The recruitment officer leaves to file Klinger's reenlistment paperwork, but the process is seemingly incomplete until Colonel Potter has Klinger swear an oath. The oath is actually the Presidential Oath of Office, which somehow undoes the entire process, despite the paperwork already being filed. See more »
Klinger gets a Dear Max letter from someone he is no longer married to anyway. His ex- wife, Laverne, has divorced her second husband and has now hooked up with Max's best friend (former that is). Who should show up in camp but a recruiting officer, played by Barry Corbin. Of course, Klinger is totally in the dumps and has given up on life. All he can think about is the wife he doesn't have anyway. And, of course, he decides to fall for the recruiting line where the army is his best friend. He re-enlists and Potter swears him in. For six years, yet. There is also a subplot about a male nurse who gets no respect or rank. In an interesting twist, he went into the army as a private, while women go in as second lieutenants. Of course, there are some interesting twists that we need to wait for. A pretty decent offering.
