As Robin walks into the bar office, what he sees is Rebecca in a state of undress and Sam's shirt button stuck in her blouse's zipper. Rebecca tells Robin that something almost happened with Sam but that nothing did happen. It's a lie, which Sam is supporting. Robin's return prompts Rebecca to go back with him, and to support him during the time of his indictment. She will continue to work at the bar until she can find another, better job. Sam goes back to setting the bar back up the way he used to have it. As a show of gratitude for the support of his customers, Sam decides to wipe out all the bar tabs, including Norm's. But back with Sam and Rebecca, they decide to move on from their sexual encounter. However Rebecca confesses that it was one of the most powerful experiences of her life. As much as he says he had a good time, Sam, on the other hand, states that perhaps his expectations after three years was a little too much compared to the actual act. Rebecca is hurt by this ...

As the camera is focused on Norm and Cliff at the far side of the bar, a man in a gray suit passes by as he heads towards the back of the bar. When the shot switches to Woody and Carla moments later, the same man is seen in the background, suddenly back at the front and proceeding to walk by Norm and Cliff again. See more »


Rebecca Howe: You have been after me for three years. And you finally got me. I mean, if I was even adequate, I know that you would have run out there and told every bozo in the bar.
Sam Malone: You don't think I wasn't dying to do that. It was making me crazy. It's just that I thought I'd be betraying our friendship. I never really had a friend before.
Rebecca Howe: You have lots of friends.
Sam Malone: No, no, I've never *had* a friend before.

Love Is a Really, Really Perfectly Okay Thing (#9.1)
18 June 2014 | by (Canada) – See all my reviews

Sam and Rebecca end up making love in the office and this is when Robin comes in, he realized that he loves Rebecca and will turn himself in. So they lie and they don't tell it to the rest of the people. Rebecca then feels that it was because Sam didn't like it, while he just did it out of respect for their friendship, but when they tell it now, nobody believes.

Not a very good episode. I hope it is not going to Rebeca and Sam together, they were too into what happened between them. Also not too many jokes. The funniest part of the episode was Robin, but he acted way out of his character. No way would he come and turn himself in and lose everything for Rebecca who he couldn't even date monogamously
