Goofs

When arriving late to SSgt. Rizzo's driving class, Pvt. Brown twice refers to Rizzo as "sir." But as a staff sergeant, Rizzo is a non-commissioned officer and does not rate being called "sir." Pvt. Brown should have referred to Rizzo as either "Sergeant" or just "Sarge." See more »

Quotes

Captain B.J. Hunnicut: And you! Tell me you know what it feels like to have your child grow up without parents. What it feels like to even have a child.
Major Margaret Houlihan: How *dare* you stand there and act like your brand of suffering is worse than anybody else's. That's the only way you can justify treating us like dirt.

"Driving" Potter Crazy; BJ Sad Again
26 April 2015 | by See all my reviews

There are two plots. Potter got a speeding ticket and is required to take a remedial driving course. He has to be tutored by Rizzo which is a real comedown. Rizzo tries everything to get Potter to just 86 the whole thing, but he doesn't feel this is honorable. The second plot has to do with BJ getting a letter from his wife. She is taking a job as a cocktail waitress and suddenly he gets all gung ho, wallowing in self pity. He ruins a poker game an then tries to highball a bunch of young soldiers who are playing pinball. He is nasty and mean spirited to the nth degree. Finally, it's up to Margaret to step in. Of course, BJ has been down this road before, feeling so persecuted.
