Storyline

Regardless, she goes on one job interview after another, each time dooming herself to failure. Meanwhile, Sam has been spending a lot of time lately with the Cranes. More specifically, he has been spending a lot of time with Frederick. Each day, Sam arrives at their house a little earlier and leaves a little later.

Later, Sam admits to himself that he wants to be a dad, but doesn't yet have an idea who the mother will be. Late one evening, Sam dozes off while watching Blue Hawaii (1961) on TV.

Uncle Sam Wants You (#9.26)
24 June 2014 | by (Canada) – See all my reviews

Sam gets attached to Frederick,but Cranes want to have some time with him too. So Sam wonders if maybe it is his biological clock ticking and he needs to get a baby. Then he falls asleep and Elvis on TV tells him to get it with Rebecca. When he tells the plan to Rebecca she gets very excited after a while as her careers hopes started to die.

Now this was a pretty fun cliffhanger. I hope they will go somewhere with it. Sam and Rebecca trying to get a baby (but hopefully without relationship) could be a fun storyline. Just fun and romance free.

How they got to it was also very entertaining to watch. Especially the Cranes in the morning.

So lets see if next season there will be some work done to get a brand new baby.
