  • Gomer has a problem: he has accepted a date to go to a dance with a movie star and the Colonel's daughter.

    Sgt. Carter tells Pyle he is wanted in the Colonel's office. Gomer is asked to take the Colonel's daughter to a dance. Gomer accepts. Later, Gomer is excited as movie star Gloria Morgan comes to his barracks. Inside his locker is pictures of Ms. Morgan. He tells her he has seen all of her movies. Duke calls Gomer pretending to be Mrs. Morgan, asking Gomer to take her to the dance. He accepts, then realizes he has two dates,so is stressed. Duke confesses he was behind the joke. Turns out, Mrs. Morgan actually wants Gomer to take her to the dance. Funny scene as the Captain calls to inform Gomer of Mrs. Morgan's request. A skeptical Gomer thinks it is another joke by Duke, so Sgt. Carter chews out "Duke", who is actually the Captain! The Captain chews out Sgt. Carter. Gomer accepts the request, then realizes he has two dates again. The following scenes are just Gomer scrambling around trying to please both dates at the dance. Both women are disappointed. Very good scene is next as Gomer explains what happened and expresses his regret. Both women give Gomer a kiss on the cheek, as a stunned Sgt. Carter sees this. I thought this episode had some good scenes, but overall was average.
