Storyline

When Matt finds a girl who's as obsessed with plants as he is with fish, romance blossoms, but a sudden misfortune in a science competition, in which they both compete, sets one to doubt the integrity of the other. In advising them on getting back together, Nick sets off to repair an old misgiving of his own that shattered his long-time friendship with a fellow Marine. Written by statmanjeff
