  1. I know what you mean about having a theme song stuck in your head. I have no memory of watching this series but somehow I must have because I can sing it by heart (unlike our national anthem).

  2. Things I love about this episode:

    The soundtrack/score on this episode.

    Drinking and smoking with Henry and Radar.

    Playing cards with Ugly John.

    Norte Dame Football love from the Catholic(s).

    High tension. (Our) People under pressure.

    The messed up brilliance of military buracracy.

    More to come…

  3. The thing that I always remember about this episode is the surgeons taking mattresses when they go to diffuse the bomb. Do you really think those matzo-thin mattresses would protect you if you are standing right beside the bomb? Also when they think there is less than two minutes before explosion, why do they run a step and a half and then fall directly in the path of the bomb?

    The Army-Navy game is brought up again in a Winchester episode. Klinger is taking a test for West Point and he says “I think we have a wonderful chance of defeating Navy this year.” When he fails the test he starts wearing a sailor hat and reverses his statement.

  4. This episode is one of my favorites from this era. It was so well done, I somehow thought it must have been in a later season. That’s just incredible, and a tip of the cap to McLean for coming up with the concept!

    “… but first, …” That simple line is a perennial favorite among my co-workers from various companies. (Computer programming, not bomb defusing, but draw your own parallels.)
