Since Sam's apartment is being fumigated after he has a sleepless night killing silverfish, Rebecca offers her pull-out sofa to him as a place to sleep. With some snide remarks about her love life, Sam declines her offer since he has a place to sleep with Julie, one of his stewardess bimbos. However Julie comes by the bar to tell Sam that their plans are off since she has a change in work schedule due to a Shiner's convention in Boston in turn resulting in extra flights in and out of Boston. After Julie leaves, Sam promptly locks himself out of the bar, not only without keys but also without his wallet and therefore without money and thus nowhere to sleep. Even if he had money to pay, there are no hotel rooms in Boston to be had due to the convention.

Esther Clavin: Dear Lord, bless Clifford and me, unworthy wretches that we are. Bless the postal system and keep it from harm by helping it to detect the real loonies. Bless our friends and thank you for letting Sam find succor here tonight. Bless the late Mr. Clavin. I know he's not in your vicinity but rather roasting in hell on a spit reserved for those who desert their family. Amen.

Look Before You Sleep (#11.20)
12 July 2014 | by (Canada) – See all my reviews

Sam's place is being fumigated and he needs a place to stay. Rebecca offers him to stay with her but he wants to stay with a stewardess only she has to go to work and he locks himself out of the bar. He goes through the whole gang trying to stay with them, but at the end ends up with Rebecca only she locks them out as well and they have to spend the night at Cliff's.

A pretty fun episode. It is great to see them outside the bar and Sam's bad luck is pretty funny with all of them. The funnest part is of course when he gets to Cliff and his mom, but other characters such as Carla and Hill bring lots of laughter
