Cheers' Norm: Insatiable and quotable

George Wendt as Norm Peterson on CheersOne of the best things about Norm's character on Cheers is that he made no pretentions about who he was. Norm Peterson liked drinking beer, was a big man who needed a lot of beer, liked to be in a bar with beer, liked to eat along with his beer... you see where I'm going with this?

Norm's insatiable love of beer came with a treasure trove of beer quotes, usually quips back to the bartender -- be it Sam, Coach, or Woody -- when asked what he'd like.

A few classics:
  • "Women. Can't live with 'em, pass the beer nuts."
  • Sam: Beer, Norm?
    Norm: Have I gotten that predictable? Good.
  • Coach: What would you say to a nice beer, Normie?
    Norm: Going down?
  • "What's the story, Norm?"
    "Boy meets beer. Boy drinks beer. Boy meets another beer."
Yeah, that's not enough for me, either. It's a good thing Norm's famous quotes, the best Norm quotes, are all over the internet.

My favorite:

N: My ideal weight, if I were eleven feet tall

I miss that show.
