Aired January 25, 1990

When Robin Colcord invites Rebecca to join him at an expensive dinner, she is hopeful that tonight will be the night they finally get together.

Quote from Sam

Rebecca: Man, you are going to ruin everything.
Sam: What ruin? It's gonna save you from having to come up with another excuse not to go to bed with the guy.
Rebecca: What makes you think I'm not gonna go to bed with the guy?
Sam: Well, honey, you know, you see the sun come up every morning for 30, 40 years, after a while, you start to trust it.

Quote from Rebecca

Sam: Can I help you?
Bill Medley: Yeah, Rebecca Howe?
Rebecca: Me.
Bill Medley: Rebecca, this is from Robin Colcord. [sings] You never close your eyes anymore...
Rebecca: [drops to her knees] Oh, my gosh! It's Bill Medley from the Righteous Brothers. I mean, I knew Robin knew him. And I hoped that one day I would meet him. But I never knew he'd fly him all the way to Boston to sing this song to me. It's Bill Medley. Bill Medley!
Bill Medley: Excuse me. Excuse me. Would you knock it off? Somebody in the bar might want to hear this. [sings] You've lost that lovin' feelin'...

Quote from Rebecca

Rebecca: Sam?
Sam: Yeah.
Rebecca: What's the matter? Something wrong? Are you disappointed?
Sam: Why would I be disappointed?
Rebecca: Well, I guess I kind of thought you wanted me.
Sam: What would give you that idea?
Rebecca: I don't know. A guy hits on you every day for 3 or 4 years, you kind of start to trust it.

Quote from Norm

Sam: You really did it. I can't believe it. I never thought I'd see the day. I mean, first the Berlin Wall, and now this. What was it, the champagne?
Rebecca: No, it was a double bacon chili burger from Little Wally's.
Norm: Whoa. Now, hey, now, wait a second. He took you to Little Wally's Pup 'n' Burger?
Rebecca: You know the place?
Norm: Know it? I plan to be buried there. Seriously. I've bought myself a plot right under the big plastic Little Wally.

Quote from Frasier

Frasier: Hello, everyone.
Woody: So, how's the little Dr. Crane?
Frasier: Getting cuter every moment. I have baby pictures. Who wants to see them first? [silence] Well, listen, fellas, there's no need to fight over these. I mean, I got double prints. All right, now... Who do you think he looks most like... Me or Lilith?
Sam: Kind of hard to tell there.
Frasier: Oh, well, here, let me make it easier for you. I just happen to have newborn photos of myself and his mother.
Cliff: Gee, will you look at this. 3 days old and Lilith already had her hair back in a bun.
Sam: I think the kid looks like his mom, Fras.
Carla: Yeah, I do, too. And I mean that. It's not just a shot.
Frasier: I suppose that's only fair. I mean, after all, she did carry Frederick for nine months. What did I do?
Norm: In my household, the hard part.

Quote from Frasier

Norm: I'd say, uh, got to be Little Deuce Coupe.
Cliff: You're crazy.
Norm: What?
Cliff: 409.
Pete: Little Cobra, Little Cobra.
Frasier: Now what mindless subject are you beating to a slow, lingering death? What's the best car?
Norm: No, no. What's the best car song?
Frasier: GTO. You hear them lyrics, boy, you're burning rubber!

Quote from Cliff

Rebecca: I am the luckiest woman in the world to be dating such an influential, rich man.
Cliff: You still don't get it, do you, Rebecca? The measure of a man's wealth is what he carries with him. What he has in his soul.
Rebecca: So you wouldn't switch places with Robin Colcord?
Cliff: Are you kidding? I'd switch places with his socks.

Quote from Woody

Woody: It's ringing, Sam.
Sam: I don't need it this time. Thanks, Woody.
Woody: [answers phone] Oh, hello. Michele? Yeah, I just wanted to tell you that Sam still can't make it. Me? Oh, I'm about 6 feet, blond hair, early 20s. A little party? Sure. I love birthday cake. Is it OK if I bring my girlfriend? Hello?

Quote from Sam

Laura: It's a quarter to 9:00. That's it. I am out of here.
Sam: Come on, honey, Colcord will be here. Maybe he's confused. You know, maybe he's still on Swedish time. What's that? You say you're a member of the Nazi party? Well, forget it, babe. I draw the line. Whew. Narrow escape, guys. Did you see that?
Rebecca: Where is he? Where in the hell is he?
Sam: You think you got a beef. I just had to dump my date for political reasons.

Quote from Robin Colcord

Robin: Chop chop, everyone. Let's go.
Rebecca: Excuse me? Some of us were ready to chop chop one and a half hours ago.
Robin: Rebecca, you look lovely.
Rebecca: I looked lovelier one and a half hours ago.
Robin: Well, darling, we all age, you know.

Quote from Woody

Cliff: Hey, hey! Hey, Woody, check the pool. Anybody have this month?
Woody: All right, let's see. Closest we got here is August 1992. Lilith Sternin Crane.
Frasier: I'll take that. Not a word to Lilith.
Rebecca: Oh, you wacky barflies.
Carla: So, was it good?
Rebecca: Oh, very good.
Woody: "Very good"... Norm, Ken, David, and Cliff's mom.
Rebecca: Just so you guys know, I really don't care if everybody knows.
Woody: Well, is it OK if we post the results in the window?
Rebecca: Do you really think passersby on the street would be interested?
Woody: Well, enough of them asked.

