General Information
Nickname: Flevans
Intimacy Level: Friends

The Rory-Sam Relationship, most commonly known as Flevans, Flanevans or Sory, is the short-term friendship between Rory Flanagan and Sam Evans.

In Extraordinary Merry Christmas, Sam watches Rory sing Blue Christmas and comforts him, telling him that it's all right, because Sam and Rory aren't spending time with their family during Christmas. Sue invites New Directions to come to a homeless shelter and to help out the people there. Sam and Rory agree, but when New Directions are offered to be in a Christmas special that will be featured on television, they turn down Sue's offer, which angers her, calling them heartless. Sam agrees with Sue, and when he thinks Rory will agree, Rory says he already has a part in the special. In the special, Rory reads differently from his given script, and later, they join Sam, Quinn, and Sue at the shelter. At the end of the episode, Rachel, Finn, Sam, and Rory are helping out at Salvation Army. After this episode, Rory and Sam continually grow closer and remain as good friends, participating in many performances of New Directions.

Sam praises Rory after he sings Blue Christmas. He also helps Rory when his books fall out of his locker and asks Rory if he would like to spend Christmas with his family, to which Rory agrees, since his family is back in Ireland. Artie wants the Christmas special to be all happy by cutting out the ending to "Frosty the Snowman." Sam argues that Christmas has a sad aspect to it and decides not to take part in the special. He asks Rory to back him up as they both know what it feels like to be away from family during the holidays. Rory says he would better go memorize his lines. Sam looks disappointed as he walks away. At the end of the episode they are seen collecting for the Salvation Army. Rory also asks Sam if he can get him a girlfriend for Valentine's Day. (Extraordinary Merry Christmas)

  • They sometimes look to each other during scenes; like in Extraordinary Merry Christmas when they're singing Do They Know It's Christmas? (Feed The World) and in the locker scene in The Spanish Teacher.
  • Before Rory sings Home, when he says he's grown to love each and every single one of the other club members, the camera turns to Sam first.
  • Towards the end of Blue Christmas, the camera showed Sam giving Rory two thumbs up.
  • When each of them came to McKinley, Finn was their first friend.
