Rebecca is at another crossroads in her life. She knows that she doesn't want to do the bar shtick for the rest of her life, but is now unsure what she wants to do with her career. Regardless, she goes on one job interview after another, each time dooming herself for 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. Frasier and Lilith finally tell Sam directly that he shouldn't be spending that much time with their son. Sam understands, but not until after the revelations that Sam likes kids and that Frederick now considers Sam more a father than Frasier. 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. In his dream, Sam gets a message directly from Elvis Presley about what he... Written by Huggo

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.
