Can you match Cheers characters to the first things they ever said on the show?

See Cheers as part of A Very Merry MeTV on November 24!

You wanna go where everybody knows your name. For most of us, that's Thanksgiving dinner with the family. Of course, as any lover of 1980s sitcom themes knows, it is also the familiar refrain from Cheers. That's why we're delivering a pair of Cheers holiday episodes on Sunday, November 24, as part of A Very Merry MeTV.

Like most classic sitcoms, Cheers featured a sprawling cast of charming characters, from the bar employees and stool occupiers to their lovers and exes. That Boston tavern made them all a family.

Let's see how well you know their names — and personalities. Try to match these first lines to the correct Cheers character!

  1. His first lines were, "How about an I.D.? Ah, a military I.D.! First Sergeant Walter Keller."
  2. Her first lines were, "Sumner, this is crazy. Sumner, now we have a plane to catch."
  3. Who said, "Okay, I'm late! My kid was throwing up all over the place! You don't buy that excuse, I'm quitting"?
  4. His awestruck first lines were: "This is amazing! Hundreds of bottles. Red and white wine glasses. High-grade naugahyde stool covers!"
  5. His first lines were: "Call that a football team? What's wrong? The Patriots did it again. This is going to be the worst draft yet."
  6. This character dryly said, "By the way, I noticed your drinking went beyond sociability. There's no such thing as a meaningless joke."
  7. He said, "No, no, not even close. Body Heat! Sweat city."
  8. This character said, "Hello, Sam. I'm REDACTED. Sorry I startled you. Diane told me that you're basically a good, open-minded person."
  9. Who said, "Not enough. Hey, Coach, what do you think of the Patriot's draft?"
  10. This character said, "Sorry to interrupt. I'm looking for Rebecca Howe. Yes, as a matter of fact, I am. Have I caught you at a bad time?"
  11. This romantic interest said, "Hi there. Could I have a glass of club soda, no ice, two slices of lime and a red straw please?"

Can you match Cheers characters to the first things they ever said on the show?

You got 9 out of 11 - Look at you! And they say Cliff is the know-it-all. Not good. I should have done better. Fat-fingered #5. I knew it was Coach but accidentally clicked on Cliff. Missed #10. I didn't think Robin would be polite enough to say "Sorry to interrupt".

8/11. Watched the very first episode in real time. And most of the first season or two.

6/11. Not bad considering I never watched an episode. Although I seem to remember reading that this was a fairly popular show in its day.

10/11! Missed 4! Fun Fact: Ted Danson is in Body Heat! He's only got one line, but he's there!
I forgot he was in Body Heat. He danced for some reason.

So you've been doing a lot with "Cheers" lately, does that mean it will be joining the MeTV line-up in the near future?

Well, it's been on in the past and it is included in this year's holiday lineup, so who knows? Until then, you can see it on Netflix or CBS All Access, among other places!
