Storyline

A woman Naval aviator feels displeased while enduring the indignities as a polliwog during a traditional ceremony while crossing the equator; she then files a charge of sexual harassment against the CAG, claiming that her treatment as a polliwog was one part of a series of harassment of her by him. Harm, Mac, and Bud investigate. The CAG denies that he has taken part in any such harassment, and he explains in detail that he grounded the complainant because she's a substandard pilot who does not cut the mustard but does blame everyone and everything except herself. A congresswoman intervenes and visits the ship. The tragic climax makes clear who was right. Bud meets Ens. Harriet Sims. Written by DocRushing

Trivia

The plot in this one is just barely possible. What happens when a naval ship crosses the equator is, and has been, well documented in pictures, movies and other media long before JAG went on the air. In addition, every wog has the right to refuse the initiation. See more »

Goofs

When Bud points out that Mac is wearing heels and they might be on problem with the kneeknockers on the O-4 Level, he is wrong. There are no kneeknockers on the O-4 Level as that is the flight deck and the lowest level on the inside of the island. The kneeknockers are on the O-3 Level. Actually, the heels would be more likely to be a problem when going down ladders. See more »

Captain Thomas Boone: That it does.
Maj. Sarah 'Mac' MacKenzie: Would you mind telling me what those acronyms mean?
Captain Thomas Boone: OSCB, Over Shot Came Back. EGAR, Eased Gun At Ramp.
Maj. Sarah 'Mac' MacKenzie: What about, uh... DNKH?
Captain Thomas Boone: That's the technical one, Major. Damn Near Killed Herself.

Why they didn't just lynched her!
10 July 2009 | by (Cyprus) – See all my reviews

I disliked the episode because of the manner in which "the villain" Lieutenant Isaacs is portrayed and treated.

It's obvious that she was not qualified to be there and not being the sharpest knife in the drawer, HOWEVER that meant that she needed more support and some understanding by her superiors - make it easier for her to leave with some dignity instead of chasing her away! Also, she had every right to oppose the "unwritten law" recruitment process. Why this episode makes it appear that processes like this should go on forever? Then in the film "A Few Good Men" the "Code Red" would be legit and everyone get away for practicing it...

Instead of some kind of support, everyone are either patronizing or being openly against her. The fact that at the end of the episode she dies promotes the idea that people that are unpopular or different in any kind should just die in order to make it easier for everyone else. That is pure racism. She was the weakest character there and she should been more supported instead of presented more like a caricature.
