When we left off in yesterday’s Part I post, Sam was trying to warn Diane that her old friend Heather was hitting on him: ”Listen, sweetheart, I didn’t want to have to tell you this, because you’re pals and all that, but she’s coming onto me, gangbusters. And I’ll tell you something else. I need a little help here because I don’t have that much experience saying no to women. The closest I’ve ever gotten is: ‘Not now, we’re landing.’”
But Diane doesn’t believe him, so she invites them both over for dinner. But when Heather pulls out all the stops with her next outfit, Diane starts to falter.
Heather: “Well, what do you think about this dress? I just bought it today. I saw it and I just had to have it.”
Diane: “Why did you buy a dress today of all days? You come into the bar, you meet…everyone, and you go out and get a ‘come-get-me dress.’ Explain yourself.”
In the words of a man in the 80s, she looks like a stone cold fox:
A few newer dresses and pumps that fit the bill:
1. Dagmar Majorelle Tunic Dress. 2. ASOS T-Shirt Dress with Embellished Shoulder Detail. 3. Corpus Acid Wash Sleeveless Shirtdress. 4. Helmut Lang Slack Drape Panel Dress. 5. Seduce Geo Enamel Earrings. 6. Stella McCartney Cherubina Heavyweight Jersey Dress. 7. By Malene Birgir Silk Satin-Trimmed Woven Dress. 8. Charles by Charles David Pinot in Sepia Combo. 9. Maison Martin Margiela Stacked Cyldiner-Heel Sandal. 10. Jason Wu Short Sleeve Dress in Moss Green.
And finally, the scene in which Diane loses her cool, thankfully captured and uploaded on YouTube by some other Cheers fanatic:
