While helping McHale and the crew make Captain Binghampton believe that he's in New York in 1950, Gruber holds up a newspaper and exclaims. "Those Bums (the Brooklyn Dodgers) blew another one!" In 1950, the Dodgers did, in fact, lose the National League Pennant to the "Whiz Kid" Philadelphia Phillies - one year before the New York Giants and Bobby Thompson beat them with the famous "Shot Heard Round the World".

The ruse seemed a bit overboard.
21 November 2014 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

In this episode, General Williams from the Judge Advocate center is coming to talk with Binghamton about all the charges that have have been made against McHale over the years. General William advises that either McHale and his crew are criminals or the Captain is making false charges, he is coming to town to check out the facts.

Binghamton is looking for anything to give the General. He comes across a tape recorder that belongs to Parker. It seems that Parker was recording some of the guys and they were talking about all the big schemes they had made against Binghamton over the last few months. Binghamton finds the recorder and now has the evidence needed to start a court-martial against the crew of the 73.

But when a potted-plant hits Binghamton in the head making his woozy, McHale thinks of a plan where they can get the recorder back. The plan includes making Binghamton think the war is over and he is at a reunion of war vets. But when General Williams shows up during the execution of the plan, things may get even worse.

The show was well performed by the actors but trying to get the viewer to believe the action was a bit more controversial. The object of the ruse was to try to get to the tape recorder, this action seemed to go well overboard. Not to say that this was a poor show, it just did not live up to exactly what we expect from the last few episodes. Anyway, it did give us enough interest to get through the show but little else. Just a nice watch.

Note- Last time we will see Peggy Mondo in the series. Even though she never got her dues, she was always good on screen.
