The arrival in the bar of Brandee, a stereotypical dumb blonde, gets the tongues wagging of all the male patrons and of course Sam. Sam is annoyed at the fact that Diane doesn't approve of Brandee or Sam's choices of "fun" women in general. Despite this, Sam tries to prove that his choice of women is not restricted solely to the fun, fast woman stereotype. When this fails, Sam and Diane get into an on-going war of words, Diane accusing Sam of being an over-age adolescent, Sam accusing Diane of being a snob. Sam gets the last word in this issue. Meanwhile, Coach tries to fill in as the sage advisor for a former bar patron who's come back looking for Gus, a previous owner of the bar. Written by
