- "Wow, it never fails to amaze me how kind and thoughtful folks can be... I know! I'll return your kindness with some of my own!"
- — Sam
Sam strives for equanimity, and finds it to be the most important thing in life. He is also a proud member of the Joyous Volunteer Association of Windfall Island.
After Zunari puts up his first product for display, Sam appears on the Sea View Bench right in front of his shop. When Link begins the trading event with Zunari and the Traveling Merchants, Sam tells him that he and the rest of the Joyous Volunteer Association have installed Joy Pedestals around the island, so people can set up decorations to spread joy. After Link puts a decoration in fourteen of the pedestals on the island, he talks to Sam; proud of the work that Link has done to spread happiness, Sam gives Link a Piece of Heart.
