The Coach's niece, Joyce, comes to Boston to attend BU. She comes to the bar bearing a letter from her father, the Coach's younger brother, for Sam: he asks Sam keep an eye out for his little girl, for if anything was to ever happen to her, he would blow his brains out. This is a heavy burden on Sam, and by association Diane. To keep her out of trouble, they ask the most innocent person they know to show her a good time, that person being Woody. Woody and Joyce have such a good time together that after a couple of days, they announce that they are engaged. This news throws Sam into a tizzy. Sam's attempts to end the engagement have an unintended result. Diane takes over, her talks with them also not going according to plan. Do Diane and Sam's tactics reflect the quality of their future parenting skills? Meanwhile, Frasier and Lilith are celebrating an anniversary of their first meeting.

The Godfather: Part 3 (#5.22)
27 May 2014 | by (Canada) – See all my reviews

Coach's niece is now in Boston to go to college. She also brings a letter to Sam from her father who asks to look after her and that if anything happens to her he will kill himself. Sam is very worried. He assigns Woody to show her around Boston as Woody is such a nice guy, but the two end up being engaged and Sam and Diane are trying to convince them to rethink that. She is also upset because Joyce now says that she won't go to college. At the end they succeed.

A pretty fun episode. Nice to see another small shout out to Coach, also done with Woody who is the sweet even though a bit dumb character.

Lilith and Frasier were fun once again!
