Storyline

Rebecca is upset that Evan Drake has promoted Sam to an executive position at corporate, the position of Eastern Regional Sales Manager to be more precise. Rebecca thinks something is fishy about the promotion. Despite having nothing to do even after asking Drake about his job responsibilities, Sam is oblivious to any ulterior motives for his promotion. Even after playing in the corporate league's first playoff game for the company, Sam is still oblivious but Rebecca catches on: Sam is the company's softball ringer, and once the playoffs are over, Sam will be let go from his executive position. Rebecca relishes the opportunity to rub Sam's smug nose in it, but a story by Sam make may her change her mind in telling him. Regardless, Sam uses any opportunity to reach his ultimate goal with Rebecca. Written by Huggo

The Sam in the Grey Flannel Suit (#6.20)
3 June 2014 | by (Canada) – See all my reviews

Evan Drake promotes Sam to an executive position. It is not well developed yet so basically does nothing all day. Rebecca is first mad but then she thinks there is something wrong and realizes that Sam was just hired to help their softball team win. When Sam finds it out he goes back to Cheers.

Not a bad episode. I guess the best moments are Sam in his new office playing with the pencil sharpener and breaking it He really showed well how out of place he was. Ad the scene with Rebecca coming to tell him the truth was very well done. One really starts to feel bad for Sam as well.
