This was actually a humorous show

In this enjoyable episode, Binghamton is dictating a letter to his mother for Mother's Day which is just a few days away. Ensign Parker gets hold of the Dictaphone and plays around with the controls and records a tape asking if they can send mothers to the island for Mother's Day. The secretary of the Navy gets a copy of the dictation and thinks it is a good idea. So he will send three mothers of PT 73 to the island for the day and will be a boost to the war effort.

The bad things is that on Mother's Day, McHale and his group were planning a casino night for the entire base. Now with the mother's arriving it is going to throw a wrench into their plans which all the other sailors are anticipating. But with the Under Secretary on this island McHale is going to have to play it safe.

My favorite part of the entire show was when Binghamton wanted to be photographed with all the mothers and even made a point of pushing McHale out of the camera sight so he could take all the glory. At one point McHale was not even standing near but Binghamton still made an attempt to push him before the picture was taken. That was comic gold. This was an entertaining story that was enjoyable to watch.
