Episode Info

Sam (Ted Danson) breaks up with his new girl Maxine (Kim Lankford) when he finds out that she's married. Shortly afterward, Maxine's husband (Carmen Argenziano) storms into Cheers, gun in hand. In an attempt to disarm the outraged hubby, Sam shoots himself in an embarrassing location -- then spins an outrageously heroic tale of how he got his wound for the benefit of Diane (Shelley Long). In other news, Cliff (John Ratzenberger) considers buying a house from Norm (George Wendt).
