The boat crew trainees learn that after only three days on training they will be given a test to see how much they have digested so far. As soon as their instructors say "test," Jamie starts to ask a lot of questions and really puts an effort into learning everything about sailing. The seven strangers are told that if they pass the test, they will earn their salary for the last few days, which will work out to be about $200 each. Star student Jamie is concerned that Robin is going to fail the test because she has not been showing much interest in the sailing. But Robin comes to Jamie for some study help and Jamie is more than willing to tutor her. It's the night before the test and Cameran, Brad and Randy have not studied and decide to put that off until after they go out and party. Besides, Brad is pretty confident that he already knows the terms that they've been asked to memorize.
The roommates hangout and talk the night away and before they know it, it's 6 a.m. and they've got a test on their sailing skills in just a few short hours. A few of them study and then hit the sack only to be woken up a few hours later by their alarm clock. The roommates cram for the test while they get ready and Cameran goes down to the dock a few hours early to make sure she knows all of the things she had learned over the past couple of days.
On the boat, the housemates are given a multiple choice test and Frankie is confident that her excellent memory will help her ace the test. Brad, on the other hand, claims he knows what each of the terms mean, but he has trouble matching the term to the proper definition on the test. Whatever, Brad. Cameran says at first she is confident answering the questions, but then it starts to go over her head and she begins to get lost.
After they turn in the written part, they each have to take a practical exam. It looks like Brad, Jamie and Jacquese do really well. Cameran has the most difficulty and wonders what the consequences of not passing the test will be. The scores are given on the boat and Frankie and Jamie both learn they got a 95 percent. Jacquese, Randy, and Robin all receive scores in the 80s. Brad learns that he did well on the practical test, but he didn't pass the written test. Cameran didn't pass either and they learn they can take a re-test in a couple days.
Cameran is embarrassed that she didn't pass, while Jacquese is quite happy that he's got some cash to put in his pocket. Cameran calls her dad to tell her she failed and won't get paid until she passes the test. She asks her dad how much is in her checking account and learns she only has $40. She whines, tell him she needs money. "What am I, Wells Fargo?" he twangs.
While the other roommates plan to go out to a movie, Cameran and Brad become study buddies. The next morning the duo heads to the dock, takes the test and both learn they passed with a stellar 99 percent. They are stoked and bring a box of uniforms back to the house for the rest of the boat crew. Apparently not stylish enough for seven trucker-hat-wearing strangers, the roommates try on the baggy shorts and polo shirts and make fun of them.
