* ''{{Cheers}}'': Season 11's "The Little Match Girl" has Rebecca accidentally setting the bar on fire after vowing to quit smoking and tossing her (apparently not-completely-extinguished) last cigarette into a wastebasket in Sam's office. (While half the bar's interior was gutted, Sam must have been able to find exact replicas for everything, because by the next episode the place [[StatusQuoIsGod looks pretty much exactly as it had before]].)
