  • It's the time of year for Camp to play Capture the Flag. Unfortunately Donkey Lips despite his potential has failed basic training all because he can't do the tires. He's booted to defense, but when the team is in trouble he's their last hope.

    This is the funnest and greatest episode in the entire series. The funnest spoof on the army and war films since "Stripes." It obviously was paroding and homeraging lots of war films. The whole episode is formated like a war film, from the basic training (Homerage to The Dirty Dozen, Full Metal Jacket, or others that feature this.)down to the war itself. But the parody has a heart because of the character Donkey Lips. He doesn't look like much from his weight and history of clumsyness. But we witness from his hidden talent of survivalist and millitary statigist knowlege and determination that he is the team's greatest hero, they just don't know it until he comes though in the end. It just goes to show you don't have to have mussle to be a hero, if you do your job well to the best of your ability despite weeknesses then you can win. But the funnest moment in the episode (which was an homerage to Platoon) was when Budnick abandons the team to get the flag himself only to fail miserably by geting hit by taking heavy fire by a barage of water ballons, while hearing dramtic music in the background and going down as if he has died.
