Episode Info

As season three of Cheers begins, Sam (Ted Danson) and Diane (Shelley Long) are still blaming each other for the breakup of their romance. Diane has herself committed to a mental institution, while Sam goes back to heavy drinking. At the behest of Coach (Nicholas Colasanto), Diane returns to the outside world in hopes of drying Sam out -- with the help of her new boyfriend, psychiatrist Frasier Crane (Kelsey Grammer, in his first series appearance). This is the first episode of a two-part story.
