After an embarrassing incident in lifeguard class, Riley is determined to prove to the world—and himself—that he's straight. Meanwhile, why would Anya lie to Sav about taking self-defense classes after school?
Riley has a crush on the hot lifeguard named Sam, but after getting an erection while watching him give a dummy mouth-to-mouth resuscitation in lifeguard class, Riley is determined to prove to everyone, and himself, that he is straight by trying to sleep with Fiona. After getting rejected by her because she suspects he is gay, he tries to get a new girl at the carnival, but that doesn't go too well. He also begins to show his anger by getting into fights with his lifeguard instructor, Sam, who is also gay.
Meanwhile, Anya lies to Sav about taking self-defense classes after school when she is really doing roleplay in the woods (LARPing), an activity she fears Sav will mock her about it. They get into a fight because he wants to know where she is and she refuses to tell.
At the same time Dave is trying to ask Jenna out, after making the winning shot at the basketball game, he gets confident and asks her out and when they go out he assumes that Jenna is his girlfriend.
