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 Corp to The Pentagon. Rosie is neither grateful as a patient nor as a business owner. Chuckles is as bad with Muldoon as with the Greeks and Turks. Will Rosie's ever be open again? How many Generals does it take to get a promotion for an "outstanding" Padre? Written by
Though he had already appeared on the series as Sergeant Rizzo, G.W. Bailey does not play that character in this episode (likely filmed earlier than the others, though shown later). He is billed in the credits as "The G.I." and clearly he and Major Winchester have never met before since Bailey's character does not know who Winchester is. See more »
Father Mulcahy, as Chaplain, would have started as a Captain, not Lieutenant. See more »
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.
