Rebecca Howe - Kirstie Alley played Rebecca Howe, a neurotic business woman on the situation comedy CHEERS/NBC/1982-93.

Kirstie Alley as Rebecca Howe - CHEERS

While working as manager at Cheers, a bar in Boston, Rebecca was constantly propositioned by Sam Malone (Ted Danson), the head bartender.

One day, Rebecca told Sam there was one special song that made her melt when she heard it. Under its influence, Rebecca would be likely to do anything, even with Sam.

She was confident he'd never guess the right one. Sam, however, using his ingenuity, called Rebecca's mother and discovered her Achilles heel was the song "You've Lost That Loving Feeling" by the Righteous Brothers.

Armed with a tape recording of the song and hopeful of a swift conquest, Sam entered Rebecca's office and clicked on the song. Summoning all her strength, Rebecca fought the urge to kiss Sam.

Disappointed, Sam left the office defeated. With Sam gone, Rebecca let the music work its charms and she became very amorous. Accountant Norm Peterson (George Wendt) just happened to enter her office at fever's pitch and mistaking Norm for a returning Sam, she planted a passionate kiss on the unsuspecting bar patron.

Later in the series, Rebecca fell in love with millionaire business man Robin Colcord (Roger Rees). On two separate occasions he flew each of the Righteous Brother (Bill Medley & Bobby Hatfield) to sing their songs to her in person. Bobby Hattfield sang "Unchained Melody" at Rebecca's failed wedding ceremony to Robin.
