Beauties are abundant in this shapely episode.

In this episode, McHale's crew is putting on a beauty show for the army men that is set to raise money. What has happened is that Ensign Parker damaged a local's boat and now the crew has to raise the money or it will be reported to Binghamton. With the tickets sold, local girls ready and the food mysteriously requisitioned for- everything is set.

Meanwhile, Binghamton has just received a new secretary from the female WAVES unit. Ensign Sandra Collins is getting all of Binghamton's paperwork in shape when she runs across the strange requisition from McHale's crew. She reports it to Binghamton where they go out and take back all the food and put a stop to the beauty show.

Ms Collins feels bad that her action got the show axed. She goes over to talk with the crew and thinks of a plan where they can still have the show and it will not violate any code of misconduct. So Collins, Parker and the crew set out on the PT 73 to bring back the items needed to make the show work. But on returning McHale, Binghamton and the Admiral are all waiting to hear the explanation.

This episode actually turned out fairly well. It even had some humorous moments especially when the German sub caught eye of the PT boat. Maura McGiveney does a nice job of playing the female Ensign which made for a better watch than expected. With a script that was new and the nice acting by all involved, this turned out to be a good episode. This is what we expect from the series.
