* A few episodes mention Sam can't have platonic relationships with women, or ever have a women who he doesn't try to form a sexual relationship with. Why do these episodes never mention his friendship with Carla?

** It's hinted at in-universe that her family is wealthy, which would allow her to continue her studies without loans, to a point. At the time, as the previous troper pointed out, academia didn't really prepare people for the "real world." She lacks any real skills or work experience, and she's not the type to get her hands dirty. She probably meant to have an academic career, teaching university, but she also failed at that.

** Without wishing to diminish the OP's struggles or difficulties, different people struggle in different ways, and they find different ways of coping with their struggles. Some recovering alcoholics, like the OP, find it difficult if not impossible to be near alcohol or the temptation it provides; others find it easier. Given his occupation, Sam is presumably one of the latter.

*** Diane states that she has "numerous alma maters," but never really says she's finished any of her degrees (at least, past her undergrad). Unlike the skill-heavy and (relatively) technologically advanced programs that are prevalent today, Diane has few practical skills in addition to the already-noted grating personality. She probably also has quite an accumulated student loan debt, which keeps her working.

*** That makes sense; Sam bought the bar shortly before going sober so he probably feels like it's easier to not drink there since he's been on the wagon since buying it. Conversely, he mentioned he can't hang out with his old drinking buddies anymore since he feels the need to get drunk whenever they're around.

* In "Power Play", emphasis seems to be placed on the show Diane's watching on her portable TV (just before Same comes back)--we actually hear some the dialogue. Were we supposed to get the idea she was watching a "real" show, or was the dialogue we hear from the TV just recorded for the episode?
