  • Episode Description
  • Alex asks Mitch if he wants to escort her to her best friend Sam´s wedding. Sam later calls her from New York and tells her that Diane will arrive the next day, but he can´t make it until Friday. He asks Alex if she can take care of Diane until he gets there and she agrees to do it. When Diane arrives, she meets Mitch and falls in love with him. In order to get Diane to stay away from Mitch, Alex tells her that she and Mitch is a couple. She also invites herself and Diane over to Mitch´s place for dinner. Mitch doesn´t like the idea but he and Alex play along to fool Diane. Suddenly Newmie arrives and wonders if Mitch has forgotten their date with the Zimmerman twins. Then Mitch leaves with Newmie and Alex is left alone with Diane. The next day, Sam arrives and tells Alex that Diane has called off the wedding. Meanwhile, Diane tells Mitch that she will give her wedding another try and she and Sam are reunited again. After the wedding, Mitch wonders if Alex just acted while they kissed in his house. She said that she was just acting and before she gets the chance to say anything else, Newmie and the Zimmerman twins arrive in a lifeguard truck and Mitch takes off with them. Meanwhile, Cody´s boat is stolen while he, Newmie and two girls are diving. Cody´s boat is finally found and he is very happy about it and head down to the docks to claim it. Unfortunately for him, only the skeleton remains. All equipment and valuable parts have been stripped. Later another man´s boat is stolen by the thieves and it doesn´t take long before Newmie and Cody arrive in the scarab and together with the man, they go after the thieves. Cody jumps onto the boat and knocks them out and just before the boat is going to be destroyed by a great vessel, the boat runs out of gas. Meanwhile, while Alex is jogging on the beach one morning, she sees a beautiful sandcastle. Chris is also out jogging and sees the sandcastle too. She tells Chris that this must have happened during the night because she worked this tower last night. This continues for a couple of days and everyday when she gets there, a new sandcastle has been built. One day, she sees a little child sleeping right next to the sandcastle. Alex wakes him up and finds out that he has blisters in his face. It turns out that he has a disease called "Xeroderma Pigmentosum". This means that he can never be in the sun. That´s why he was building all those sandcastles during the night. Also, a baby-sitter freaks out when she finds out that the two girls she is baby-sitting, is missing. However, she doesn´t need to be worried very long. The two girls, Tammi and Betsy come back to her. This make Mitch and Alex very happy because then they don´t need to put together a search unit.moreless
