The device of the professional traffic accident victim, was used a year earlier in an episode of Adam 12, S4E21, Backup 1-L20. In the Adam 12 episode, MacDonald hits and kills a professional con artist, attempting to fake getting hit by MacDonald's car. See more »
When Radar is first seen he is wearing a light blue cravat. This is inappropriate for a medic. Light blue in the color for the infantry. While Radar is the company clerk; he is a medic. Medics wear maroon cravats. The color used in most medical unit patches and crests is maroon. See more »
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"
