*** This review may contain spoilers ***

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!
