George Wendt as Norm Peterson - CHEERSNorm Peterson - On the sitcom CHEERS/NBC/1982-93 resident beer drinker Norm Peterson (George Wendt) never let a day go by without visiting and spending multiple hours swilling down the golden brew. As he entered the bar everyone in Cheers greeted the beefy accountant with a hardy "Norrrrm!" As he saddled up to his favorite stool, he imparted some very funny one liners and observations on life, mostly focused on beer drinking. The following is a summary of some of Norm's better exchanges with the bartender on duty:

"How's a beer sound, Norm?" 
"I dunno. I usually finish them before they get a word in." 
"What's shaking, Norm?" 
"All four cheeks & a couple of chins."
"What would you say to a nice beer, Normie?"
"Going Down?"
"What's new, Normie?"
"Terrorists, Sam. They've taken over my stomach
 & they're demanding beer."
"What'll it be, Normie?" 
"Just the usual Coach. I'll have a froth of beer &
 a snorkel."
"What would you say to a beer, Normie?" 
"Daddy wuvs you."
"What'd you like, Normie?" 
 "A reason to live. Give me another beer."
"What'd you say, Norm?" 
"Any cheap, tawdry thing that will get me a beer."
"What would you say to a beer, Norm?" 
"Hiya, sailor. New in town?"
"Whaddya say, Norm?" 
"Well, I never met a beer I didn't drink."
"Hey, Mr. Peterson, Jack Frost nipping at your nose?"
"Yep, now let's get Joe Beer nipping at my liver, huh?"
"Would you like a beer Mr. Peterson?" 
"No, I'd like a dead cat in a glass."
"What's the story, Mr. Peterson?" 
"The Bobsey Twins go to the brewery.Let's cut
 to the happy ending." 
"What's going on, Mr. Peterson?" 
"A flashing sign in my gut that says,
 'Insert beer here.'" 
"How's it going, Mr. Peterson?" 
"Poor." "I'm sorry to hear that." 
"No, I mean pour."
"Pour you a beer, Mr. Peterson?"
"Alright, but stop me at one....make that one-thirty."
"How's it going, Mr. Peterson?"
"It's a dog eat dog world, Woody & I'm wearing Milk
 Bone underwear."
"What's your pleasure, Mr. Peterson?" 
"Boxer shorts and loose shoes. But I'll settle for a beer." 
"What's the story, Norm?"
"Boy meets beer. Boy drinks beer. Boy meets
 another beer." 
"Can I pour you a beer, Mr. Peterson?"
"A little early, isn't it, Woody?"
"For a beer?"
"No, for stupid questions."
