  • Gomer fouls up during a marine exercise, only to be a hero after all.

    Funny opening scene as fellows are sick from being on the ship, and Gomer is cheerful, as he has a garlic pickle and rambles on how good they are for you. Col. Gray informs Sgt. Carter to take 3 men with him on a mission. Gomer volenteers, and Sgt. Carter ignores him. Gomer says "It just ain't fair." Funny scene as then Sgt. Carter is informed of another mission, where the other men will have to deal with explosives. If not done right, the ship could explode. Sgt. Carter decides to take Gomer with him on the mission Gomer volenteered for, since explosives are not involved. Gomer accidently sinks the raft a couple of times. Sgt. Carter keeps telling Pyle "don't talk".Then Sgt. Carter tries to leave without Gomer, and Gomer jumps into the raft, causing it to sink a third time! Hilarious! Sgt.Carter says "where did I fail." Gomer is taken off the mission. Then the Chief Petty Officer gives Gomer a message from the "high command." It is just a set up to send Gomer back to Sgt. Carter. When Sgt. Carter sends Pyle back, while swimming Gomer runs into the enemy submarine! So Gomer is the hero, after all. I thought this was a great episode. Classic exchanges between Gomer and Sgt. Carter.
