  • Episode Description
  • We finally found out who Sam's telephone proposal at the end of the last episode was to - Diane! But Diane fears that Sam is meerely on the rebound after breaking up with Janet, so asks him to repeat the proposal in a more romantic occasion, but when he does (on a boat), she refuses, causing Sam to make her walk the plank. Later Diane says she does want to get married, but Sam has now retracted the proposal.moreless

  • Quotes (7)

    • Diane: In that case may I suggest you propose again. I assure you this time I will accept your proposal. Sam: Fine. I propose you step in front of a speeding bus. From now on I'm dedicating myself to life, liberty, and the pursuit of every woman in Boston except you.

    • Diane: Oh, Frasier, please tell me where Sam is. I have to talk with him. Frasier: Diane, in light of your disposal of him last night I think it's better he be left alone right now. Diane: That poor man. Can you imagine how he must feel? Frasier: Gee, I'll try.

    • Sam: I'm fine everybody. I just don't want to talk about that's all. (Whispers to Frasier) Can I talk to you just for a minute?

    • (Diane says no to Sam's proposal.) Sam: Seems to me you have two choices. One--I can throw you in, or two--you can jump in.

    • Norm: Woody, are you in pain, buddy? Woody: No, I was just thinkin'. Norm: Yeah, well, the first time's always the worst.
