Just before they are ready to do it, Rebecca's talk of "making a baby" makes Sam realize what they are doing and he gets nervous and runs out on her. He needs advice and turns to Frasier.

Cute, But!?
6 September 2019 | by HitchcocSee all my reviews

In their efforts to reproduce, Sam and Rebecca begin to see the consequences of their actions. Sam loses his sex drive because of these possibilities and Rebecca is confused. Soon the bar patrons get in on the act. There is some funny stuff going on when Woody assumes control of the bar. I feel a little uncomfortable with this story line.
