Tod and Linc are in Tierra Verde, Florida working for a housing tract developer. Due to a boating incident they meet "two little rich girls". Competitors since childhood, they make full use of Tod and Linc in their latest contest-a powerboat race. Linc takes "his girl" seriously and Tod can clearly see what it will lead to. Written by
When Linc refuses to sit with Tod and Midge, Tod tells him that even "President Lincoln sat down to sign the 13th Amendment." This is wrong for two reasons. First, Lincoln was already dead from assassination when the 13th Amendment was completed. It's likely Tod was really thinking about the Emancipation Proclamation, since they both deal with the abolition of slavery. The second reason Tod was wrong is the fact Presidents have nothing to do with Constitutional Amendments. Unlike ordinary Congressional acts, a constitutional amendment does not require presidential signature for passage. Once a proposed amendment is passed by the Congress it goes out directly to be ratified by the states. This prevents the President from blocking a proposed Amendment. See more »
What's your name?
Have you ever been on a couch, Edgar? I mean, have you ever had your psyche probed?
Well, we're not allowed to date the guests. ma'am.
People don't fall in love anymore, Edgar. They form a mutually compulsive complementary inter-relationship of egos.

This is a pretty weak effort after some good episodes. Janice Rule returns for the third time, ("A Lance of Straw" and "Once to Every Man") again as a woman too strong to get a man. She's a multi- millionaire heiress who has an on-going rivalry with her younger sister, played by Susan Kohner, in one of her last appearances before she retired from the business after a promising start to raise a family. She, too, had played a similar role in a prior episode, ("The Quick and the Dead" from the first season). That one was about race cars. This one is about speed boats.
The boys encounter them in a "cute meet" when Susan's speedboat cuts their fishing line and overturns their boat. There's a big race coming up, (Hosted by Guy Lombardo, of all people), and each sister has a boat in the race. They hire the boys to race their boats, (Why? Janice is not a racer but Susan appears to be one from the cute meet). Tod and Linc get very competitive with each other. I won't say who wins but Linc realizes that he can't have a worthwhile relationship with Janice. Tod, as usual, had no such illusions, (he probably remembered her from the prior episodes). This show actually reduces itself to utilizing comic relief from the world's most unfunny comedian, (Sammy Shore) and a series of scenes where characters either gets drenched by passing speedboats or gets shoved into the water.
