Upset that John has rejected Marilyn's marriage proposal, Jett decides to take out his small boat before Alf has finished its repairs. It's not long before the boat starts taking on water, leaving Jett helpless as the boat finally sinks beneath him.

Treading water, Jett looks towards the distant shore. Struggling to stay afloat, Jett swims towards the pier.

Meanwhile, Marilyn has accepted John's marriage proposal. When they fail to locate Jett, eager to share their happy news, Alf calls to say Jett's boat is missing. Standing at the end of the pier, Marilyn uses a pair of binoculars to locate Jett.

While Alf and John drag a boat out to rescue Jett, Brax dives into the water and begins to freestyle towards Jett. Just as Jett gives up, Brax reaches him and keeps his head above water.
