Episode Summary

Full Throttle
Neely asks Mitch if he knows a cheap hotel she and Ashley can stay in while her apartment is being renovated. He tells her that they can move in with him and Hobie. Because Neely works as a waitress in a bar during the evenings, Mitch gets to baby-sit Ashley a lot and he get more and more attached to her as time goes by. When Neely is fired from her job by her boss Tommy, and learns that her land-lord ripped her off, Mitch tells Neely that she and Ashley can move in with him permanently and Neely accepts the offer. Ashley plays poker with Mitch, Newmie and Cody and she wins. Newmie and Cody compete against April and Jordan in a friendly scarab race. But when the women lose, they want a rematch. They compete in a water skills competition including wave-runners, windsurfing and paddle-boarding. But despite a good effort from the girls, Cody and Newmie end up winning the competition. Also, two rich local hotshots named Spenser and Cooper, wants to challenge Cody to a big charity race to benefit Camp Baywatch. But Newmie talks him out of it. Spenser and Cooper´s state-of-the-art boat is too fast for them. But when they run into them again this time driving Mitch´s private scarab, Cody can´t resist the challenge. Later Cody and Newmie challenge the girls for a rescue. But Cody gets tangled in the tether of his rescue can and injures his knee. When Cody tells Mitch about the challenge, Mitch gets angry and goes to Spenser and Cooper to call the whole thing off. But instead, he and Newmie enter the competition against Spenser and Cooper. What they don´t know is that Spenser and Cooper have hot-wired their boat for extra speed. However during the race, their jury-rigged electrical wiring blows, fusing the controls. Spenser and Cooper jump into the water, but the boat keeps on racing at high speed towards an oil platform. But Mitch and Newmie come to the rescue and Mitch is able to jump onto the boat and he stuffs rags into the intake valve. The boat stops just in front of the platform. A major disaster has now been avoided.moreless
