Storyline

When Sam goes away on vacation, he chooses Woody to be boss at the bar. Woody is prepared to do so, but unprepared for the Dear John letter he receives from Beth. Wanting to explain in person, Beth and her fiancé, Leonard Twilley - who Woody knows - plan on stopping in Boston on their way to Niagara Falls. Although Woody is sad, he is more fearful of looking pitiful in Beth's eyes by not having his own girl on his arms. Seeing that Beth and Leonard's stopover is a short one, Diane thinks that making up a girlfriend for Woody is not a bad idea. However Beth and Leonard's stopover is a bit longer than either Diane or Woody thought, and Beth suggests that they, including Woody's girlfriend, go out for dinner. As a last resort, Woody picks a name out of Sam's little black book - Desiree Harrison - who, according to Sam "is the best" and has multiple stars next to her name. When Desiree comes to the bar at the appointed time, she is not what quite Woody expects. Written by Huggo

The Book of Samuel (#5.11)
20 May 2014 | by (Canada) – See all my reviews

Sam goes away and leaves Woody in charge of the bar. At that time Woody's girlfriend writes him that she has to break up with him as she is getting married. Her and her fiancé are coming by the bar to talk to him. He pretends that he has a girlfriend and they want to have a dinner together. He uses Sam's book to find a date. Only the woman he calls turns out to be Sam's maid.

Good episode. Woody is so sweet in it. The ending when he talks to Desiree was absolutely cute. He is such a nice guy and always so funny. This was sure a good episode for him. Frasier's one liner made me laugh a lot as well.
