While watching this episode, I tried hard to have an open mind and really get into the program. The last few shows have not been up to standards and perhaps it is me that was getting tired of the series. So I sat down to watch this show totally open to the experience of production. But after watching this episode only one word comes to mind, "Next".

While PT 73 is stopped at New Caledonia, when a French girl, Babbette Bergerac, stows-away while the boat returns to base. Babbette is the daughter of a French man that the US Navy is in negotiations to buy land for a supply post. They do not want to make any waves in the deal as it moves forward. But having the daughter on the base may lead to trouble for the Navy.

Binghamton finds out about the girl on the base and is set to court-martial the 73 crew. It will not be until Ensign Parker dresses up like the French landowner, Charles Bergeac, and demands that his daughter is returned and the matter of the court-martial be ended. But right behind them the Admiral is bring the real Charles Bergeac as they negotiate the land purchase. Binghamton just may have lost the deal for the Navy.

The story just was not that interesting. A strong willed French girl makes her way to the base and all she does is yell and stomp on the Captain's foot does not make for great entertainment. But when they let her drive the PT boat and fire a torpedo it sums up the show very nicely-- "Unbelievable". And that is exactly what we have here, an uninteresting set of events.
