Coach seals his status as one of the most beloved secondary characters in T.V history with an episode that centers on him and his daughter. Coach has named all the beer and hard-liquor glasses at the bar.
Upon meeting his daughter’s fiancé, the latter declares baseball dead and decrees that “female full-contact karate” is his favorite sport.
The solid Italian family values are full on play here, and Coach fights to save his daughter from this louse. “I just had dinner with a pig” cries Coach after witnessing the fiance’s bad dinner habits. The fiancé is the daughter’s best salesman, who is looking for a promotion to come out of this marriage; ultimately Cheers is disillusioned with this stereotype of the American salesman.
The daughter confesses to her father that she is the stereotypical stranded working woman and looks to pursue the first kind of affection that comes her way. Coach defends her and this is his spotlight—and he sings bloody well. His daughter’s ultimate estimation of the relationship is healthy and hopeful:: “You don’t get Pennsylvania and you don’t get me; you only get more and more obnoxious”, she tells the salesman.
