Sam is in the middle of picking up an attractive woman named Suzanne in the bar, when he's telephoned by another former lover named Denise who wants to see him as soon as possible. So many women, so little time. He chooses to see Denise, while he puts current prey, Suzanne, on hold. However, Denise doesn't quite want a liaison: she tells Sam that he is one of two possible men who fathered her newborn child. Sam is shaken at the news, and swears to God that he will forgo sex forever if the child isn't his. He decides to change that to three months, which is like a lifetime for Sam. He quickly finds out that he is not the father, and is relieved. He is just about ready to head off for an evening of debauchery with Suzanne when Carla reminds him of his vow to God. Because of Carla's strong Catholic background, she convinces Sam, with a little unwitting help from Woody, that a vow to God is something one should not take lightly. Sam asks for advice from Father Barry and Frasier, the ... Written by Huggo

Swear to God (#7.2)
4 June 2014 | by (Canada) – See all my reviews

One of the women Sam had sex with calls and says that she has a child and he might be the father. Sam swears to God not to have sex for three months if he ends up not being the father. When he finds out that he isn't he really struggles with his promise and almost breaks it until he finds a bible in a hotel drawer and thinks it is a miracle.

Never thought Sam was that into God. But this brings us a fun episode. Him freaking out when Woody walks into the bar dressed as Moses was a great moment. And so was the ending when he so excitedly tells Carla and Frasier about the bibles in the hotel rooms without realizing that it is a normal thing!
