  • Gomer is asked to escort the colonel's daughter to a dance.

    5 marines turn down the colonel's request to escort his daughter to a dance. When Sgt. Carter explains the kind of guy Pyle is, the colonel decides he sounds perfect. Pyle is upset about being chosen, asking "why me". The colonel's wife is worried. Gomer arrives to pick up Jane with flowers. The best scene was Gomer rambling on about saving for 6 years to buy his mother a ceptic tank for her birthday, and then the colonel saying to his wife how a guy who does that can't be all bad. Gomer dances wild with Jane, as her mother is horrified. Gomer impresses Jane playing his guitar on the porch. She kises Gomer on the cheek, upsetting her mom, but the colonel is the voice of reason. I rate this episode as well below average, as it was a predictable plot lacking in funny scenes.
