Samantha Newly used to be a bitch. And maybe she still is.
But the self-absorbed individual woke up from a coma to begin Samantha Who? and doesn't remember her past. As a result, this character is focused on becoming a better person.
The star quit her job, but signs of "Bad Sam" still pop up from time to time. Fortunately for viewers, it's pretty hilarious when they do.
Sam: Couple of good things about being in a coma: no fattening food, lots of rest, they sponge you down every day. It's like a spa. Bad things: my nose itches, I have something called the "Pina Colada Song" stuck in my head, and, oh yeah, sometimes I can hear what people in my room are saying.
Sam: Good things about amnesia: all new clothes, no re-runs. Bad: every minute is like that dream where you haven't been to class all year, and the test is now.
