The bar's jukebox is going in for repairs, and for the week while it's away, Cheers gets a karaoke machine in it's place. After an initial reluctance by the gang as to it's usefulness, they take to the machine. In particular, Norm and Cliff are hooked on the song Lollipop - especially while sung with helium filled voices - while Frasier is hooked on every other song as he monopolizes the karaoke machine's time. Meanwhile, Robin will be getting out of jail in three days, and through the delivery of a white rose and a love letter, proposes to Rebecca and wants to get married on the day of his release. She's ecstatic - at least initially. Rebecca holes up in her apartment leading up to the wedding. She's living on booze and cigarettes. In a heart to heart with Sam and to herself, she finally admits that she doesn't think she loves Robin. She'll figure out what she needs to do once she sobers up. Written by Huggo

Lollipop, Lollipop
4 September 2019 | by HitchcocSee all my reviews

This is a serious episode. Robin is about to leave prison and he is to marry Rebecca the next day. Enter Lilith who gives her a shower. Cliff and Norm get hold of the Karaoke machine and sing the "Lollipop" song. Meanwhile, Rebecca gets totally drunk and also gets cold feet. The final scene is quite striking.
