Colonel Sherman T. Potter: Klinger, if I got rid of all the crazies in this camp, I'd be the loneliest man in Korea.
Corporal Maxwell Q. Klinger: I'm not coming down, sir.
Colonel Sherman T. Potter: In that case, I have just one piece of advice for you. When you're walking guard duty tonight, take very tiny steps.

There are two plots at work here. The principle one involves a chopper pilot who has young Korean boys scrounging war souvenirs for him. He turns them into objects: watch bands, cigarette lighters, earrings, necklaces, etc. The sad thing is that these kids end up in mine fields and other dangerous places because they need the money so badly. No one seems to be able to stop this because the Army has no regulation against it. Meanwhile, Klinger's latest adventure in the quest for a Section 8 is to pole sit on a platform, high above the camp. Potter reveals if he can spend four full days he will break a record. There is a moral to this tale having to do with using your privileges to do good, even if it may be morally weak.
