Also, several characters from St. Elsewhere once appeared on Cheers, and since St. Elsewhere is just a figment of an autistic child's imagination, then Cheers, Frasier, The Tortellis, and Wings are also a figment of the child's imagination.
More likely, the St Elsewhere
characters are real people that appeared on Cheers
and also encountered the autistic boy at some point, thus leading to the autistic boy integrating them into his own fantasy life. Thus, Cheers, Frasier, The Tortellis, Wings,
AND Caroline in the City
(since Daphne & Niles from Frasier
once appeared in an episode of Caroline in the City
) are all "real." Their reality just happened to bleed into this child's fantasy.
Daphne and Niles appeared in Caroline in the City?!
This links Frasier, Friends, Seinfeld, Mad About You, Mad Man of the People, The Single Guy, Cheers, and Wings! Pretty much every NBC sitcom from the late 80s and early 90s occured in the same universe!
Because a character from one of these series appeared in one of these OTHER series!
It's like Six Degrees of Kevin Bacon
Cheers took place in Boston and had a character named Frasier who later got his own series, Frasier, featuring Daphne and Niles who appeared in Caroline in the City which featured Lea Thompson as Caroline who appeared in Friends, which featured a character named Phoebe who's twin sister was a waitress in the restaurant in Mad About You where Paul Buchman has subleted his apartment to Kramer on Seinfeld. Further the blackout caused by Jamie in MAY effected Mad Man of the People, Ross "dated" the main character in The Single Guy and Frasier and Lilith appeared on Wings! FURTHER characters from Cheers spun off St. Elsewhere!
