Episode Summary

To the Max
April, Lani and J.D. are on patrol in the scarab, when they notice a boat and suddenly see that two men are knocked into the water by a boom. They go there to rescue them, and the third one is knocked into the water as well. The owner of the boat is named Captain Bob. He is very grateful and tells them that he owes them one. They discover that Captain Bob and his sons are diving for sea urchins, and they earn a lot of money by selling the sea urchins. When Lani and April are talking about the sea urchins in the locker room, J.D. tells them that Captain Bob have agreed to take them with him when he goes diving for sea urchins. They get to keep half of what they catch. When Cody finds out about this, he wants to go too. His car doesn´t work anymore and he needs money. Lani decides to tag along even though she has a terrible cold. She can´t dive because her ears won´t be able to equalize the pressure properly. While they are out looking for sea urchins, they hear a call for help from a nearby boat. Apparently, one of the divers from that boat never came back up. He went down to explore a rock formation. Cody and J.D. can´t dive down to rescue him because they will then risk getting the bends. Captain Bob is not a certified diver so that leaves Lani as the only one who can go. But J.D. and Cody won´t let her go. It´s too dangerous because she has a cold. Unfortunately no one else can do it and the diver will die if Lani doesn´t go down and saves him. A few minutes after Lani has gone down, Mitch and April arrive and go down after them. When Lani finds the man in the rock formation, he is totally panicked and out of air. She tries to calm him down and they share her air. As they begin to ascend, Lani suddenly grabs her head and panics in convulsions. Mitch rescues Lani while April helps the other diver. But it´s already too late. Lani´s eardrums have been ruptured and she might have lost her hearing forever. She is devastated and Cody blames himself for the incident. Meanwhile, Mitch is in love with a beautiful woman named Jenny Wade. He has been watching her riding her horse on the beach every morning. He lets Cody fake a citation in order to get her home address. Mitch asks Cody to go down to Jenny and give her a citation. Cody does that and she is surprised at getting cited. She says that her horse is recuperating from an operation and that she is a horse trainer. Then suddenly, Mitch comes up conveniently after Cody has received the information Mitch needs. He tells Cody that they don´t have to cite her after all, just let her off with a warning. Later, Mitch signs Hobie up for classes at Jenny´s riding school. At the end of the riding class, Mitch arrives and asks Jenny out for a picnic. Jenny who is worried about her horse Max, accepts Mitch´s offer. Max was once a champion and now he is recuperating from hock surgery. During their picnic, they see a car go off a cliff. Mitch saves the woman and she does not only turn out to be pregnant, but in labor. Mitch and Jenny are forced to deliver the baby on the beach, before the call car arrives. Later Jenny gets the news from her doctor that Max will never be able race again. She can´t stand the thought of him being cooped up in the stall for the rest of his days, Max needs to move around. Mitch tells Jenny about Carmen Masters and her beautiful horse ranch in Malibu (6.13 Desperate Encounter). Mitch also tells her that they once helped Carmen to save the horses from going to the slaughterhouse. As a favor, Carmen is willing to let Max live on her ranch. Jenny is afraid that it will cost her a fortune, but when Mitch says that it won´t cost her anything, she accepts his offer.moreless
