McHale’s Navy Season 1×36 | “Uncle Admiral” 27 Jun. 1963
Binghamton makes Parker his personal aide, in the hope of impressing Parker’s uncle – an admiral on the Promotions Board (played by Harry Von Zell). But the admiral is uncomfortable with the fact that his inept nephew also functions as a combat officer, and orders Parker to pack his bags for a safer position in the States. He changes his mind, however, when he sees how dedicated McHale and the crew are to Ensign Parker, after they put themselves at risk to rescue him in the Bay during an air raid.
