  • Binghampton tries to Sing,but does Act.

    Another favorite episode.The Mayor,and Rosa yearning to get their Opera House opened,gets McHale's crew to agree to rebuild the Opera house.The condition being that Virgil gets to sing the lead with Rosa,and the crew will receive 50% of the sales of ticket sales.The Crew goes to get the building material when they get caught,and thrown in to the Brig.To get his men out of the Brig,McHale with the help of the Mayor,and Rosa convince Binghampton to sing the lead in the Opera.They convince him(even though his singing is awful),and he agrees to release Mchales Crew from the Brig.Seemingly their troubles are over,until they find out that Binghampton has invited General Bronson,and his Aides to the Operas Premiere.McHale,and Crew have to come up with a plan to prevent the General from hearing Binghampton sing.They come up with a brilliant plan.They even manage to unexpectantly entertain the audience with laughter,the General included.Even Binghampton becomes an expectant success.
