Because of Woody's civic election win, Sam needs another bartender, a job he gives to Carla. To celebrate, Carla whips up a batch of one of her powerhouse drinks for the guys. The day after, everyone has a hangover. What's worse, Carla, who imbibed and got drunk herself, has a sneaking suspicion that she took someone home and slept with him, that person she believes being one of the Cheers regulars. She confides in Sam alone, and after he tells her it wasn't him, she panics and they both ponder who it could have been, with her worse nightmare having it be Cliff. When her bed-mate ultimately reveals himself, Carla and Sam have to decide how best to handle the information. Two other revelations come to light in the aftermath of the drunken spree. And Sam makes an admission of his own to Carla to make her feel better about her own further revelation. Written by Huggo

Each Has His/Her Day
19 September 2019 | by HitchcocSee all my reviews

Now that Woody is a city councilman, Sam needs a new bartender. The job is handed over to Carla. To show her stuff, she mixes up a powerhouse drink. Each of the principles gets some and each comes in with a horrible hangover. They also have memory gaps from the night before. There are numerous scenes where they reconcile their actions. The funniest is when Norm and Cliff remember a trip to a tattoo parlor. Great stuff.
