Storyline

Diane is doing some part-time teaching at the college and tells Sam that one of her students is falling in love with her. The problem is that she prides herself on being attracted to men solely on their inner beauty, but this guy, whose name is Lance Apollonaire, is drop dead gorgeous which is stirring animal passions in her. He is also young and a student. Sam thinks she is making this story up to make him jealous, especially with such a made up name as Lance Apollonaire. Is Lance real or a figment of Diane's "let's make Sam jealous" mind? Meanwhile, Cliff has reached one of his goals in life, that to become a member of a lodge called Knights of the Scimitar. He wants to invite all the guys into the lodge as well, they all really not wanting to join. He does eventually talk Norm into joining as it's a good place to make business contacts. Norm breezes through the interview and gets into the lodge, which he admits is made up of a bunch of good guys despite his sole original rationale ... Written by Huggo

Knights of the Scimitar (#5.8)
20 May 2014 | by (Canada) – See all my reviews

Diane is doing some part time teaching and one of her students is into her, he is also very hot. Diane tries to make Sam jealous, but at first he doesn't believe he even exists. So the guy comes in and everyone considers him gorgeous. At the end though Sam wins Diane back with a kiss.

Not a bad episode. Definitely a very good looking guy. I looked up he seems to have quite a career in soap operas. He sure has the great looks for it.

It was also funny how Cliff was getting Norm into his lodge, many hilarious scenes.
