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...
