Evan Drake invites Sam and a date onto his yacht for the weekend, Evan implying that it should be Rebecca since Sam and Rebecca are supposedly dating. Sam has someone else in mind - Julie, perhaps the most superficial person in the world - instead. Rebecca finds out about the invitation and of course insists that Sam bring her so that she can get closer to her unrequited love, Evan Drake. Sam reluctantly agrees, but brings along his "sister" Julie as well. Sam and Rebecca are hoping that this trip ends up being their conquest of Julie and Evan respectively, but Evan and Julie and Lorenzo the cabin steward may have other things on their minds. That may leave Sam and Rebecca to find their own fun together. Written by Huggo

Did You Know?


After Lorenzo answers the door to Julie's room when Sam knocks on it, Sam says: "I've got to stay off boats, man!" This would be an allusion to the time when Sam rented a sailboat with the intent of proposing to Diane, only to have her reject his proposal. And the sinking of his own boat between seasons 5 and 6.

Carla tells Evan Drake that a truck is towing his Rolls (Royce), but there's no way she could see that from the below-ground vantage point of Cheers. See more »

Skerritt is great in this episode as he is in all the episodes he appears in. Unfortunately, Rebecca's chasing Mr Drake storyline has long since run out of gas. I realize they used this story arc to make Rebecca more foolish and silly but it really got annoying after the first few episodes. She threw herself at him several episodes ago and he let her know then that he wasn't interested in her. Somehow that was all forgotten the next episode when she acted as though nothing had ever happened. Her constant whining about Evan in this episode is silly because she never even tried to speak to him let alone tell him she's interested. Most ridiculous of all, she's there under the guise of being Sam's girlfriend. Does she honestly think Drake would be receptive to her switching rooms while Sam is right there? Especially considering that he really seems to like Sam and considers him a friend. This entire episode would have been better if not for Rebecca's constant whining over Drake.
