Parker must then work with McHale and the boys in a complicated plan to try to make Binghamton drop the charges, by making him think he's losing his mind. Written by

We have a different type of script in this episode as the writers actually let Tim Conway do some acting instead of the usual bumbling bit that we are accustom. In turn, it makes the episode much better and kept the viewer interested to the very end of the show.
It begins when Captain Binghamton catches Ensign Parker with his stolen dictating machine. He immediately arrest the Ensign and places him in jail awaiting court-martial proceedings.
McHale has got to think of a way to get his friend out of the brig. So the plan he comes up with is to make Binghamton think he is losing his mind. Everywhere Binghamton goes, he sees Parker. The barber shop, the hospital and even his own Yeoman- Parker is everywhere including in his cell. The Captain may be cracking-up. Then again he may have a good reason when the Admiral comes to visit.
There was actually some thought put into the script which made the story and the show interesting. Most of the time we only get a small idea and they build an entire show around that idea and some goofy antics by the cast. But this episode was well developed and enjoyable. Not the most believable set of events but about what is expected from a comedy sitcom. Good watch.
