After 10 days of therapy with Dr. Crane and AA meetings, Sam realizes the destructive ways of his recent drunken carousing behavior. Diane comes back to the bar wanting to talk to Sam. Each is afraid that the other is still in love with the other, but they simultaneously tell each other that they are over the other. However Diane goes further and tells Sam that she and Frasier are going together. Sam passes this news along to everyone else in the bar. As Julie, the latest waitress quits because of Sam's cheating ways, Sam needs a new waitress and suggests Diane come back to work there. Both Diane and Frasier are individually reluctant for her to do so, but the Coach, acting as the psychologist, may be able to convince all concerned that it's a good idea. Written by Huggo

Rebound: Part 2 (#3.2)
9 May 2014 | by (Canada) – See all my reviews

Both Sam and Diane believe that the other one has still feelings for the other. Diane tells Sam that she is dating Frasier. The waitress in Cheers quits because Sam cheated on her and he needs a new one. So Coach makes it so Diane comes back. Frasier at first doesn't want it but Coach convinces him as well.

The second part of the season beginning where Diane is brought back into the bar. A good strategy as it makes it easier to have good story lines and with Frasier it will sure be a few.

Coach was great in this episode with his manipulation of everyone to get Diane back, indeed a great character.
