with him picking sam he knows its not a lifetime commitment and gives him an out.
Mulvajo, I think you're absolutly right, there was an expectation of a ring and kids with Rachel. With Sam he could be a single man (as in not married) living the high life, esp. now with his new self image. But the outfits on the dog..... ugh, even when I was 6 and dressing up my cats I would have found that many outfits for a pet a bit daunting. Perhaps the best way to describe sam is this, weight stack. I shall explain, and this is my boyfriend's saying. Several years ago, a bunch of guys were in the gym lifting weights. One guy (guys all late teens) bet his friend he could put his male member/lower brain/insert your own euphenism on the top weight not lifted, and pull it out before the lifted weights fell back down. Well, he didn't make it, and sufice to say he was left with, umm, injuries and issues peeing. The family sued and won, but the lesson of the store is, boys, don't stick your member into things that will smash it off, this applies to weight machines and also to women. Some women just seem to have 'weight stack' tattooed on their forehead, don't stick it in, bad things (debt, unwanted kids, guilt, etc) will ensue.
