Swept Away
AIRED:
A little boy named Tanner hangs around Mitch´s tower all day. He even imitates Mitch´s moves. When Mitch gets a call about a missing boy, he knows that Tanner is the one. His father is furious when he arrives and he slaps Tanner before he drags him of the beach. Mitch and Alex are very shocked about this but there´s nothing they can do. The next day, Tanner is on the beach again claiming that his father gave him permission to do it. Mitch suggests that Junior Lifeguards would be a good idea for Tanner. Later, Mitch gives Tanner a ride home. It turns out that Tanner lives in a dirty dilapidated mobile home in Venice. It gets even worse when Blake refuses to sign any stupid piece of paper about Junior Lifeguards. However, the next morning Tanner arrives to Junior Lifeguards with the piece of paper signed and everything. But he refuses to take his shirt off. But afterwards, Tanner starts shivering and Mitch tells him to change his t-shirt. Mitch is then shocked to discover bruises on Tanner´s back. When Blake never arrives to pick him up, Mitch brings Tanner home for dinner. It turns out that Blake has spent the night in prison. The next day, when the Junior Lifeguards are on a trip in a bus, Jessie who is driving has to avoid a head-on collision. The bus then plunges into Bologna Creek. The people in the bus have to be rescued by the lifeguards including, Alex, J.D. and Newmie. When they arrive back to headquarters, they meet a furious Blake who drags Tanner away again. Alex hasn´t had time to call social services, so there´s nothing they can do. When Mitch brings a woman from the social services to Tanner and Blake´s home in Venice, he discovers that they have moved. Also, Jessie tells another lifeguard named Kristi that she has a crush on J.D. When she goes to visit him in his and Cody´s apartment, they share a passionate kiss. Alex wants to become a contestant in Jeopardy. She makes it. Later when she has to rescue Alex Trebek, the host of Jeopardy, she knows that she will never get the chance to compete in Jeopardy. Jeopardy has a rule. The contestants are not allowed to know anyone on the Jeopardy staff. Alex Trebek feels sorry for her and gives her a lifetime supply of Jeopardy merchandise.moreless
