Cheers: The Last Picture Show

1118. The Last Picture Show

Aired February 25, 1993

Norm, Cliff, Woody and Frasier spend the night at a drive-in that's about to be torn down. Meanwhile, Sam lets the previous owner of Cheers, Gus O'Malley (Pat Hingle), run the bar for the evening.

Quote from Woody

Cliff: So, uh, what'd I miss? Why- Why is that girl, uh, running around screaming at everybody?
Norm: Well, she's trying to convince them that, uh, that Godzilla's merely confused and not really trying to hurt them.
Cliff: Isn't that the part usually played by Akiro Nakamoto?
Norm: Yeah, yeah. But, uh, she left halfway through the Godzilla series.
Woody: I don't understand. Why would an actress leave right in the middle of a successful series?


Quote from Woody

Frasier: So, this is your precious drive-in? [chuckles] Tin box squawking in our ears, endless parade of people walking in front of the car, a man in a rubber dragon suit stepping on miniature Japanese houses.
Norm: Yeah, you believe they're gonna tear this place down?
Woody: You guys, this couldn't really happen, could it? Hmm? I mean, don't think I'm stupid or anything, but I mean, you know, if there really was atomic testing offshore, and it woke up a dinosaur, and it got affected by the radiation, I mean, you know, not exactly like this, but maybe something pretty close?
Norm: Woody, Woody, Woody, when are you gonna grow up? [chuckles] Course it could happen.

Quote from Cliff

Cliff: Boy, oh, boy, you know, I'll never forget Ma used to take me down there all bundled up in my pyjamas and all, you know. Yeah, as a matter of fact, it was at the Twi-Lite that I first saw Herbie, the Love Bug.
Norm: Cliffie, Herbie, the Love Bug came out in, uh, 1969, and you were born in, uh...
Sam: Oh, please, man, don't. Don't do the math.

Quote from Sam

Sam: I bought this place from Gus.
Gus O'Malley: Yeah.
Woody: Sam, you've been had. You already own this bar.
Gus O'Malley: You must be Coach's boy.
Sam: It's a good guess, but, no, he, uh... Actually, you know, uh, Coach passed away several years ago.
Gus O'Malley: Oh, that's too bad.
Sam: Yeah.

Quote from Carla

Carla: Boy, I've been going to that place ever since I was a teenager. Of course a lot of the stuff I saw there was pretty hard core.
Sam: They didn't show those kind of movies there.
Carla: Who said they did?

Quote from Cliff

Sam: No, you can't go to a, a drive-in in a Beemer, man. You need a classic convertible.
Frasier: Okay, okay. I'm sold. So where do we get one?
Norm: Well, Cliff, your mom has a convertible, doesn't she?
Cliff: No!
Norm: What do you mean? I saw her just the other day. She was driving a convertible.
Cliff: Now, look, Norm, there's a lot of beautiful women driving around in convertibles, all right?
Woody: Mr. Clavin, you wouldn't be afraid to ask your mom to borrow the car, would you?
Cliff: I'm not gonna dignify that with a yes.

Quote from Frasier

Frasier: Oh, look, please, you know, you guys, I don't know, your attraction to the drive-in experience, it just eludes me. I mean, no wonder they're tearing all these places down.
Norm: Yeah, maybe you're right.
Woody: Yeah.
Norm: Maybe there is something to being out on Friday night, and you're hanging out with all your pals and watching the movie. I guess those days are gone.
Frasier: Gentlemen, may I suggest that you are not mourning the loss of this drive-in, but rather the loss of your youth.

Quote from Carla

TV Reporter: [on TV] We're going live now to the Route 93 overpass, where an unidentified woman has climbed to the outside rail and is threatening to jump. An emergency rescue team has had no luck so far in persuading the woman to climb down from her dangerous perch.
Frasier: Oh, boy. As one who has been there, it is imperative that they do nothing to agitate that woman.
Cliff: Boy, oh, boy. I mean, what what has to go wrong with your life to be driven to such desperate measures, huh?
TV Reporter: We have a tentative identification. The woman is Anna Cosetti of Boston.
Carla: Sam, can I take the afternoon off?
Sam: Why?
Carla: I gotta go look after the kids; That woman's my babysitter.

Quote from Norm

Norm: Well, I like drive-ins. All the great memories I have of that place. You know what I love most about that place? It has that, that great hot, fresh popcorn, and they use real butter there, not that imitation yellow stuff.
Cliff: Isn't that where you proposed to Vera there, Norm?
Norm: Yeah. Anyway, do you know any place that has real butter these days? I don't.

Quote from Norm

Woody: What about you, Mr. Peterson?
Norm: Well, I'm in, Wood, but, uh, I can't go to the snack bar for you guys. When I was a teenager, l, uh, ran up quite a tab at that place.
Frasier: Well, how big?
Norm: Well, they are closing down, aren't they?
