Whitewater is the first episode of the eighth and final season. It originally aired on ABC in the United States on September 22, 1998.
Note: From this episode onwards, Mark no longer has his gothic personality and regains his former personality of an innocent, misguided and underestimated type character.
Will this be Tim's last birthday? Jill's surprise birthday gift of a river rafting adventure trip with Heidi, Al and Wilson, to Kernville, California goes against Tim's well thought out plans of watching a NASCAR race in Indianapolis, which he had VIP tickets for. Meanwhile, Mark, who has completely abandoned his darker ways, and Brad make a hard-to-get-out soda stain on the couch after arguing over Tim's new massage recliner.
