  • Gomer tips his hat to a female Captain, who is not pleased.

    6.2
    Instead of saluting a female Captain, Gomer tips his hat to her. This upsets her. She wants Gomer to report to her for a week for extra duties. She is given the nickname "Captain Ironpants" by others, and Gomer defends her, calling Duke "crude" for what he says about her. Gomer does thoughtful things, like holding a chair out for her, and giving her flowers. Thanks to Gomer's encouragement, the Captain eventually softens, and becomes more lady like, wearing perfume and makeup. This episode lacks a lot of funny scenes. It is a really sweet episode, as Gomer's kindness to "Captain Ironpants" shines through.
