The Master and the Gardener's Apprentice
I'm glad that Sam got to have this conversation with Saradoc. I think it did him good. And I am so glad that in canon, Merry does remain Sam's friend even after he becomes the Son of the Hall (and later on, when he becomes the Master of Buckland!)!
If we know anything about our hobbits, it's that they are loyal. We see that with Frodo, but we also see that with one another. Given that Sam and Merry were friends when they were young, they'd stay friends for always.
