    This episode serves as a way to enhance the "Coach" character. Coach has just met Nina, a girl that moved in his building and is actually really drawn to her. We get to learn more about Coach's goofy behaviour and how he gets a woman to notice him: he intentionally injures himself so they will feel sympathy towards him (lying falling off the stairs!)!. When Sam hits on her, he gets rejected (a shocking moment for everyone who knows him), and then he gets rejected again, and again, and again. When "Coach" finally asks Nina out, she turns him down politely."Coach" starts going upstairs for dinner and "falls"! And, it works! Probably one of the best last scenes up until this point of the season!
