With new video camera in hand, Cliff, with assistant Norm, is hired by a man named Peter to videotape his parent's fiftieth wedding anniversary celebration to be held at the bar. Half way through the proceedings, the battery in the camera dies and Cliff has no alternate power supply. Rather than tell Peter as Norm would like Cliff to do, Cliff decides to continue "filming" anyway. Beyond Peter's want for the tape after all is said and done, Cliff probably wishes he had filmed the proceedings. Meanwhile, Frasier has a new temporary secretary, twenty-one year old Shauna, who directly and unabashedly hits on Frasier. On Sam's urging, Frasier decides to take Shauna up on her offer of Sunday dinner at her house. Frasier is nervous about what seems like a sure thing with Shauna. The evening doesn't end up quite the way Frasier had imagined. However, Frasier, who is forced to stay until the end of the dinner, ultimately makes the most of his evening. Written by Huggo

Woody Boyd: [voice on answering machine message] Hi. This is Cheers. Well, it isn't actually Cheers. It's Woody Boyd. Cheers is actually the bar, and as such it couldn't be expected to talk.

Disappointment to the Nth Degree
11 September 2019 | by HitchcocSee all my reviews

First of all we have Cliff and his new camcorder. An anniversary party is going to take place at Cheers and Cliff talks a young man into being the photographer (even though he has never used the camera). What transpires is beyond belief--and hilarious. Frazier has a temp secretary who is sexy and gorgeous. She invites him to dinner at her place, but it turns out to be her family home. She is a fox who has a bike riding boyfriend. It's amazing to watch the tension. Great use of every possible thing that could go wrong.
