Bud receives a promotion from jaygee to full lieutenant; then Bud Sr. enters in uniform, announces that the Navy has recalled him to active duty to try him at a court-martial (for larceny and wrongful disposition of government property), and he asks Bud to defend him. Harm prosecutes, Bud defends, and Bud Sr. assaults and batters a government witness. Bud proves to be a vigorous and aggressive adversary at trial. Bud and Harriet throw a wetdown party at Murphy's Tavern. Continuing to look after Dar-lin, LCdr. Jordi Parker takes her to the JAG office, and Dar-lin identifies the bad guy from some mug shots; the NCIS people find his fingerprints at Grandma's house. Written by
Did You Know?
In the opening scene, after Harm administers an oath to Bud in connection with his promotion to full lieutenant, Bud removes a dress-blue coat with jaygee stripes and dons instead a coat with lieutenant stripes, bud he does so without changing the marks on the shoulder straps on his shirt from jaygee to lieutenant. Technically he's out of uniform -- by wearing jaygee shoulder marks and lieutenant sleeve stripes at the same time. See more
Lt. Bud Roberts, Jr.
While you are in this building in that uniform, you will address me as "Lieutenant" or "Sir", NOT "son", "Buddy" or "Bud". Is that clear, MASTER CHIEF?
Big Bud Roberts
[through restrained anger
Very clear... sir!
