Rebecca is whisked off her feet by the latest man of her dreams, the extremely wealthy businessman, Robin Colcord. He has taken her on his private jet to several cities on the west coast, lavished her with expensive clothes and jewelry, and pampered her with spas and facials. Sam on the surface is getting on with his womanizing life, but a dream unmasks some what he concludes are deeper feelings for Rebecca which he believes Robin doesn't feel. Some additional information Sam finds out about what's not going on between Rebecca and Robin may help his cause. Written by Huggo

Offstage, Sam makes out with a woman on the pool table in the back room. As they emerge into the bar, Sam looks at her backside and says "Don't worry, the chalk will rub off." However, as she walks away the back of her dress is now visible and is perfectly clean. See more »


Dr. Frasier Crane: So Sam, do you remember anything else about the dream?
Sam Malone: No, that was the eeriest thing. I mean it was real, it was vivid, like you, like real life.
Carla LeBec: Sammy, that's a premonition dream. That means it's really going to happen.
Dr. Frasier Crane: Oh Carla, that's an old wives' tale.
Carla LeBec: I'm an old wife.

The Improbable Dream: Part 2 (#8.2)
7 June 2014 | by (Canada) – See all my reviews

Rebecca hits it off with Robin Colcord and he takes her on a trip in his private jet through the west coast where he gets her a lot of presents. And Sam now wonders if he is caring for Rebecca even though they never slept together. He wants to tell her that he cares but just before he does Robin Colcord comes and tells her the same.

A very entertaining story. Man, Rebecca's entrance after the trip, gorgeous! My favorite part was the interpreting of Sam's crazy dream where Rebecca turns into Alan. And one thing me and Carla have in common is our reaction to Sam's romances with his coworkers. Blech it took me a while to get over that nonsense that was him and Diane, don't do it with Rebecca!
