Storyline

Evan Drake invites Sam and a date onto his yacht for the weekend, Evan implying that it should be Rebecca since Sam and Rebecca are supposedly dating. Sam has someone else in mind - Julie, perhaps the most superficial person in the world - instead. Rebecca finds out about the invitation and of course insists that Sam bring her so that she can get closer to her unrequited love, Evan Drake. Sam reluctantly agrees, but brings along his "sister" Julie as well. Sam and Rebecca are hoping that this trip ends up being their conquest of Julie and Evan respectively, but Evan and Julie and Lorenzo the cabin steward may have other things on their minds. That may leave Sam and Rebecca to find their own fun together. Written by Huggo

Sam Bangs His Sister
29 April 2011 | by (New York, NY USA) – See all my reviews

Sam and Rebecca join Evan Drake at sea for a weekend of romantic misunderstandings. This is a very good episode, and one of the first I can remember watching during "Cheers" original run. It was a nice time to get away from the bar and enjoy a new locale. Sam's "sister" Julie wins the award for the most horrific 80's fright-wig in history, and her wandering hairstyle is different in almost every shot. Her shameless greed and lust is admirable and I would have loved to see more of this character.

Meanwhile back at Cheers Woody falls for the old birthday gag. "What are the odds that those four people all have the same birthday as... Cliff and me?" Back on the boat determined slut Julie refuses to sleep with her brother Sam in order to pursue Evan Drake, but when Evan gets a severe conscience attack she makes sex with the Cabana Boy instead. Okay, Evan's speech is a little holier-than-thou... were they setting his character up to be Pope? Is he an executive or saint? A nice violent sight gag ends the episode and we're on our way back to port.

GRADE: B+
