Storyline

Mike Belden gets to spend some time with the Ricks family, after his mother remarries and heads out for a honeymoon. As a city boy he struggles to adapt to the lifestyle of the Florida Keys. He is concerned about his mother remarrying and seems on a path of self destruction, first crashing a speedboat then disobeying diving instructions. Ultimately he talks Sandy into diving a dangerous wreck, where they become trapped and only the quick thinking flipper alerts Sandy's father and the boys are saved just as their air runs out Written by glen_chapman <chapman_glen@yahoo.com>

City slicker meets country lover - Bayside style!

This episode focuses more on Sandy then Bud. Sandy gets in a fight with a family friend who Porter agreed to watch while his mother and her new husband go away. The boy has a lot of hurt feelings - upset that his mother replaced his father so quickly. He's a no it all who doesn't believe in following the rules.

I think that his influence on Sandy is what got Porter the most worked up. He kept Sandy out all day instead of doing his chores (and besides a bit of a talking to, Sandy wasn't punished for this), he wrecks a friend's boat, then he talks Sandy into going out on a dive after Porter told them not to. They find themselves in a lot of trouble underwater.

Another good episode, though nothing original really in this story. Just bayside version...
