“Sam is an outgoing, friendly guy who is brimming with youthful energy. He plays guitar and drums, and wants to start a band with Sebastian as soon as he has enough songs together. However, he does have a habit of starting ambitious projects and not finishing them. Sam is a little stressed about the impending return of his father, who has been away for years due to his line of work.”
Dev Update #12

Sam is a villager who lives in Pelican Town. He's one of the twelve characters available to marry.[1] He lives in the southern part of town, just north of the river (1 Willow Lane).

Sam is usually in his house practicing guitar and playing video games, or in The Stardrop Saloon game room with his friends Sebastian and Abigail. He also works part time at JojaMart.

He's has a reputation of being a prankster and troublemaker, and is often in trouble with the Mayor. Sebastian tells you at the Luau that one year Sam put a bunch of sardines in the soup as a prank, and if you "ever wonder why Sam leads the town in community service hours." He is also a bit of a glutton, and is always talking about being hungry for or smelling pizza.

Schedule

Sam can often be found practicing his guitar in his bedroom. He's also frequently seen outside of his house playing a handheld video game, or attempting skateboard tricks. On weekends he can be found playing pool at The Stardrop Saloon. He works part time at JojaMart on Monday and Wednesday. If the player finishes the Community Center bundles, he will instead be working in the Artifacts and Minerals display in the Museum (near the fireplace). During spring he frequents the Stardrop Saloon, visits the woods west of town in the fall, and the beach during summer.

When it's raining he'll often stay home all day, or visit the Stardrop Saloon for a few hours.

His schedule can deviate if there are specific conditions like season, weather or certain days of the week. Below are his schedule deviations prioritized highest to lowest (for example when it rains that schedule will override all others below it)

Relationships

Sam lives with his mother Jodi and younger brother Vincent. His mother spoils both of them, and claims that neither have ever had to do any chores. He is close to Vincent, and feels responsible for him in his dad's absence. In Spring, Year 2, Sam's father Kent returns and resides in the house with the rest of the family. After marriage, Sam will visit his family weekly to check up on Vincent, though if you speak to him while he's there he'll tell you that he really came to visit for a free lunch.

Sebastian and Abigail are his band mates and close friends, and they often spend time together. When they are hanging out at The Stardrop Saloon, Sebastian is always seen beating Sam at pool, while Abigail watches from the couch.

Dialogue

First Meeting 

General

"The clouds look great this time of year, don't they?" ... "Like scoops of vanilla ice cream floating on blue raspberry sauce... Or maybe I'm just hungry." [Spring]

"Ugh, I stepped in something gross earlier.. and I just bought these shoes."

"Hey, farmer."

"My Dad is a soldier, fighting against the Gotoro Empire. That's why he's not here..." ... "He'll come back someday." ... "...I've heard some terrible things about the Gotoro Empire..."

"Hmm. I just remembered that I was supposed to do something... But I forgot." ... "This happens to me all the time."

"Oh, it's a nice day, isn't it?"

"Hey, how's it going?" ... "I'm hungry." ... "See you later."

"Oh! I just remembered I'm supposed to call my Grandma. Okay, I'm going to put this rubber band on my wrist so I don't forget." ... "I have to make little reminders for myself or else I'll totally forget to do things."

"Hey... something smells good, like pizza."

In His Room

(Upon looking in the trash bin) "Hey, don't look in there!"

At the Saloon

"Hmm.. if I give the cue ball a bit of a top spin, maybe I could..." ... "*Sigh*... I'm not very good."

Flower Dance

(Spring 28, Day Before) "Why couldn't the flower dance be today so I could get work off?"

(If accepted) "You want to be my partner for the flower dance?" ... "Okay. I look forward to it."

(If refused) "Hmm... I dunno. Maybe next year."

Dating

"[Player]. Um... I just wanted to say... You look nice today."

A city in the sea.

Trains.
"Hey, you know what? That sounds perfect. Thanks!"
Choose anything, it'll be terrible anyway.
"Hey man... what the heck is your problem? Sorry I asked."
After Marriage 

Indoor Days

"Phew… I’ll tell you one thing I don’t miss about my old life… working at JojaMart."

"Hey, I made you some instant pancakes. Enjoy." ... "What? I never learned to cook… mom always did that."

"Hey. I know I joke around a lot, but I want you to know that I seriously love you…"

"Do you have big plans for the day?" ... "Oh, not me… I usually decide what to do a few moments beforehand…"

"Um… Maybe I’ll help out on the farm some other day. I feel lazy today." ... "You’re not mad?"

Outdoor Days

"Maybe I should get some off-road wheels for my skateboard. Mayor Lewis can’t touch me out here."

"I always keep an eye on the wide blue sky… you never know when a UFO might go by."

"Hi, [Player]! If I knew more about farm work I’d help you out more. Sorry!" ... "I’ll try and help you with encouraging thoughts."

"Something in the air makes me feel positive… maybe it’s the faint whiff of pizza from Gus’ ovens."

"Wow… you look great today, and the specks of mud just add some extra charm."

