TV Quote of the Day (‘Cheers,’ on Canadian Men)

Margaret “Maggie” O'Keefe (played by Annie Golden): “I can't tell you how hard these months of separation have been. The men up in Canada, well they just don't compare to you.”

Cliff Clavin (played by John Ratzenberger) [beside himself with excitement]: “Oh, oh.”

Maggie: “They're just pale, pathetic imitations of you, Cliff.”

Carla LeBec (played by Rhea Perlman):  “Boy, that must be one butt-ugly country!” —Cheers, Season 8, Episode 4, “How to Marry a Mailman,” air date Oct. 19, 1989, teleplay by Brian Pollack and Mert Rich, directed by James Burrows

Well, they are not that bad, are they now, Carla? After all, there are already a significant number of Americans up there, including many draft evaders from the Vietnam War who decided never to return. And, if Donald Trump somehow becomes President,  more Americans will cross the border like you won’t believe…
