It's been a couple of weeks since Coach and Irene got engaged and since Irene won $2 million in the lottery. However, Coach hasn't seen her at all. In fact she's postponed the wedding a couple of times and even moved, which she didn't tell Coach. It's obvious to everyone at the bar that it is over between Coach and Irene, everyone that is except Coach. Sam takes Coach aside to give him the facts. Just before Sam states the final obvious fact that Irene no longer wants to get married to Coach, Coach asks Sam to be his best man. Sam no longer has the heart to tell Coach the truth. Irene finally shows up, basically telling Coach that things are over between the two of them since "money changes people" and she is a changed person. Coach still thinks Irene is only going through a phase, and that she will eventually come back to him. So Coach still prepares for the wedding. By the scheduled wedding day, Coach, having every faith in humanity, is still certain Irene will show up. With others ... Written by Huggo

Sam Malone: Found something else of yours lying around my place.
[pulls out a garrish looking red and black teddy from the bag and holds it up to Diane]
Sam Malone: Remember this?
Diane Chambers: Good Lord. Is that for wearing or for signalling aircraft?!
Sam Malone: Well, this is your teddy isn't it?
Diane Chambers: I don't know which of your mindless bimbi left that in your apartment. If she paid money for it, she should be seen to and chemically altered.

Coach in Love: Part 2 (#3.7)
10 May 2014 | by (Canada) – See all my reviews

After winning lottery Irene keeps on postponing the wedding with coach and one day she comes in to cancel it. But Coach still believes that she will come back on their wedding day. Sam calls Irene's daughter and finds out that Irene is now engaged to some rich guy. Coach still doesn't want to accept it, but on the wedding day she doesn't show up and he has to deal with it.

Poor Coach! The whole episode was breaking my heart because he believed so much that Irene will be back. But the final scene when Diane doesn't let Sam pick up the phone and just believe like Coach does that it is Irene was very moving.

I also really liked how they kept everyone up with what happened in the previous episode by showing them at home talking about it to their families.
