  • Gomer gets conned into signing a contract for dance lessons. Sargeant Carter attempts to get Gomer out of the contract.

    This is a very funny episode. Gomer gets tricked into signing a contract for dance lessons by Fred and Ginger Fay. Sargeant Carter points this out to Pyle right away, and goes to the dance studio to get him out of the contract. Fred refuses to let Gomer out of the contract, which leads to a nose to nose shouting match between Sargeant Carter and Fred. In what would become a repeated, but always funny theme (most notably, the Friendly Freddy episodes), Sergant Carter himself is then conned, this time by signing a dance lesson contract himself! The solution to getting out of the dance lesson contracts is funny: Seargeant Carter enlists his platton to dance Ginger to exhaustion, causing her to quit, which voids the contracts. I rate this episode a near classic.
