Klinger says that McFarland just missed making the 100 yard dash team for the American Olympic team by a tenth of a second. In the 100 yard dash a tenth of a second is a very substantial difference in times. See more »
Hello, boys, how are you feeling? And how about you, Palmer, you nice and comfy?
Oh that's good. I certainly wouldn't want it bothering you that you almost cost three men their lives.
Bu-b-b-b-but I-I had no way of knowing that b-b-bedrock w-w-was unstable.
Hell, I should've known better than to give any kind of responsibility to a dummy.
Well fat 'lotta good that d-d-d-does.
Excuse me, Captain Sweeney, may I talk to you for just a moment please?

This plot is really overused in this series. Father Mulcahy likes to run. He is not fast nor is he gifted athletically, but it helps him blow off steam. When the 4077 finds out that a world class sprinter is joining them, Klinger takes it upon himself to set up some bets with the Marines (a constant annoyance). Unfortunately, it isn't the famous runner; it's his father who bears the same name. They are now in trouble and Klinger's butt is now grass. The Father only agrees to run if the marine engineers build a roof for the orphanage (these unseen orphans are really one of the most interesting aspects of this show). Anyway, Mulcahy must run against a tall toned athlete. The second plot has to do with a young soldier who works for the corps of engineers. He and his peers have been injured when a wall fell. It seems this poor guy is treated as if he is an idiot because he stutters. Charles is incensed by their treatment and goes out of his way for this young man. We find out later that there is a serious reason.
