Another average production.

Gruber and the crew happen up on some war spoils while engaging the enemy on an island. They take the small collectibles back to the base where they will sell the stuff for some money. But later they learn that the items were stolen by the Japanese from the Manila Museum and are valuable treasures from the Ming Dynasty. The crew is able to get all the items except a clock that they sold to Lt Carpenter.

In the meantime, Admiral Hardesy's daughter is getting married in New Caledonia. The Admiral asks Binghamton if he could send the local minister to perform the ceremony. Binghamton agrees and also sends a present to the bride. It is the clock that Carpenter bought from Gruber. Now a stolen museum treasure, that is being sought all over the Pacific, is going to be given by Binghamton to the Admiral's daughter. Not only does Binghamton have to get the treasure back before the Admiral finds out but also McHale has to get the item back before a court-martial can take place for them selling stolen items.

The episode did have a nice idea but seemed slow in getting to any parts that was interesting. Even when the crew made the trip to New Caledonia the story just did not seem to pick-up any excitement. There was still a few good scenes but the main wedding ceremony was more of a bust that a bang. Another just average production.
