Phil Kepler


After Diane gives Sam a lavish gift of tickets to a Marvin Hagglar bout, Sam casually tells her that he loves her. To Diane, his comment is a meaningful gesture of their relationship. However to Sam, his comment is just something casual he would say to anyone. This dichotomy places Diane at a place where she feels they need to reevaluate their relationship, what their relationship actually means to each other and why they are together. They decide that perhaps they should take some time off from each other - a week - to do some soul searching about their relationship. If they can't come up with something constructive to say to each other after that time, Diane feels they should call the whole thing off. Sam uses the time away to go back to his male bonding with the guys in the bar. Although he has thought about his relationship with Diane and has yet come up empty, he isn't worried since he feels he has always worked best under pressure. When Sam and Diane eventually get back together... Written by Huggo

How Do I Love Thee?... Let Me Call You Back (#2.10)
4 May 2014 | by (Canada) – See all my reviews

When Diane gets Sam some great tickets for a fight he wanted to go and see he throws an "i love you" to her without noticing, but she is excited. After he says it doesn't mean anything, she is all upset and they end up preparing the reasons for why they are together that they tell each other.

A pretty boring episode. I had trouble concentrating on that cheesy story and dialogue.

Diane was also horrible as drunk, lousy acting.

The only really funny part was the beginning scene when conning the con guy doesn't work out.
