  • A tug at your heart episode

    Colonel Gray meets Colonel Matthews at a dinner party. Colonel Matthew's daughter, Margaret, meets Gomer. A good theme is established, as Gomer's friendly, easy going personality is refreshing for Margaret, having been raised in a formal setting. Gomer teaches her Jacks, etc. Their relationship is touching. The funniest scene is when Sgt. Carter, concerned Gomer, as a kitchen helper, will mess up, seeks to find something safe for Gomer to do. He explains for Gomer to just take the chips out on the tray. Colonel Matthew's hand gets drenched in Avacado dip as Gomer brings out the chips. The episode overall wasn't real funny, but the writers didn't seem to try, instead focusing on the relationship between Gomer and Margaret, and that worked.
