meanwhile, co-owner of the bar, Rebecca, wants to open a tea-room in the pool room. Sam thinks it's a dumb idea, but allows Rebecca to open it on a trial basis, letting her keep it if she clears $500 on her first night. Sam thinks this goal impossible for Rebecca. Things are going very slowly on her trial day, and Rebecca doesn't help her cause when she chastises Frasier and Lilith, her first and only customers, when they solely order her loss leader, orange pekoe tea. However, things take an up turn for Rebecca when she hijacks and starts selling Woody's chili, which everyone in the bar loves. As it seems like Rebecca's converted chili room is a success, Sam feels like he needs to take drastic measures to sabotage Rebecca. Carla suggests killing her. Sam opts instead to call the fire marshal as the make-shift kitchen probably doesn't meet code. Sam's plan backfires when the marshal is a big chili fan. Sam concedes defeat. As a show of good faith in Rebecca's plan, Sam buys $20 worth of chili to put her over the $500 mark. However, things go awry for everyone when Sam, warming up the chili, blows up the pressure cooker, which breaks a hole in the back wall and windows. Rebecca thinks he did it on purpose to ruin her chili room. Sam says that he's so sorry, that he could cry. To prove that he really is sorry, Rebecca does want Sam to cry. Although he really is sorry, tears do not material, that is until Rebecca takes some extra measures: she breaks all the windows in Sam's Corvette.