Quote from Norm

Rebecca: I'm just so happy. You know, all I want to do is celebrate. Come on, you guys, you're my pals. Come on, let's go have fun.
Norm: Oh, I don't know. We're really kind of settled in here for the evening.
Rebecca: Little Wally's Pup 'n' Burger.
Norm: I'm there.
Cliff: Come on, Sammy. It'll be a lot more fun than that Red Sox dinner would have been. And it won't cost $1,000 a plate.
Norm: Yeah, Little Wally's doesn't have plates. They just serve on those wax paper things. You can scratch your initials in with your fingernails and if Little Wally's in a good mood, you can scratch your initials in him.

Quote from Sam

Sam: All right. Yeah. Maybe I am disappointed. I thought we'd be cool together. We'd go out for a while, do stuff. Ah, but what the hell, you know? We'd probably end up not liking each other's stuff. You'd have to do my stuff for a while and I'd do your stuff, and our stuff would get all mixed up. [chuckles] It saves us a lot of aggravation.
Rebecca: Yeah.
Sam: I'm very happy for you.
Rebecca: Thanks.
Sam: Let's go eat.
Rebecca: OK.
Sam: Do me one favor, though, will you?
Rebecca: Sure. What is it?
Sam: Go to bed with me.
Rebecca: Oh, Sam, you never stop.
Sam: Oh, I'm sorry. It's in my genes.
Rebecca: And that's where it's going to stay.

Quote from Cliff

Norm: Well, Rebecca knows how to throw a party. This has to be my favorite restaurant in the whole city.
Cliff: Come on, I thought you said the Hungry Heifer was your favorite.
Norm: Sure, you know, you got folks from out of town or something, you want to impress them, you want to sit down, maybe, yeah. But you just want to power down animal fat, then Wally's rules.
Cliff: Well, all I know is I'm stuffed, and I couldn't eat another bite.
Norm: I could use a little something to settle the old stomach.
Cliff: What are you talking about there, Norm?
Norm: Go back to Cheers. Care for that idea?
Cliff: Sure. Sure.
Frasier: Say, you know, how come I only got to eat one burger?
Cliff: 'Cause you're the designated driver.

Quote from Sam

Sam: Uh-oh. Blonde at 2:00, blonde at 4:00, blonde at 6:00.
Woody: What are you talking about, Sam? She hasn't even moved.
Sam: I know. I'm just trying to fit her into my schedule. Here. Hold that, will you? [on the phone] Hello. Michele?
Hi. It's Sam Malone. Here. Listen, sweetheart, I'm not gonna be able to make it tonight. Aw, I'm sorry. But, hey, sweetheart, you'll have another birthday next year. [to the woman] Hi there. Can I take your order?
Laura: I'll have a glass of Chablis.
Sam: Terrific. What can I get you for dinner?
Laura: You serve food here?
Sam: No.
Laura: [laughs] Oh, Lord. I'm really not interested.
Sam: Can I ask why?
Laura: You really want to know?
Sam: One Chablis coming up.
Woody: I already dialed, Sam.
Sam: Thank you, Woody. Hey, Michele, good news.

Quote from Carla

Rebecca: Robin is back in town, and tonight he is mine. So would you like to know where we are going and you are not?
Norm: My house?
Rebecca: Carl Yastrzemski's testimonial dinner. All the old Red Sox all-stars are gonna be there.
Sam: Oh, boy, I would've loved to have gone to that. Well, hell, maybe I'll just show up and surprise the guys. I mean, why shouldn't l?
Rebecca: It's $1,000 a plate.
Sam: Give my best to Yaz.
Rebecca: Ah, who cares about Yaz? This could be the night. I am so excited to be alone with Robin after that dinner.
Carla: Yeah? For 1,000 bucks a plate, you should give it to him during dinner.

Quote from Woody

Woody: [answers phone] Cheers. Oh, hi, Mr. Colcord. Listen, can I make a suggestion? I know you're going to this $1,000-a-plate dinner tonight and I'm sure you're gonna have a great time, but, you know, they have these entertainment books now where you buy one dinner and get the next free...

Quote from Sam

Rebecca: What was all that?
Sam: Well, it seems that Robin would like to chat with Carl Yastrzemski, but since he knows jack about baseball, he decided to invite old Mayday along to come to dinner with you so I can translate.
Rebecca: What? Sam, and you accepted? You know this is the first time I've been alone with Robin in a month.
Sam: I'm not gonna be in your way, honey. I'm gonna be to busy hobnobbing with my buddies, rubbing their noses in the fact that I'm going around with Robin Colcord. Really stick it to them, you know, make them feel two feet high. I miss those guys.

Quote from Carla

Rebecca: Damn that Robin Colcord, changing plans like that at the last minute. You know, just because that guy's got a couple of buck in his pocket, well he thinks he can just shuttle people around like cattle.
Carla: Moo-ve along, bossy. It's milking time.

Quote from Sam

Sam: Boy, you know, too bad you and I didn't hit it off. I just got invited to Carl Yastrzemski's dinner with Robin Colcord.
Laura: Really?
Sam: Oh, yeah. Yeah. Yeah, we'll be going over in Robin Colcord's stretch limo. Then, uh, Robin Colcord will be treating us to a $1,000 plate, which we will be eating sitting next to Robin Colcord. And then, you know, maybe we'll go out for ice cream later with Sam Malone.
Laura: Who's that?
Sam: A friend of Robin Colcord's. Come on. What do you say?
