Carla's eyesight is getting bad and she secretly gets a pair of reading glasses. The guys at the bar start with all the standard "four eyes" jokes, until Carla vows to make their life miserable unless they stop. Cliff continues with the jokes, saying that it's worth whatever revenge Carla has in store. Or is it? Rebecca is still wanting to buy the bar back from Sam, who mocks her in her attempt. She has $25,000 cash that she received from her father to do so, but Sam adamantly refuses to sell. Rebecca has an ally in John Allen Hill, who will sell Rebecca the bar's back rooms (including the washrooms), which again he owns, for the $25,000. Sam realizes that Rebecca having this control could ruin him, so he tries to outbid her for the property. Hill implies that any little favors by either Sam or Rebecca could sway him in their direction. Sam and Rebecca both will do almost anything for the property, and Hill relishes in the attention he gets from both. Both Sam and Rebecca can do ... Written by Huggo

Rebecca's Dream
4 September 2019 | by HitchcocSee all my reviews

For whatever reason, Rebecca decides she wants to buy Cheers. She said this in a previous episode. When John comes down and begins his extortion practices with the pool room and the bathrooms, she offers to buy his interest. Sam has been a real ass but he gets into the bidding war. But he has very little money. They both kiss up to John and he loves it, including his expecting Rebecca to put out for him. An interesting solution presents itself.
