Storyline

A peddler wheels his cart into camp. Klinger buys from him a goat to get rich selling milk. B.J. shows interest in a blue vase, but Charles outbids him greatly. Meanwhile, much to his chagrin, Hawkeye is paymaster again. But just as he gets the pay rolling, wounded arrive. Hawkeye tells Klinger to keep an eye on the money while he's in surgery. Unfortunately, Klinger left the money in his office alone with the goat...Hawk and Klinger return to find the money gone. It had been eaten. No way would I-CORPS believe that. Worse yet, he still had a ton of angry, unpaid staff members. Meanwhile, Charles, who hasn't yet been paid, can't afford the vase he wants, however Rizzo agrees to loan him the money, with a small 100% interest attached. Will Charles ever get himself out of debt? Will Hawkeye go down for the disappearance of the money, or will his name be cleared by sheer luck or help from a very hungry kid?

Trivia

The $22,000 that Pierce is on the hook for would be equivalent to about $203,000 in 2015. See more »

Goofs

During the investigation into the missing payroll, neither the investigator, nor Hawkeye, Colonel Potter or Klinger ever mention the physical evidence such as the gnawed wooden footlocker or the half-eaten payroll satchel, despite the fact that damage can't be easily faked. Plus, Hawkeye and Klinger actually saw the goat with his head in the footlocker, despite the script's assertion there were no eyewitnesses. See more »

Quotes

Hawkeye: Klinger, did you put the money in the safe?
Cpl. Maxwell Klinger: I didn't want to bother the colonel in triage. He's the only one who knows the combination.
Col. Sherman Potter: And no one's going to find out. It's Mildred's measurements.

Not a Goat of a Chance
1 May 2015 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Klinger buys a goat from a peddler, hoping to make money selling fresh milk. B. J. spots a vase on the same cart and wants to buy it. Charles realizes it is a very rare piece of pottery and tries to lowball him, but he needs cash to do so. Rizzo lends him the money and the usurious motor pool sergeant owns Charles because of a strange event. Hawkeye has been designated paymaster. When the monthly payments are being made, surgery calls. Klinger takes the money, but the goat gets it and eats it. Soon the Army comes calling, and Pierce is going to owe them over 20,000 dollars. It takes some chicanery to get it to work, but, of course, where there's a will there's a way.
