  • Gomer looses his friend's wedding ring the day before the ceremony, and the search is on.

    Gomer and his friend Pvt. Purcell keep losing Purcell's wedding ring. Mildly funny scenes, as one can identify with the panic of loosing something important. Gomer figures he lost it while making Bread, so he thinks it must be in one of 600 loafs of Bread! Both Sqt.Hacker and Sgt.Carter are not sympathetic, yelling "out" to Gomer and Purcell. Sgt.Carter reconsiders, and decides to help out. A mine detector is used, but the ring is not in any of the loafs. It detects the ring in Gomer's pocket, as Gomer then remembers he used his hanky to wipe off bread dough, and so the ring must have come off in the hanky. At the Wedding, Best Man Gomer can't get the ring off his finger. I found this episode to be unoriginal. The plot was predictable, and their was a lack of funny scenes.
