Thanksgiving Orphans


Episode Info

Thanksgiving is approaching, but only Diane (Shelley Long) has made plans to celebrate the holiday (and elaborate plans they are indeed, replete with Pilgrim costumes). So that no one will be left out of the festivities, Carla impulsively invites the Cheers gang to dinner at her place. As they impatiently wait for Norm's turkey to finish cooking, Carla can take heart in the fact that, no matter how disastrous the dinner may turn out, at least Diane won't be showing up -- or will she? Vera, the much talked about, but never seen, wife of Norm Peterson (George Wendt), makes her first on-camera appearance -- sort of.
