The Pinball machine BJ is playing is a Gotliebb "Spot-a-card". This game was produced in 1960 well after the korean war. There is another game with this name made in 1943, but that one hasn't flippers. See more »
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 »

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.
