Reporter (as Rafael Mauro)
Tim Cunningham ...


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

Diane Chambers: I have to come up with a topic for my psychology paper by tonight. I'm at complete loss. Of course, I could churn out your run of the mill essay on sadomasochism, bestiality, bondage and discipline, but I'm looking for something with a little pizzazz.
