When Harrigan says something about 'trick or treat' the camera angle changes and now Binghamton is holding the gun with both hands pointing toward Templeton. See more »


Captain Wallace B. Binghamton: [talking about running for congress] I'm not so sure that Harrigan right. I think a war hero would have a better chance of getting elected.
Lt. Elroy Carpenter: Well, Sir. It is your fault that you have never been in a battle? That every time you've seen a German you have to turn tail and run. - -- - Oh! I mean because you were outnumbered, Sir.

In this last episode of the series, a Washington insider, Frank Templeton, is making a visit to Italy to see how the war effort is advancing. Mr Templeton is a political big-wig that advances people where they are elected to office in Congress. And Binghamton is thinking about running for Congress if he can get the backing of Mr Templeton.

But Binghamton is going to need more than just a desk job, he needs to get in on some German action. So he becomes part of PT 73 crew and goes out hunting for Germans to advance his portfolio for Templeton.

This was an entertaining episode that makes a person wonder why they cancelled the series. This last season has been better than season three in the production of the shows and the action of the scripts. But like nearly all good programs, about four years and things start to age. But nevertheless, this show was interesting enough and could still produce funny lines. Just sorry that there will be no more episodes as we bid the entire cast a fond adieu. But will still be a part of the family through reruns.
