|“||“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 an outgoing and energetic young man with a passion for music. He works part-time at JojaMart.
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 on Monday and Wednesday at JojaMart (if it is in business), or at the Museum in the Artifacts and Minerals display (if the Community Center has been restored). He frequents the Stardrop Saloon during spring, goes to the beach during summer, and visits the woods west of town in the fall.
When it's raining he'll often stay home all day, or visit the Stardrop Saloon for a few hours.
On the 11th of Fall, he has an appointment at the clinic.
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)
Rainy day (Option 1)
Birthday (JojaMart open or first day Joja is closed, And not Raining)
Birthday (JojaMart open, And Raining)
Raining - Random choice #1
Raining - Random choice #2
Monday & Wednesday, Community Center Restored
|If the community center is restored, Sam doesn't leave The Farm except on Monday and Friday. On Saturday mornings he spends time doing skateboard tricks on the half-pipe behind the farmhouse.
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 regularly to check up on them.
Sebastian and Abigail are his bandmates 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. He is also friends with Penny, and will dance with her at the Flower Dance if neither is dancing with the player.

Enter Sam's house when he's there.
| Sam and Sebastian are jamming out in Sam's room. Sam tells you he's trying to get a band together, but he's unsure what style of music to play. He asks what music you like.
No matter which style you pick, Sam says that's the style he's been thinking about for the band. He asks Sebastian if he's on board too. Sebastian agrees and Sam thanks you.
In any season except winter, enter the beach on a sunny day between 7am and 3pm. This event only happens in Year 1.
| Sam is watching his brother Vincent play in the sand. Sam says his dad used to take them to the beach on sunny days. Vincent asks if their father will come home. Sam says "Of course". Vincent mentions overhearing people talk about mass military casualties. Sam tells him not to believe them, and Vincent returns to playing. Sam feels bad for getting his brother's hopes up and asks for your opinion.
Sam tells you the band's coming together, and Sebastian really wanted Abigail to be the drummer "for some reason".
Enter Sam's house when he's there.
| Sam is in the kitchen. He says hello. As he's getting you a snack, he drops an egg on the kitchen floor. His mom hears the commotion, walks into the kitchen, and becomes upset about the mess. Sam asks you to tell her what happened.
Jodi thanks you for being honest, and Sam insists he'll clean up the mess.
On any day when it's not raining, enter the town between noon and 4pm.
| Sam is skateboarding and grinding on Emily and Haley's flower box. Lewis catches him and scolds him for it. Sam asks for your opinion.
Sam shows up at your doorstop between 6am and 8am. Only triggers if you've seen his two-heart event.
After receiving a letter from Sam, enter the town on a sunny day between 8pm and midnight.
| You meet Sam outside his house. He says it's cold outside and sneaks you into his room to talk privately. As he admits he's falling for you, his mom knocks on the door. He has you hide in the bed. His mom comes in and asks why he's sweating and red in the face, and Sam says he's just been doing push ups. She wishes him good night and leaves.
You are presented with the option to:
Group Ten-Heart Event
- Articolo principale: Matrimonio
Once married, Sam will move into the farmhouse. Like other marriage candidates, he will add his own room to the right of the bedroom. He'll also set up a half-pipe behind the farmhouse where he'll sometimes go to practice his skateboarding tricks.
On rainy days, Sam may offer you a gift that he found "rolling around in the back of a drawer": Cactus Fruit, Coconut, Earth Crystal, or Geode. On rainy nights, he may offer you Pizza. On nights when Sam stays inside the farmhouse all day, he may offer you instant Pancakes, explaining that he never learned to cook.
- Sam may randomly request an item at the "Help Wanted" board outside Pierre's General Store. The reward is 3x the item's base value and 150 Friendship points.
Sam's look evolved over the years the game was in development. Here's a timeline showing how ConcernedApe's art and Sam's style changed over the years before the game was launched.
- Sam is allergic to pollen, which he mentions during the Egg Festival. He also mentions that his "nose is really happy" during summer due to the typically lower pollen count.
- "Sam" is short for "Samson", which he reveals to the player once they have a good relationship with him. He also states that he doesn't want the player to tell anyone.
- "Sam" is a unisex given name of Hebrew origin, meaning "God has heard". Other meanings are "Sun child" or "bright sun".
- Sam's dialogue is less harsh than other NPCs when the player rummages through garbage cans. Instead of being disgusted, he just asks the player why they're searching through the trash. It still costs the player 25 friendship points, however.
- On Sam's portraits, his undershirt is yellow, but in his sprite, it is red.
- Sam's Old Guitar is a weapon in the game, but is currently unobtainable.
- Sam used to live in Zuzu City. He recalls how bright and loud it is day and night, and how hot it is during summer.
- 1.0: Introduced.
- 1.1: Added skateboarding area behind farmhouse if married.
- 1.3: Added group 10-heart event.
