Commercial agent Lana Marshall comes into the bar with her latest client, a handsome but dim Czech hockey player. She specializes in professional male athletes, both in a professional representation sense and personal sense, as she sleeps with her clients. Once Carla tells her that Sam was once a professional athlete, Lana sets her sights on him. Flattered, Sam agrees to become her next client and bed-partner as he's searching for the spotlight, something that's been missing in his life since he quit baseball. After a while, he's happy with his new acting career, but unhappy that he feels that he is expected to perform for Lana between the sheets on command. Diane and Coach, using slightly different tactics, try to convince Sam that the loss of his self-esteem is not worth the acting career. Sam admits his decision and Lana's subsequent action is a bittersweet moment in this phase of his life.

When Carla uses the word "Wamsutta", this is in reference to the bedsheets made by the company of that name. See more
The group is having a discussion about the next president, in walks Tibor Svetkovic, a local hockey player. Diane doesn't know who this is and sarcastically asks everyone if he's going to be the president (because of the earlier conversation) in 1990. There wouldn't be a presidential election that year, the election would be either in 1988 or 1992. See more
Tell me something, Red. Are professional athletes better between the old Wamsuttas than ordinary men?
I've had no experience with ordinary men.
Oh, me neither. But I'm trying to work my way up to one.
