Episode cast overview:
Marine Guard


It has come to light that Cdr. Carolyn Imes had never passed a bar exam. She goes on trial for fraud and conduct unbecoming; Sturgis prosecutes, and Mac and Bud defend. Mac asks Harm for his help in the Imes matter, and she continues her relationship with Webb, who causes the CIA to fire Harm for his involuntary appearance on worldwide TV. Catherine Gale turns up pregnant. The fixed-base operator at Harm's airport has changed hands, and Harm meets Mattie, the 14-year-old daughter of the ostensible new owners. Harm and Mattie find common areas of interest; Mattie hires Harm for crop-dusting. Harm visits Catherine's mother, and he makes an unsuccessful attempt to start a relationship with Catherine. PO Coates works hard to persuade the admiral to take Harm back. The admiral gives an invitation to Harm, and Harm takes Mattie flying and gives her an invitation. Written by DocRushing

Did You Know?


Cmdr. Harmon 'Harm' Rabb, Jr.: You're here, Admiral, because you *need* me. I'm an excellent lawyer. Plus, the officer you chose to replace me is looking at seven years of hard labor.
Adm. Albert Jethro 'A.J.' Chegwidden: All of that is true. If you come back, we'll start fresh. Let me know what you decide.

Just when you thought it couldn't get worse
7 December 2013 | by See all my reviews

My goodness. Do the writers not understand the logic of their own show? In the last episode, Rabb landed a C-130 on a carrier and for some reason there was a news crew there who recorded it. This episode he is being fired because of that news report; his face has been broadcasted on every TV! OK? This makes no sense. For one thing, Rabb has been on TV several times before while either defending, prosecuting, or presiding over very high profile international cases. You'd think that that cow was already out of the barn.

No further case need be made for why that reasoning is absolutely ridiculous. But putting this aside, it still doesn't make sense. Why would it matter that he's well-known? He is a pilot! He flies aircraft that carry CIA assets. It is only in their nonsensical world that this makes sense, where CIA pilots are used as undercover assets because apparently the CIA cannot possibly spare anyone else.

Rabb also seems sad that his office at JAG is no longer his. Turner asks, "Didn't you know?" What? Did Rabb really expect that they would hold his office for him or turn it into a shrine for him? He's been gone for months.

It is also annoying how everyone thinks less of Rabb for being a crop duster. This is rich, coming exclusively from government workers, whose contribution to society is quite ambiguous: indeed, would their jobs exist if not for the fact that they are paid by taxpayers who have to pay them regardless of their desire? In contrast, as a crop duster, he is providing a service for which he is voluntarily paid. All their medals and prestige obscures the fact that they are paid in money taken by force.
