Sink or Swim (#6.8)
26 July 2013 | by (Canada) – See all my reviews

Well, I am very glad that I didn't have to know how to swim to graduate my high school, but i really liked this episode's idea. Steve needs to pass the swim test and Carl is teaching it to him. The two of them have a great dynamics, I especially loved the synchronized swimming scene at the end. But so much more was great as well. Like Steve's swimming gear, so nerdy! Just fits him well. And all his swimming in general was hilarity.

The other story is about Rachel taking a dress from the store Harriet works in and when returning find out that it was damaged. Harriet doesn't want to take it back. It was alright, nothing too exciting
