Cheers: Feeble Attraction

811. Feeble Attraction

Aired December 7, 1989

After Norm fires his secretary, Doris (Cynthia Stevenson), she becomes infatuated with him and won't stop following him around. Meanwhile, Robin surprises Rebecca with an antique desk, and Woody wins a radio call-in.

Quote from Cliff

Woody: Mr. Clavin, how can you be delivering mail on the coldest day in Boston's history except for one?
Cliff: Well, a very good question there, young Woodman. It seems that like any member of your camel family, we Clavins have an extra... No, wait. That's how I can go without water for a week.

Quote from Norm

Norm: [enters] Afternoon, everybody.
All: Norm!
Woody: Hey, Mr. Peterson, Jack Frost nipping at your nose?
Norm: Yeah. Now let's get Joe Beer nipping at my liver, huh?

Quote from Norm

Norm: Sammy, I'm trying to. I can't shake the girl. I mean, I come in Cheers, she's here. I go upstairs to plug the parking meter, she's there. I come back in Cheers, she's here. Sammy, it's like somehow she's figured out my whole routine.
Doris: [enters] Oh, Mr. Peterson. I knew I'd find you here when you weren't at the parking meter. Could I warm up your seat for you?
Norm: It's OK, Doris. It's never cold.

Quote from Norm

Norm: Doris, we have to get something straight here, OK?
Doris: Yes, Mr. Peterson?
Norm: I am not interested in you, OK? I'm not interested in any woman except for my wife, and I'm not even interested in her.
Doris: She's a very lucky woman.

Quote from Norm

Sam: Want another one, Norm?
Norm: No, thanks, Sammy. I'm going home. I'm not feeling too great, you know? I just can't shake the sight of Doris staring at me and undressing me with her eyes.
Carla: Now I want to go home.
Norm: Anyway, see you in the morning, I guess.
Sam: Yeah, I may be a little late.
Norm: That's OK. I had a key made.

Quote from Cliff

Cliff: You know, a postal carrier is pretty much the Indiana Jones of your civil servants. Just as Indy faces off a pit of rattlesnakes or a sewer full of rats, I have to, daily, mind you, trade wits with the Flannigans' dog.
Doris: Oh, Cliff, when you get out of the service, could we go out together?
Cliff: Well, uh, you know, Doris, there's actually no rule against mailmen dating women. It just sort of turns out that way.

Quote from Norm

Norm: Well, I think I handled that one rather well, don't you, Wood? Could I have a celebratory beer, please?
Frasier: Handled it, my foot!
Norm: What?
Frasier: You mean to tell me you're going to pay that girl week after week just to stop following you and watching your every move, interrupting your beer drinking?
Norm: Come on, Fras, this is nothing. I bought Vera a house.

Quote from Cliff

Cliff: All right, you want to talk American heroes? I'll give you numero uno, the only guy who should be on the list, Mr. J. Edgar Hoover.
Norm: What?
Frasier: J. Edgar Hoover was a paranoid, right-wing, megalomaniac who used his position to intimidate presidents and congressmen and smear anybody who disagreed with him.
Cliff: Eh, can't poke any holes in that guy, can you?

Quote from Norm

Norm: Sammy, excuse me, do you know how to spell courteous?
Sam: Yeah, Norm. Just as it sounds. Then check it with Frasier.
Norm: I've got to write this letter of recommendation for Doris. Remember my secretary Doris?
Sam: Oh, yeah. What, did she quit?
Norm: No, I have to let her go. Business hasn't been going too good since I decided to stop working.

Quote from Frasier

Rebecca: Oh, it's gorgeous. Isn't it gorgeous, everyone?
Frasier: You know, I could have had a desk like this once. A beautiful antique, real prestige piece. Something to mirror and dignify my status. But I decided that that sort of display was too ostentatious, so I put the money into pinstriping my Beamer. Looks pretty sporty, too.
