Babe Box - On episode No. 248 "The Magnificent
Six" on the situation comedy CHEERS/NBC/1982-93, a French gigolo named Henri
(Anthony Cistaro) challenged bartender and lady's man Sam Malone (Ted Danson) to
a contest to see who could get the most phone numbers from women at Cheers
At first, Sam declined but after further taunts, he decided to participate.
Turning to his head waitress, Carla Tortelli (Rhea Perlman) Sam said, "Get me
'The Babe Box'." Shocked, Sam's customers cried "Not the Babe Box!" Taking
the box to his office, Sam opened his secret weapon for attracting women.
The contents included the first edition of his "little black book," a Members
Only jacket, a picture of Elvis and a special mixture of cologne (part Old
Spice, part Hi Karate and something that takes spots out). As he prepared, Sam
sighed "Every time I think I'm out, they pull me back in."
At the end of the competition, Sam walked out of the bar with three women who
coyly confided, "We do everything together...everything."
