The Gallery Show is the best episode of "Samantha Who?" I've seen so far
In a nutshell: Samantha receives an invitation to ex Todd's photo gallery show. She goes to the apartment intending to tell him she's not going but Todd spills that Chloe didn't want Sam to come. So Sam tells him she's now dating someone named Rance. Moments later, after failing with Andrea and Dena's help to find someone suitable at the library, Sam finds someone trying to illegally unlock a car named Craig (Jerry O'Connell). She's found her Rance! At the gallery, her parents Regina and Howard are looking around with Howard bored throughout when they spot a picture of a naked woman with no head and her breasts covered by her arm. Howard stops at that then turns when Regina reveals it's their daughter. Meanwhile, Dena turns up at the wrong gallery that has a talking man in a glass cage because Andrea intentionally gave her the wrong instructions. The glass cage man gives her the right one after getting irritated at Dena's constant jabbering. Back at the real gallery, Craig offers to take her coat and purse which gives Sam a flashback of when her bad self was mugged. Guess who the mugger was? So Sam tries to get him off the premises before anyone noticed just as she confronts Todd and Chloe. After the usual rounds of "I'm over you", Sam tells Craig about their earlier encounter and Craig confesses stopping after encounter after she broke his arm. Just as things become okay with them however, the alarm sounds when Craig leaves temporarily prompting Sam to shout "Thief!" Turns out Howard was stealing Sam's photo to keep anyone else from looking. That prompts Chloe to bare her breasts to Todd in a fit of jealousy. Oh, brother! After Craig leaves for good, Todd admits to Sam he put the red dot (meaning it had been sold) on her display because he couldn't part with it so it seems they might be an item again. Just before they leave together, Dena finally arrives with Chapman to tell Andrea her new office will be in the copy room!...Wow, this episode fired on all cylinders! The lines were so hilarious here that I dare not quote them lest I spoil anyone's else fun. If anyone wonders if the girl-loses-memory-tries-to-be-better-person premise would actually work for the long run, the events happening here seems to be as good a place as any to apply in the affirmative. With only two episodes left, I can't wait to see how it all ends up this first season!
