I Call Your Name (#3.3)
9 May 2014 | by (Canada) – See all my reviews

Diane is in a bad mood and soon Sam find out why. Frasier comes to the bar and tells him about his client whose girlfriend yelled out a name of an ex boyfriend in bed. Sam knows that Frasier talks about him and Diane. And he uses it to bug Diane. The three of them have a conversation and work it out.

Well a good episode already because Diane is less annoying than Sam in this episode. And I loved the final scene where she has a bit of revenge on him, well done!.

The story of Cliff being afraid of the guy he got fired was very amusing as well.
