Storyline

They agree to do so. When Diane says that she knows the perfect person for Sam - bright, witty, attractive - he and Coach come to the conclusion that she is talking about herself and on the flip side that Sam would be her perfect date. Thinking that Diane is not bringing another woman, Sam looks for no one for Diane. On date night, Diane indeed does come in with "Gretchen" for Sam. Scrambling, Sam grabs the first stranger he sees to be Diane's date, that being Andy 'Andy' Schroeder. Andy agrees with the ruse. However after Andy makes a comment to Diane about murdering a waitress, Sam thinks that it better that they go on a double date solely for Diane's protection.

Diane's Perfect Date (#1.17)
4 April 2014 | by (Canada) – See all my reviews

After Diane has some disastrous date her and Sam make fun of each other's dating patterns and agree on setting each other up for a blind date. But Sam thinks that Diane is setting him up with herself so he doesn't look for anyone. But when he sees that he is wrong he grabs a random guy he meets and brings him to Diane. Only it turns out that the guys just came out of a jail for murdering a waitress.

A very fun episode. I an see how Sam thought Diane was talking about herself when she said she will set him up with an ideal girl. And the twist of the guy being a murderer was also hilarious. Derek McGrath was a great actor for that part.
