This two-part season opener is long on heart and an innocence reminiscent of early seasons. A USO troupe is forced to lay over in camp. Legendary stripper Brandy Doyle (played by Broadway legend Gwen Verdon) falls for Potter. Klinger endlessly emulates hack comic Fast Freddie Nichols (Danny Dayton). Winchester poo-poos an accordion player (Amanda McBroom), and is chagrined when she reveals herself to be a concert pianist paying the bills (STAR TREK fans might moisten themselves when they recognize her from the TNG episode "Measure of a Man"). One plot line that looks retro but has the whiff of late-series maudlinity, involves a singer (the adorable Gail Edwards) falling for Hawkeye, who rebuffs her advances because he doesn't want to "take advantage". You won't know whether to reach for the barf bag or the tissue.
