Rebecca is still in a quandary over what to do about the marriage proposal from Martin Teal. In her own words, Martin, her boss, is a weaselly little twerp, but she doesn't want to jeopardize her career by saying no. She talks Sam into rekindling their fake relationship to the point of being in a fake engagement to throw Martin off her trail. Martin however makes a preemptive move by sending Sam down to Cancun on a bartender exchange for a month, Sam who is thrilled by this opportunity. While away, Sam thinks nothing about Cheers or Rebecca. When Sam misses the corporate jet back to Boston, Martin takes that as a sign that Sam has forgotten about Rebecca and his job in Boston. Once again, Martin hits on Rebecca. Rebecca manages to hold Martin off in the short term while she works on her supposed "grief". She heads down to Cancun herself to plead with Sam to come back. Will Sam give up his new carefree life to help Rebecca? If he does, he may take the ultimate advantage of her if given... Written by Huggo

Hola, Sammy!
30 April 2011 | by (New York, NY USA) – See all my reviews

I understand that Martin Teal is aggressive, and that he moves fast, but his wooing of Rebecca is more like a terrorist attack than a romantic overture. He threatens, he manipulates, he proposes marriage after knowing her less than eighteen hours. A bit much.

This episode concludes the storyline started in "Executive Sweet" as Martin basically deports Sam in order to get closer to Rebecca. Sammy, who in real life would already be dying of HIV/AIDS, ventures down to Mexico where he bangs everything in a bikini bottom. Gerald Hiken as Dennis continues to add depth to an otherwise straight-forward two-parter, and as far as I can see this is the first episode in which Kirstie Alley began to gain weight, an ongoing saga that is still going strong today.

Rebecca holding Sam at gunpoint might be just a little much, but otherwise this is decent Cheers. By the way, the translation of Spanish Norm's joke is as follows:

SAM: What's up, Pepe?

PEPE: My shorts... the water is freezing!
