Internationally famous gymnast Elayna Crasna is only going to be in America one more day and she is anxious to meet an American boy before she leaves. However, her hard-driving coach, Helga Novak, insists she prepare for her meet the next day. Elayna's determined to take time out for herself though, and when Helga isn't looking, she sneaks off.
Elayna is spotted in the park by Leo and Zac who are taking a stroll. She spots a cruising police car and embraces a pleasantly surprised Zac. She steps back once the car is gone and tells them she's just a tourist. Elayna complains of fatigue and Zac takes her to Max's house so she can rest for a while. While she's resting, Alex pops in to tell them they're in big trouble. The police and FBI are looking for their little underaged alien guest and they have to turn her in. Elayna listens in on the conversation and unseen, runs out the back door where she is spotted by a passing police unit and taken back.
Zac and Alex pressure Max into doing something to help the poor gymnast enjoy her last night in a foreign country. He and Zac pose as coach and gymnast and go to the gym where Elayna is practicing. Helga observes and is impressed to see Zac perform such an incredible routine. After the routine, Helga approaches Max as Zac walks over to Elayna, anxious to spend a few minutes with her. Max tells Helga his "grandson" needs a little confidence. Hating to see such talent go to waste, she agrees to let Elayna spend an hour with Zac that evening.
Zac arrives as planned to find a discouraged Elayna. An hour isn't much time to experience all she's missed. Zac tells her to close her eyes and use her imagination...imagining that they are eating at the finest restaurant in San Francisco. By magic, the room is transformed into an elegant dining room and they are clad in formal attire. Later, Zac gives Elayna a conch shell as they walk along the beach. At the end of their hour, and magnificent evening, Zac and Elayna bid each other farewell, knowing they will always remember their evening together. Elayna wins two gold medals the next day and as Merlin and Zac watch the news, Elayna says anytime she wants to return to the city, she will put the conch shell to her ear and remember the city with love.
