Storyline

Cliff has been chosen to re-enact the first postal run cum pony express in Boston. The problem is is that Cliff is scared of horses. Other fears take over Cliff. Best friend Norm comes to the rescue, but will Cliff appreciate the effort? Back at the bar, Sam is in his continual battle with upstairs neighbor, John Allen Hill. At the end of his rope, Sam decides to pull out the big guns to get back at Hill by using the meanest, evilest thing at his disposal: Carla. Sam leaves it to Carla's discretion about what to do, but Carla only promises to make Hill cry. Later, Carla comes back in a panic. She confides to Lilith and Rebecca that she did the worst thing she possibly could have done: she slept with Hill. Lilith explains to a confused Carla that she and Hill have the classic compulsion/repulsion relationship. Carla is not only confused but she feels that she betrayed Sam. Carla has to come to some resolution with both Sam and Hill about the issue. Written by Huggo

Goofs

Woody and Sam both emerge from the back room with bags of garbage after discovering John Hill has locked the Dumpster. Yet there is no communication between the back room and the alley, so the men wouldn't have gone that way to dump garbage.

In 9.5 "Ma Always Liked Me Best," the gang tries to create a back door to get around construction out front, but they are stymied by police who point out they need a permit. The fact they never finished the door is confirmed in 10.2 "Baby Balk," when Carla complains about smokers using the back room because there is no ventilation back there, including the windows being painted shut.

Too Stupid to Write About
8 September 2019 | by HitchcocSee all my reviews

Even comedy needs motivation. What happened in this episode defies any sort of logic. Even Cliff on the horse is asinine. Don't bother.
