* In one episode Sgt. Carter becomes obliged to include Pyle in a Color Guard (because he's one of the only troops who will have dress blues in time) and spends most of the episode trying to find a way out of it. In the end, Carter gets enough money together to buy a uniform for a different Marine, but then Gomer comes in distraught, having lost the money for the uniform in a crap game with his friend, Duke. Realizing how much being in the Color Guard meant to Gomer, Carter breaks down and buys the uniform for Pyle instead so that he can participate.
