Harm, Bud, and Josh take part in a weekend tiger cruise (for friends and relatives of Navy members) aboard a frigate in the Gulf of Mexico; Josh sights a raft with people believed to be Cuban refugees. The ship's crew "rescues" them; shortly afterward they reveal themselves as anti-Castro liberators. The terrorists take hostages, take over the ship, and prepare to launch missiles to hit Castro at a public event. Harm and Josh put out the word, and help starts moving. The bad guys launch two missiles, which do not reach their target. The crew regains control of the ship, and Harm, Bud, and Josh return to Washington. Annie makes an announcement to Harm, and, at almost the same instant, Bud gives Harm an announcement and an invitation. Written by

Has Harm ever lied to you?

He's... mislead me.
