One thing I like about this episode too, is that at the beginning as Radar is filling out the daily report, he says the date of the episode is 13 June… and with Frank’s birthday being a plot point of this episode, that means Frank and I share the same birthday. I can see it now: the 4077th would be throwing both of us a party, but it’s clear that they’re favoring me, but because it’s for both of us, Frank will try to weasel his way into getting the bigger pieces of cake, and the better presents. :p
I pretty much agree on all counts, and I too found the whole Amazing Radaro tag at the end really out of place as well, but then again, it seems like Season Five had a number of episodes like that…
I’m also surprised that Klinger never thought to (fake) immolate himself sooner; it’s one of his more “clever” schemes to get a discharge, I think, but it was also really clever on Potter’s part to have the water secretly switched out with real gasoline, and Klinger’s reaction was really priceless.
Talk about individual episodes here. Every episode has its own discussion thread and there are also threads for each season.
