Carla: [about Sam wanting to have a child] Do you have a mother picked out?
Sam: No, not really.
Carla: Oh, does that mean, uh, you're not going to ask me?
Sam: Oh, I'm sorry, you know, I didn't think about you. Yeah, would you?
Carla: [incredulously] What, are you nuts? Do you think I'm going to go through labor an eighth time because you're a little lonely? Selfish bastard.

Sam is having a crisis. He realizes he loves little Frederick and also that he may never have a child. But he has a conversation with Elvis on TV (during a dream) and Elvis Presley presents him with some interesting possibilities. Next season is set up and it will be fun to see what happens.
