* AntennaAdjusting: TheTeaser of "Dance, Diane, Dance" from Season 5 finds the Cheers crowd watching a football game when the picture quality suddenly drops. Sam sends Woody over to the set to adjust the antenna, which involves balancing on the panelling while hanging onto the set; inevitably, he loses his footing, but as he hangs from the set, several feet off the floor, the picture clears up - almost. Cliff makes a minor colour adjustment by picking up one of Woody's legs to balance his foot on top of the panelling.
-->'''Woody:''' Wow, I sure hope this game doesn't go into overtime!

''Cheers'' can be neatly divided into the Diane years and the Rebecca years. Creator/ShelleyLong played Diane Chambers for five seasons, in which the Sam-Diane romance was the central theme. Their relationship was the most over-elaborate in television history, until [[Series/{{Friends}} Ross and Rachel]] came into the picture. After an acrimonious breakup at the end of Season 2, Sam had a relapse of his alcoholism while Diane voluntarily committed herself and fell in love with her psychiatrist, Dr. Frasier Crane (Creator/KelseyGrammer), who returned with her to Boston to help Sam kick the bottle. However, Diane's feelings for Sam had not gone away, and between Seasons 3 and 4, she left Frasier at the altar and, after trying to find herself through first hedonism, then asceticism, returned to her old job at Cheers. After Nicholas Colasanto died of a heart attack in 1985, [[TheCharacterDiedWithHim Coach was likewise written out as having died between seasons]], and in Season 4, he was replaced by his friendly but naive young penpal, Woody Boyd (Creator/WoodyHarrelson) of Hanover, Indiana. Meanwhile, just as Diane had moved on from her broken engagement to Frasier by re-kindling her romance with Sam, so Frasier found an unlikely new love in fellow psychiatrist Dr. Lilith Sternin (Creator/BebeNeuwirth) in Season 5; they married in Season 6 and became parents to a son, Frederick, in Season 8.

After Season 5, Long left for a less-than-brilliant career in movies, and to raise her child, so the five years of WillTheyOrWontThey culminated in Diane calling off her wedding to Sam to pursue her writing career at the urging of both her ex-fiancé and Sam himself. In Season 6, Creator/KirstieAlley joined the cast as Rebecca Howe, an executive at the corporation to which Sam sold Cheers after Diane left; although Sam was given his job back as a bartender, ownership of Cheers was traded between Sam and Rebecca several times. Though the sexual tension between Sam and Rebecca remained a plot element, the show became more of an ensemble for its last six seasons.

** The series' first guest star to appear as himself was Thomas "Tip" O'Neill, then-US Congressman for the district including Boston and Speaker of the House of Representatives, in Season 1's "No Contest"; he revealed that he had ducked into Cheers to get away from a woman who kept talking his ear off about her philosophies of everything. Said woman turns out to be Diane, who enters and tries to pick up where she left off until Sam ushers her into his office.

The bar was owned for much of the series' run by Sam Malone (Creator/TedDanson), a former relief pitcher for the Boston Red Sox whose career was cut short by alcoholism. His employees include short-statured and short-tempered waitress Carla Tortelli (Creator/RheaPerlman) and absent-minded bartender Ernie "Coach" Pantusso (Creator/NicholasColasanto), his former batting coach at the Red Sox. Bar regulars include underemployed accountant and armchair philosopher Norm Peterson (Creator/GeorgeWendt) and KnowNothingKnowItAll mailman Cliff Clavin (Creator/JohnRatzenberger). The lives of the Cheers staff are shaken up when book smart but street dumb Boston University graduate student Diane Chambers (Creator/ShelleyLong) is dumped by her fiancé and, at a loose end, accepts a job as a waitress.

''Cheers'' was a hugely popular {{sitcom}}, which aired on Creator/{{NBC}} for eleven seasons (198293), about the goings-on at a [[LocalHangout friendly neighborhood bar]] in UsefulNotes/{{Boston}}. When it began, it was notable for the fact that the entire show took place in the bar, never venturing outside, but this was dropped after a while. The Sam-Diane relationship was the most over-elaborate relationship in television history, until [[Series/{{Friends}} Ross and Rachel]] came into the picture.

* AlcoholInducedIdiocy:
** In "Bar Bet", Sam almost loses the bar when he falls off the wagon and makes a drunken bet to marry Jacqueline Bisset within one year. (The sleazy guy trying to take the bar from Sam is Michael Richards of ''Series/{{Seinfeld}}''.) Diane brings up the fact it's not enforceable, but Sam wants to keep it quiet because he's ashamed about getting drunk again.

Norm asks, "Excuse me, Diane: what exactly ''do'' you two have in common?" Diane is unable to answer.

Norm asks, "Yes, Frasier, but ''why'' didn't you tell her?" Frasier doesn't have an answer.[[note]] Although Norm follows this with a speech about marriages being built on trust, which even a casual viewer knows is not remotely true of his own marriage to Vera... and which he admits to Cliff is paraphrased from an episode of ''Series/{{Matlock}}''.[[/note]]

* SpontaneousMustache: In one episode the guys at the bar have a beard-growing contest with none of them shaving for a month, and whoever has the longest beard at the end of the month wins. Cliff (the only one at the time who regularly had facial hair - a moustache) is seen growing barely any facial hair while the other guys' beards come in thick and lush. On the last day of the contest Cliff enters the bar with an epic beard, saying it grew in overnight. After he wins the contest, he takes Diane aside and privately asks her to drive him to the nearest emergency room - he cheated by supergluing the hair to his face and now he needs a doctor.

* YouLookFamiliar: Paul Willson first appears in first-season episode "Someone Single, Someone Blue" as a character named Glen. In second-season episode "Little Sister Don't Cha" he plays a character named Tom. Then, in fourth-season episode "Fools and Their Money" he appears as Paul Krapence, the character he plays for 53 episodes, becoming a semi-regular in the show's later years.
** Interseries example with ''Series/{{Frasier}}''. John Mahoney and Peri Gilpin both guest-star on "Cheers" as different characters.
** Averted with Bernadette Birkett, who appears in one episode ("Fairy Tales Can Come True") as Cliff's date, and then four times without ever showing her face as Vera Petersen.
