In 1987, “Cheers” “Home Is the Sailor” begins when Sam Malone (Ted Danson), back from his disastrous attempt to sail around the world, walks into his former bar and barely recognizes it — most of the regulars are gone. Only Carla (Rhea Perlman) and Woody (Woody Harrelson) are left, uncomfortably outfitted in the polyester uniforms required by Cheersʹ new owner. Sam wants work, but Carla warns him that the new manager “eats live sharks for breakfast.” Enter intoxicating Rebecca Howe, a confident and capable bar belle. Sam brags about his sexual prowess, and she rebuffs him, unable to decide if his lame come-ons are “disgusting or merely pathetic.” Sam is momentarily shaken and most definitely stirred. Hey, wait a second, hadnʹt we already sampled a brew-haha like this? Yeah, but we couldnʹt wait to be served another round.
