And Coachie Makes Three (#2.15)
8 May 2014 | by (Canada) – See all my reviews

Because Coach is alone he keeps on coming to hang out with Sam and Diane. They want to have more alone time but don't have the guts to tell him. So they make a blind date, it seems to go very well but Coach doesn't get the point of it and sends Katheryn home to stay with Diane and Sam, so they have to finally tell it how it is.

Coach episodes are always good because there is so much Coach in them. How about the part where he can't remember the name of the woman he likes and the gang keeps on leaving the bar with updated information? I thought that was hilarious.

So were the part of him talking to Katheryn about the bank, one can see they really hit it off there even though it takes Coach a bit longer to realize it, as usual!
