Sweating it Out is the 17th episode of Season 5 on FOX teen soap Beverly Hills, 90210.


On their semester break, Dylan and Brandon take a motorcycle trip through California and they end up being subjected to slave labor by a Native American sheriff for trespassing on a reservation, which helps dissipate the tensions between them over Kelly. Meanwhile, Kelly benefits from attending psychology workshop seminars run by a famous, crippled psychology professor named Patrick Finley. Donna tries to help Ray get over his stage fright on the eve of his debut at the grand opening of the Peach Pit After Dark. Steve spends the weekend moping over his father, Rush, taking over the Peach Pit After Dark club.
