  • This is the best episode of the series in my view.

    The setup for this episode is great. Potter has everybody riveted as to what will happen but there are still enough naughty shenanigans by everyone that they just can\'t avoid. And it seems that it goes to the extreme too when Margaret\'s tent is missing and Father Mulcahy\'s clothes are stolen. Colonel Tucker is played perfectly by Pat Hingle. The point where Klinger suddenly becomes Cleopatra is just as perfect. When everything is revealed everyone is simply amazed to have been the perfect fool. At the end everybody applaudes Potter and Tucker and it is the ultimate triumph for Potter, especially since Klinger is not yet aware of what it all was.
  • its april fools week and hawkeye, bj, margaret, and winchester really get into it. at first its the dinamic duo working together until all the three boys team up against margaret. when col. tucker comes to inspect them, he pushes them over the top...

    this episode is absolutely hilarious!!!! i could not believe how much i enjoyed it. i actually watched it again after i saw it. and the ending was completely spontanious and i seriously didnt see it coming!!!! i was in as much shock as the characters on the show. this show is recommended for any one needing a good laugh!! :) :) i also liked how hawkeye and bj worked well with winchester and margaret and had fun pranking each other. another great part was klinger, and how he took rizzo's advice and then was the queen of the nile!!!! haha!