Nights

"Hey, you look tired. Let me help you relax tonight, okay? Maybe I’ll give you a massage later."

"My day? Oh… I can hardly remember. I didn’t really do anything of note. Just relaxed and had a good time."

"Hey, sorry I didn’t make the bed. You know I’m sloppy… that’s why you like me, right?"

"The only thing I miss about living at home is Mom’s fish casserole."

"Ready to hit the hay? I actually made the bed for once…"

Rainy Days

"Might be a good day to sit back and jam on the guitar…" ... "Hey, you can relax too if you want."

"Do you think Sebastian and Abigail will ever hook up?" ... "Heh… now that I’m married I’m trying to get everyone else married too."

"Hey, I found one of these rolling around in the back of a drawer." ... "I thought you might be able to use it."

"Aw, man. These cloudy days are kind of a drag…"

"How’d you sleep? The sound of rain really makes me zonk."

Rainy Nights

"Hey, how was your day? I just layed around and read comics most of the day… it was great."

"It was a pretty low-key day for me… colas, frozen pizza, a few hours noodling around on the guitar. I feel relaxed."

"Earlier, I listened to our live recording from that show we played. Remember that? Man, was that sloppy." ... "It made me a little nervous that you were there, I didn’t want to mess up and have you think I was a loser!"

"I hope Vincent’s not too lonely now that I’m gone… I kinda felt responsible for the little guy." ... "But, life’s all about change… right? Kids need to learn that, eventually… Or else adulthood will destroy them."

"Hey, I tossed a couple frozen pizzas into the oven. Here’s yours."

In Bed

"Nnnghh... what is it? Make your own breakfast."

"Nghh... what is it? I'm trying to sleep."

On Halfpipe

"*Sigh*… I’m never gonna land this trick…"

Visiting Family

(Leaving) "I’m gonna visit the family today, okay? I’ll be home in the evening."

(At parent's house) "Don't tell my mom... but I really just came over for a free lunch."

(Returning) "Seeing family is nice, but it’s also kind of depressing in a weird way. Like… our lives are totally separate now, and everything feels more formal than it used to."

First Child

"I’ll change [First Child]’s diaper… don’t worry about it. You’ve got enough on your plate."

"It’s weird, but I really like being a father!"

"I think we should have another kid. Why stop now?"

Second Child

"I woke up early, fed the kids and changed their diapers! We’re all set. You can just focus on raking in that sweet money." ... "I’m just kidding… I didn’t marry you for the money."

"We have to make sure and give [First Child] a lot of attention now that we have [Second Child]. We don’t want any jealousy between them."

"It’s fun to see the babies playing with each other. I think they’re going to be very close."

"I never thought I’d become such a family man, but I’m really satisfied with what we’ve built here. Life is going great."

Good Mood/High Hearts

"Do you ever think of that night we snuck into my room? I do, often…"

"You know, I think I had a feeling we’d be together from the very beginning. There’s just something special between us."

"[Male Player] Wow, you look really handsome today! Did you do something with your hair? / [Female Player] Wow, you look stunning today. Did you do something new with your hair?"

"Be careful out there! I know you go into the caves sometimes… you could be eaten alive in there!"

"Baby, I was just gonna write you a song on the guitar. But now you’re here and I feel relaxed." ... "I mainly feel like playing guitar when I’m lonely."

"Baby, talk to me! I’m always interested to hear about your day."

Luau

Marriage

Sam's addition to the room.

Once married, Sam will move into the farmhouse with you. Like other marriage candidates, he will add his own room off to the side of the bedroom, which resembles his old room. It has his keyboard and guitar, along with a computer and bookshelf. He also builds a half pipe in the backyard to continue practicing skateboarding tricks.

1: At 12 hearts he will sometimes wake up early to help on the farm by:
Water crops
Fill pet bowl
Feed animals
Repair fences
2: He will occasionally cook (breakfast/dinner) for you, adding one random food item to your inventory. Both are frozen/instant foods, which he explains is because he never learned to cook. If your inventory is full, you will not receive the item. Some of the possible items are:
Pancakes (90 Energy, 36 Health, +2 Foraging)
Pizza (150 Energy, 60 Health)

Married Life

Sam spends a lot of time chilling inside of the house, most often in the kitchen. While he will help around the farm sometimes, he can also make the excuse of feeling "lazy today", and says he'll help out another day. He also quits his job at JojaMart, which he's happy about.

Sam is very affectionate, excitedly asking you about your day, or offering to give you a massage after a day of hard work. He likes to refer to you as "baby" or "honey". While he still makes mention of playing his guitar, he tells you at some point that he has no interest in being a musician anymore, and is a "family man" now.

On Mondays and Fridays, he will go into town to visit his family for the day, then spend some time with Sebastian and Abigail at the bar like he would prior to marriage. He expresses a lot of worry for his younger brother Vincent after moving out, and while also mention that Vincent calls every so often. Even so, he says the only thing he really misses about living at his parent's house was his moms fish casserole

Sometimes after visiting his family or the saloon, he will come home in a bad mood, and complain that the house is dirty.
