  • Gomer agrees to take Duke to see his girlfriend while on an errand for Sgt. Carter, and ends up in Rome!

    Sgt. Carter Is instructed by Col. Gray that a Congressman is coming in and someone needs to pick up his favorite box of cigars. Sgt. Carter can't, and Gomer is the only one left. Sgt. Carter says "I couldn't be that unlucky." Duke finds out Gomer gets to take the jeep, and begs Gomer to take him to see his girlfriend briefly. Gomer is reluctant to stray off course, but agrees to it. They see Sgt. Carter and the congressman at the airport, and hide out in the airplane. The best scene is next, as the plane takes off. They think they are heading to San Francisco, but then the announcement: destination-Rome! Sgt. Carter is upset. From there it is just a matter of Gomer finding his way back. Gomer settles on buying a different brand of cigars at an airport in Rome. The congressman loves the brand! Hilarious scene as Sgt. Carter tells Gomer he will have to go back to the same place the next time the congressman comes in. I thought this was a good episode.
