Nick Tortelli - John Allen Hill

John Allen Hill

John Allen Hill (Keene Curtis) is the owner of Melville's, the seafood restaurant located directly above Cheers. Though Melville's was mentioned a lot throughout the series, Hill did not first appear until season nine (during which he bought the restaurant and first became its owner.)

Hill is a pompous, uptight old man who has a deep disdain for the Cheers gang, and considers them to be low-class. In the season nine episode entitled "Achilles Hill," Sam dated Hill's daughter Valerie as a way to get back at Hill for his evil attitude towards the Cheers bar. He and Carla have a complicated love-hate relationship; they frequently insult and curse at each other even during their frequent bouts of sex.

    The most interesting thing which I heard of, in this township of Hull, was an unfailing spring, whose locality was pointed out to me on the side of a distant hill, as I was panting along the shore, though I did not visit it. Perhaps, if I should go through Rome, it would be some spring on the Capitoline Hill I should remember the longest.
    Henry David Thoreau (1817–1862)
