Reflecting upon their hit sitcom that concluded 30 years ago, the cast of "Cheers" – including Ted Danson (Sam Malone), George Wendt (Norm Peterson) and John Ratzenberger (Cliff Clavin) – discussed welcoming the late Kirstie Alley (Rebecca Howe) to the show in 1987, during the program's sixth season. "We were having dinner right before the show, and we said, ‘Oh jeez, we should have got her something, right,’ Wendt remembered at the ATX TV Festival in Austin, per People magazine. "[Ted Danson] says, 'I can't, I got a thing I got to do," adding that Rhea Perlman also declined to get the gift.
