Once again, Rob (Dick Van Dyke) flashes back to his Army days, specifically to that brief period in which he was known "Pitter-Patter" Petrie, middleweight boxing champion of Special Services. Thanks to the manipulations of his pal Sol Pomerantz (Allan Melvin), a reluctant Rob is scheduled for a bout with the motor pool's best pugilist, Boom Boom Bailey (Paul Stader) -- and since everyone, including his commanding officer, has wagered on the match's outcome, there's no way Rob can weasel out. And as for Laura (Mary Tyler Moore) -- well, to quote Rob, she's "no Lilli Palmer." Future sitcom producer Garry Marshall appears as the referee.
