Storyline

Sam's old wolf-hound in crime, sportscaster Dave Richards, announces that he is now single and once again on the market. As a reflex, Sam goes off with him babe hunting until he sees Diane and remembers that he is now in a relationship. Dave is surprised at their relationship, and vows that they will no longer be an item within 24 hours. Sam and Diane are incredulous but nervous as to Dave's statement as they know Dave will do whatever he needs to to break them up. For Sam and Diane, things go from bad - when Diane finds out that Sam still has his little black book - to worse - when Dave drops off a date, Didi, for Sam. Thinking that Dave might actually be right, Sam goes off with Didi. After the fact of Sam's encounter with Didi, Sam and Diane have to decide if the the end goal or each small victory is what is most important in their relationship. They also have to decide if Dave's deliberate attempts to break them up should factor into the equation. Written by Huggo
