For the bachelor party the guys at the bar throw for Sam, Woody offhandedly asks Diane if she would be the girl who jumps out of the cake. Although she abhors such male sexual rituals, she agrees if only to stop someone else from "pleasuring" Sam. At the party, just as Diane is ready to come out of the cake, Norm makes a comment which makes Sam reexamine out loud for the first time this wedding and the fact that Diane will now be the one and only woman in his life. After jumping out of the cake mad at Sam for his comments, Diane later offers Sam a proposition: she will give him a last 24-hours of freedom to do whatever he pleases with whomever he pleases. Sam excitedly agrees until Diane throws in that she too will have her last 24-hours of freedom to do whatever she pleases with whomever she pleases. Will Sam still go along with Diane's plan and if so what will he do and what will she do? Written by Huggo

One Last Fling (#5.18)
22 May 2014 | by (Canada) – See all my reviews

The guys are planning Sam's bachelor party and Woody asks Diane to be the girl that jumps out of a cake. Only when Sam sees the cake he gets all worried about the fact that Diane is his last woman for the rest of his life. Diane is mad about it and says they both have 24 hours for their last fling. But Sam is more jealous of Diane than wanting to have that fling.

Well I get the joke. To see how a guy gets over the fact that his wife will be the last woman he has and is more happy about it. But I just can't stand Diane in it. I can't stand that she agreed to be in the cake and ruin his bachelor party. I can't stand that she got mad over the normal worry. I can't stand that Sam was apologizing to her. And in return I also can't stand that he didn't want Diane to have her fun as well. They represent an annoying, stuck up, prudent couple to me. Marriage ruins characters on TV shows
