best episode ever
19 May 2007 | by (stamford, ct) – See all my reviews

my personal favorite, full of great lines, Frank Burns moments, young John Ritter, Sidney, Pat Morita and of course the first appearance of who would later become known as Colonel Flagg.

As a poker player, I rank this alongside The Sting as my favorite poker scene in a movie or TV show. A steady stream of one liners that still crack me up.

Edward Winter appears as CID man Captain Halloran, his first appearance in the series. He was so good that he would make many later appearances as Col. Flagg, my favorite character in the whole series.

Frank gets to be typical Frank and has many funny moments as well. Just the most total laughs of any episode ever.

"hey, up close you're a guy" "far away too"
