When the Captain's father (Phil Silvers) comes on board, he drives his son nuts, so the Captain asks the crew to run interference. The Captain's father then meets one of the crew's staff (Judy Canova) and takes a liking to her. A passenger (Gary Burghoff) finds himself trapped in his cabin, when an attack dog comes on board, gets in his cabin and won't let him out. And three women (Jane Curtin, Joanna Kerns and Susan Heldfond), who were college friends, decide to play a game wherein they get a guy to say a word and, if he says it, they should hook up with that guy. And one of them (Curtin), gets the ship's repairman (Vincent Baggetta) to say it. Written by
