Storyline

Carla is the bar's resident sports trivia buff, and takes on all comers. Woody thinks he's up to the challenge and tries to memorize all in Carla's sports book. He ultimately goes just a little too far in his studying. Diane is doing some studying of her own. She is taking a psychology course on human sexuality, and is racking her brain to come up with an interesting term paper topic. Sam figures that sex is his area of expertise, and thus offers to be Diane's term paper subject. She's a bit reluctant at first due to their past sexual history, but Sam is so adamant, she agrees. Without Sam's knowledge, she writes a paper on Don Juanism. The paper gets raves from her professor, who thinks it's publishable. His only reservations are that "Trevor" - the name she's given Sam in her paper - is too perfect an example of the subject that he could be construed as being made up. In getting the paper published, Diane has to decide whether to divulge Sam as Trevor, which could open up Sam's less... Written by Huggo

Quotes

Diane Chambers: [about her first sexual encounter] It was the summer of my nineteenth year. He was a young man in uniform. It was a brief encounter. He left my arms and went to his doom.
Sam Malone: Oh no, he was killed, huh?
Diane Chambers: No, no, he went off to boot camp and came back with the most God awful haircut I'd ever seen.

Don Juan Is Hell (#4.11)
14 May 2014 | by (Canada) – See all my reviews

Diane is taking a class on human sexuality and uses Sam as a case study for her project. She presents him as having a Don Juan syndrome and her professor is really impressed by the paper. After the class where she presents the case the class comes to the bar to meet Sam as he wanted. And Diane tries to make him feel better that her conclusion about him is not 100% true.

It was pretty funny. Actually Sam's character seems pretty tame when compared to the ones from today's shows. But yes he is very much a player guy as they want to portray him.

The stories about Cliff's squash and Woody learning sports trivia are alright. Not much in them but they also take little screen time.
