The first part of the title is inspired by the ABC drama Spenser: For Hire (1985). It ran from 1985-1988. Woody claimed that he was in a show that was shot for that series in Boston, and bragging on how he talked to the show's star, Robert Urich.

Cheers' location of 84 Beacon Street is a fifth of a mile from the former firehouse at 127 Mount Vernon Street used for Spenser's home from Spenser: For Hire: No Room at the Inn (1985) through Spenser: For Hire: Hell Hath No Fury (1986). Further, Robert B. Parker started including a map of Boston in Spenser: For Hire (1985) novels in 2007 which shows that Spenser lives in the apartment building at the corner of Arlington Street and Marlborough Street, which is just a tenth of a mile from Cheers.
