- mission accomplished, captain, that is the o'connell. - all right. you're under arrest now, mchale. arrest this man. get him. arrest him. - arrest? what for, captain? - oh, this is the end of the line, mchale. i've got the goods on you this time. you black marketeer. - black marketeer? - that's what it's going to say on your cell door. your accomplice, big frenchy just left here at half a mile warehouse. - accomplice? but, captain, i wasn't even in this. look, i was the one that tried to warn you about that pirate. - yeah, that's part of the plot. you know whatever you say, i do just the opposite. i've got the goods on all of you. your contact man parker, he's gone with frenchy and his gang of thieves. but the rest of you are going to stand trial. - parker left with them? - those dirty cutthroats. - yeah, they must have grabbed him as a hostage. - poor mr. parker's a goner. - all right, you men, that's a great performance. you should have enlisted in the u.s.o. but now you're going to the brig. get down off of there, that's an order. - sorry, sir, i can't oblige you, captain. but mr. parker's life may be in danger.
- wait a minute. you come back here, stop untying that. elroy, give me a hand, elroy. elroy! - seamen, take hold! quick! quick! - ok, you guys. we don't have much time. we didn't beat frenchy in by much. now, first, we can't use guns. secondly, we can't let them see us, or they're liable to hurt chuck. so, we got to round them up without laying one hand on 'em. - well, how do we do that? - look, have i ever failed ya? - no. - well, i've failed you now. i haven't the slightest idea how we're going to do it.
- yeah? - here they come, boys. all right, lay low. this is it. come on. get. get. - all right, let's get this unloaded before the gendarmerie show up. - yeah--gendarmerie? hey, isn't that french for police? - well, no, no, no, no it is a man's name. in your country the traitor was monsieur benedict arnold,
- frenchy! [speaking in french] [yelling] - skipper, is that you? hey, what are you guys doing on-- - unh! i know you are out there, mchale. now you come out with your hands up, or you are minus one ensign. - major. - pardon. - boys, hold it. hold it. i know frenchy and he means it. - hey, what's going on here, general? i demand an explanation. - you've been taken, chuck. frenchy doesn't work for the underground, he's in business for himself, in the black market. - black market? well, if that's so, general bouchet, i demand that you return your--that smarts. - chuck, don't let him get your gun. - my gun? oh, yeah. - give me that. all right, mchale, thank you very much, now i won't need
- and thank you, frenchy, for solving our problem. now we can go closer, boys. - oh, i wouldn't do that if i were you, skip. - neither would i, mchale. - ah, now don't worry there, chuck. he may have your gun, but i've got your bullets. [clicking] i took them out this morning when you nearly shot your leg off, remember? ha ha ha ha! - sacre bleu. who can fight such stupidity? - there. - hey, skip, here comes binghamton and the admiral. - all right, mchale, i've got you and your gang of thieves this time. you're all under arrest. - boy, skip, you better give me back my gun. i'm in enough trouble as it is. - oh, relax, chuck. let him yell. we've got nothing to worry about. - oh, well, i guess you're right. we did capture big frenchy. it's a good thing you took the bullets out of this. [gunshots]
- my fault, skip. i couldn't bear to leave mr. parker alone without any bullets, so i put a few back in. w w it's worth a hole in my hat to round up this gang of black marketeers. mchale, parker, i'm proud of you. - thank you, sir. we're glad to be of help. - all right, men, let's get these fellas to the police station. - bye-bye, sir. - that was very clever of you, mchale. no wonder they call you the jungle fox. - come on, come on, get out of here.

-you found her. -bingo. yup, here's where wilbur did his browsing before he bought your store. kay: read what it says about her. "phi beta kappa, captain of debating team, "president of literary honorary society, "winner of socrates award, school of philosophy." i thought so... just a dumb blonde. whoops, sorry. i wonder what they talked about when wilbur took her out on dates. oh, probably nuclear physics, plato's dialogues, the theory of relativity. what do you two talk about? my hairdresser, holes in his socks, bills from the plumber, whether we should have fish or meatballs for dinner. do you think that's an intellectual conversation, kay? only if it's in latin. oh, doll, stop trying to compete with that great brain from wilbur's past. i'm sure wilbur misses those cultural moments he shared with her.
the way you fill that dress is all you need. no, kay. something new is going to be added. gosh, that aristotle sure had a great mind, didn't he? uh-huh. just like plato. he thought of the universe as an ideal world, an interrelated organic system of... eternal, unchangeable forms. wilbur. if you want it, honey, you go buy it. wilbur. hm? oh, i'm sorry. what are you reading, carol? aristotle's metaphysics, rhetoric, and poetics. you ought to read it, honey. no, i'll wait until they make it into a movie. frank sinatra should be great as aristotle.
hm? do you know why they called aristotle's school the peripatetic? look, what am i having here, lunch or a final exam? you just don't want to discuss anything intellectual with me. you don't think i'm on your level. carol, what are you so upset about? all you think i can talk about is whether we have fish or meatballs for dinner or holes in your socks. holes in my socks for dinner? who can understand women? hello, is this j.p. allen the locksmith? good. i've got a stall door that's jammed. would you bring a blowtorch over? forget it. the warden just came in. i heard that, ed, and it's not going to do you any good. you will stay locked in that stall.
if i'm going to wear stripes, i might as well be a zebra. you're acting like a jackass. so, now you're bringing my relatives into this. oh, wilbur, how about a pardon? no, ed. thanks to you i was up all night copying mr. holbrook's plans. now, wilbur, you know i love you like a brother. when you punish me, you're only hurting yourself, and i hate to hurt you, so let me out. sorry, ed. okay, then you'll have to do it the hard way. sunday you'll go horseback riding without a horse. you ever hear of renting a horse, ed? oh, now, that's dirty pool. if your wife was locked up in the house for a week, you wouldn't go out and rent another wife, would you? well, i'll cross that bridge when i come to it. (ed groaning) i've got to deliver mr. holbrook's plans now. wilbur, i'm going to give you one more chance. -what? -unlock the door! goodbye, ed. i hope you're happy with your rented horse. it'll be a change to be with an animal
