Robin is taking a day off work to spend with Rebecca doing her spontaneous planned dream date that she's fantasized about since puberty: a walk along the beach, a picnic in the park, a paddle-boat ride, a trip to the zoo, The Phantom of the Opera, a late supper and a roll in the hay. But competitive Robin and equally competitive Sam get into a continual war of oneupmanship in bar games of darts and pool, each won by Sam. However, Robin challenges Sam to a game of intellectual cunning: chess. Robin makes the challenge irresistible for Sam with a wager of a week's salary, Sam figuring that he can use the winnings to buy back the bar. Sam accepts despite the fact that he doesn't know how to play chess. Using some transmitting equipment and Norm and Pete sitting in front of a computer chess game, Sam takes on Robin with Norm and Pete's computer help. Could this cheating get Sam his bar back, or will the computer lose, or...? Meanwhile, Rebecca does go on her dream date, her actual date ... Written by Huggo

Indoor Fun with Sammy and Robby (#8.19)
11 June 2014 | by (Canada) – See all my reviews

Robin gets a day off work, a first in a long time and Rebecca planned a day of dates she has always dreamt about. Only Robin gets sucked into competing with Sam in all kinds of things, darts, pool and even chess. So Rebecca ends up going on all those days with Woody and Sam wins Robin's one week salary which is just a penny.

Hilarious episode. Robin is a great character and Roger Rees is so great at this role. I want more of him. Let's have a Frasier and Robin episode! It is also a greatly written script with lots of good jokes that are well timed and it is very lighthearted, unpredictable and silly. Beautiful episode.
