Cliff!Whether it was when the show originally aired or in syndication in the years since, odds are that you've seen an episode or two of the long-running sitcom Cheers. If that's the case, then you're most likely familiar with the face pictured here. It's the man, the legend: postal carrier Cliff Clavin, fountain of knowledge and hero to trivia mavens everywhere. Just check out the shape and size of that cranium. Impressive, eh?

What you may not know is that many years ago, Cheers' four main employees - Sam, Diane, Carla and Coach - each drew names from a hat to buy holiday "thank you" gifts for the pub's four key patrons - Norm, Cliff, Frasier, and Paul. Using the clues that follow, can you determine which employee bought which patron's gift?

1. Coach's gift did NOT go to someone with a four-letter name.

2. Frasier received a gift from someone of the opposite sex, but Paul did not.

3. Norm was happy that he didn't get Carla's gift.

HERE is the solution.
