Sam and Rebecca have definitely decided that they are going to have a baby together. Rebecca wants the conception not just to be a technical exercise, but a special night that they can tell their child about. The night should be a romantic one. Just before they are ready to do it, Rebecca's talk of "making a baby" makes Sam realize what they are doing and he gets nervous and runs out on her. He needs advice and turns to Frasier. Frasier thinks Sam's nervousness is related to the fact of the purpose, as opposed to the act of making love. Sam needs to make the evening more about making love than making a baby. Concerned that she did something wrong, Rebecca turns to Lilith for advice on the situation. Lilith thinks that Sam's nervousness was due to the fact that he has never made love with the purpose of having a child, and to make the act of this lovemaking special and different than the umpteen million other times he's made love to women, Rebecca should focus on the purpose of siring ...

Baby Balk (#10.1)
24 June 2014 | by (Canada) – See all my reviews

Sam and Rebecca get ready to make a baby. They have a date for it but Sam just can't do it. He runs to Cheers and tells it to Frasier who suggests him to think of it as recreational sex he is used to. But Lilith gives Rebecca the opposite advice of reminding Sam that it is a procreational sex.

So it looks like Frasier was right and not Lilith in this case. The two Cranes giving the opposite advice and Sam and Rebecca struggling about it was a pretty great idea. Lots of fun.

The second story about Woody being in charge was kind of forgettable, although it was hilarious to see Carla being blown away by the fan.
