  • Sqt.Carter wants all his men to pass the test to become a Private First Class, and Gomer is the last one who has not passed the test.

    9.0
    Sqt. Carter wants to go on a vacation to Hawii with 100% of his men passing the test to become PFC. The problem is, Gomer is content being a private, and is not interested in the test. He falls asleep during his second attempt. Gomer then learns of Sqt.Carter's plans to go to Hawii, mistakenly thinking he is transferring because Gomer failed his test. Gomer then takes the test a third time and passes. This is a cleverly plotted episode, because Gomer's misunderstanding causes Sqt. Carter's vacation papers to be torn up! Classic reaction from Sqt. Carter. Perhaps the funniest scene was when Gomer, taking the third test, reached in his pocket to look at something, appearing to look at "cheat notes". Then Gomer revealed a picture of Sqt. Carter, his inspiration for passing the test. There were also a couple of well timed "surprise, surprise, surprise" lines to make this episode funny also.moreless
