After Woody's Uncle Fergie has a mugging filled trip to Boston. Woody's father thinks that Boston is too dangerous a place for his son. And he wants him to return back home to Indiana. The gang at the bar thinks that introducing Woody's friends through the making of a home movie, would settle Woody's father's concerns. The first attempt has Diane as writer, director and cinematographer. Her "cast" rebels at the unnatural, for them dialog in Diane's script. They fire her, and she then separates herself from the project. The final product of the second attempt has Woody shown individually with each of his friends. Each, against their own natural settings: Sam in his office. Carla at a backyard BBQ, with her rambunctious kids. Cliff on his postal route. Norm at the Hungry Heifer, and Frasier at his psychiatry practice's office. After watching it. They each agrees that they all come off as boobs. Except for Diane. She sees this version as the start of something great. To her, all it needs...
Did You Know?
The gifts given to Woody as he leaves Cheers: Sam gives him the picture of him pitching as a reliever that hung at the bar (it was really another pitcher, but in the Cheers universe, it was Sam); Carla gives him one of her Elvis earrings (the other was swallowed by a date); Diane gives him her copy of Being and Nothingness by Jean-Paul Sartre that her mother gave her in grade school; Norm gives him a six pack of what appears to be Herman Joseph's Private Reserve (brewed by AC Golden, i.e. Coors, in Colorado); from Cliff a sheet of commemorative stamps depicting all the U.S. presidents (except nine); and from Frasier... well, he didn't know they were giving gifts.
