Further details

Josh gets invited to a pool party... but he can't swim. This could be detrimental to his pursuit of love because no one is impressed by paddling.

(Un)luckily for Josh, however, Geoff thinks he can teach him in time. Meanwhile, after a date with Owen's friend, Kate receives an unflattering critique of her kissing technique.


Additional material was written by the cast.
