Episode cast overview:
The G.I.
The Greek
John Orchard ...
MP Muldoon
Eileen Saki ...


There is nothing like a good one-two prayer from The Book of Threats. With a lull in the war, Colonel Potter calls in favors to insure Lt. Father Mulcahy's promotion. But somebody lost the good Father's Efficiency Report and his entire file. Chuckles is an inept mediator between Greeks and Turks at Rosie's Bar. Rosie ends up with broken ribs and will be laid up for a week. Margaret suggests the officers keep Rosie's running. Her rules are simple: water down the liquor, collect 30% of the waitresses' tips and be good to Muldoon. When Col. Potter finds out about the lost file, he and Klinger rattle cages from I Corps to The Pentagon. Rosie is neither grateful as a patient nor business owner. Chuckles is as bad with Muldoon as with the Greeks and Turks. Will Rosie's be closed? What does it take to get an "outstanding" Padre promoted to Captain? Written by LA-Lawyer

Studying for the Bar
17 April 2015 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

When a group of Greek soldiers start fighting a Turkish soldier at Rosie's Bar, she gets hurt. Even though they weren't complicit, the officers agree to run her bar (with Charles casting a dissenting vote). Two of the combatants go after each other in the hospital. The other plot has to do with Mulcahy getting passed over again for his Captain's bars. His file gets lost and Potter must tell him the news (although a great effort commences). There are scenes at the bar where the guys aren't all that competent. Charles causes several problems with his pomposity and condescending attitude, including his snubbing an MP who looks out for the bar.
