Cheers 1.3: The Tortelli Tort

Airdate: 10/14/82

A thoroughly obnoxious Yankees fan insults Sam and is attacked by Carla. When the man threatens legal action unless she is fired, Sam faces the prospect of losing the bar, and arranges for Carla to get anger management counseling. When the man returns, he’s just as vitriolic as ever, and hurls more insults at Carla, but she keeps her cool and he drops all charges.

Ron Karabatsos is delightfully hateful as Ed, the Yankees fan, and its particularly amusing to see him screaming insults at a “rehabilitated” Carla point blank. Best scene: coach demonstrates how to get hit with a pitch (from offstage).
