* SpoiledSweet: Her character in a nutshell. "The Gift of the Woodi" shows that until she dated Woody, Kelly had ''no concept of being broke''; she had assumed Woody was rich as well, and that his mediocre birthday gifts were fake outs. When he explains it thoroughly, however, she immediately sympathizes and tells him that she could never accept a gift from him if it would break his bank.

* NameAmnesia: The very first episode has a Downplayed example of amnesia, since Ernie doesn't forget everything about himself, just his own name. He's been called "Coach" for so long, he didn't recognize it.
-->'''Coach:'''''(answering the phone)'' Cheers. Just a second. ''(to the room)'' Ernie Pantuso?\\
'''Sam:''' That's you, Coach.\\
'''Coach:'''''(into phone)'' Speaking.



* HiddenDepths: Norm believes he is a failure at life, and resigns himself to Cheers because he's too scared to face the real world. Also, he tends to break down when faced with the prospect of losing Vera.

* PhraseCatcher: Every time he enters the bar, all the patrons yell "NORM!" (All the staff except for Diane do too; Diane would always greet him with "Norman," a second after everybody else.) When the bar was remodeled at the premiere of the sixth season, no one recognized him, which he couldn't abide. Later that episode, when no one was ''supposed'' to know who he was, one patron piped up, "NORM!" Norm muttered, "Not ''now'', you idiot!"
