10: Diane Chambers Is an LGBT Alley
”The Boys in the Bar“ (January 27, 1983)
When Sam Malone makes a show of supporting his newly out former teammate, the regulars at Cheers worry that bar will suddenly go queer. It's another case of straight hysteria and straight histrionics, but luckily it's Diane Chambers to the rescue. The first season of Gayest Episode Ever closes out with a remarkable installment of one of Drew and Glen's favorite shows and a singing of the praises of Shelley Long, patron saint of suffering creatives everywhere.
