She mentions Sam's fragility about the last time she left as one excuse, but she reassures Frasier that she really does want to go. In private with Sam though, she accuses him of thinking that this incident will lead to the end of hers and Frasier's relationship for a variety of reasons.

Cheerio, Cheers (#3.22)
12 May 2014 | by (Canada) – See all my reviews

Frasier gets a great opportunity in a university in Europe. Diane is supposed to go live therewith him and it means that she may never see the rest again, including Sam. Sam throws her a good bye party and at the end they have a moment when they can't let go of each other hugging and have a kiss, but then it ends out in fight and they have to say good bye.

There was Coach again! But according to Wiki this was the last episode filmed with him. So good bye to Coach again....

The best part of the show was Norm and Cliff's kiss, so funny, love the characters.

But I was kind of bored by Sam and Diane.
