AIRED:
After Caroline and Logan complete rookie school, Logan is named "Rookie of the Year" and chooses to work at Baywatch. Caroline, still smarting from her break-up with Logan, tells Stephanie she won't be able to work with him. During her first shift, Caroline's distracted by Logan's presence. Despite Stephanie's warning to watch a little girl, Caroline can't keep her eyes off Logan and almost misses a rescue when the girl nearly drowns. After Steph comes to the girl's rescue, a guilty Caroline confesses she missed the rescue because of Logan. Stephanie then decides to transfer Logan to Zuma Beach. Caroline's upset by Stephanie's interference while Logan threatens to sue. Mitch advises Stephanie to not let her personal feelings about Logan interfere with his job ability. Stephanie reconsiders and apologizes to Caroline, saying she'll be her boss when she's on-duty, but her sister off-duty.
Meanwhile, Hobie befriends a new junior lifeguard named Carter, who panics when he learns of an upcoming father/son tournament. Carter lies to the other boys that his father can't make it, but when his father shows up anyway, Carter is embarrassed because his father, Simon, is a dwarf. Matt tries to get through to Carter, saying size shouldn't matter, but an unseen Simon overhears Carter say he is ashamed of his dad. Later, Simon asks for Matt's help in reaching his son. Per Matt's advice, Simon tries getting through to Carter, but to no avail. Simon, who can't swim, then risks his own life to save a little girl and her dog and almost drowns in the process. After Matt and Mitch rescue the man and perform CPR on him, Carter realizes how much he really does love his father after almost losing him. Later, Simon is honored with a medal of valor for his heroic efforts at the junior lifeguard ceremony.moreless

    This was a lovely episode! Very enjoyable, laughable, cryably and everything else! I really enjoyed it! It had a great story line, the hotness of Hobie plus another cute boy that was Hobies friend! What more could a girl ask for? It also had a adorable little doggy that I would love to have! The story line was sab but had a great ending! Im glad that the kid finally excepted his father for who he is and realized what a wonderful guy he was! It lets you know that the size of a person doesnt matter its whats on the inside that counts! Great episode!moreless
