The Bartender's Tale - S3-E23

Revealing mistake: When Frasier comes into the chalet after skiing he doesn't show any of the visible effects after a hard day on the slopes. Meaning, his face isn't even flushed from the cold, his hair is perfectly combed after wearing a hat and there is not even a drop of snow on his boots.

strikeand

Chosen answer: The character Frasier Crane, Diane's esoteric psychiatrist/lover, first appeared on "Cheers" during the first episode of season 3 ("Rebound: Part 1"). Naive and lovable Woody Boyd joined the cast one season later as the replacement bartender for the deceased Coach ("Birth, Death, Love and Rice," season 4, episode 1). Rebecca Howe, the beautiful but tough manager after Sam sells the bar to a large corporation, began her tenure at "Cheers" during the first episode of season 6: "Home is the Sailor".
