Steve, one of Andrea Thomas' students is a showoff,
taking dangerous chances without thinking about the consequences.
First, he climbs up a tall ladder to hang a sign by himself instead
of waiting for help, and ends up dangling off the edge of the
building, hanging on for dear life. Andrea sees his predicament
and turns into Isis, soaring to the rescue. Instead of gratitude,
Steve is upset and feels shamed for not being able to get down
himself. Isis tells him there's no shame in asking for help and
that everyone needs help sometime. Her advice has fallen on deaf
Andrea and Rick take the students on the school's
Science Club Expedition. Steve again feels inadequate for not
being able to help Cindy when she needs assistance and storms
off into the woods feeling inadequate again.
Andrea goes after Steve and as she observes him
discovers he has a knack for ornithology and tries to get him
to focus his direction on that, instead of doing things without
really thinking. With Andrea's thoughtful words of advice, Steve
begins to feel better about himself.
Later, two sightseeing groups go their separate
ways, Andrea in one, Rick in the other. On the way back to camp,
Andrea finds out that an escaped gorilla may be headed over to
Craggy Glenn where Rick's group is.
Rick and Cindy's group runs into a cave to seek
shelter from a landslide but become trapped inside. They soon
discover that they are not alone: the gorilla is inside with
them, and he sounds angry!
Changing into Isis, Andrea takes flight and comes
to Rick's aid, clearing the debris and calming down the gorilla.
With things back to normal, Isis looks on toward Steve, who has
finally learned to just be himself and do what he loved to do
instead of looking for attention by committing foolish acts.
