Episode Info

In Cheers' fourth-season opener, Frasier Crane (Kelsey Grammer) is still smarting from the humiliation of being deserted by his fiancée Diane Chambers (Shelley Long) in Europe. Returning to Cheers, Frasier begs Sam Malone (Ted Danson) not to try to contact Diane, who after several months of debauchery on the continent is now paying penance in a Boston convent. On another front, Sam hires a new bartender to replace the late and beloved Coach: country bumpkin Woody Boyd (Woody Harrelson, in his first series appearance), Coach's former pen pal.
