In this Season 1 episode (The Feudin’ Pyles), Sgt. Carter (Frank Sutton)does his very best to teach the art of bayonet warfare to the idiotic Pvt. Pyle (Jim Nabors).
Video Rating: four / five
Why didnt we use Pyle to get Al Queda?
Carter: Are we keeping you from something important? I wouldn’t wanna keep you awaaay from anything….
Gomer: Oh that’s real considerate of you sergeant…bu–
Carter: GET ON THE TRUCK!!!!!
So where is this “Bayonet” training ????
A sentimental favorite! Nabors’ talent is under-rated.
Haha. “ah? You couldn’t scare a bunny rabbit.” Carter had quite a way of dealing with Pyle. I member as a child I asked my dad (Vietnam vet U.S.M.C.) “There’s no way a guy like Gomer could ever really be a Marine?” He said Believe it or not, there’s one in every platoon. Perhaps he exaggerated, but the point is there. God bless the corps.
That Sgt. Carter was a real softy at heart.
I love gomer and he’s 30 years before me:D
@themanfromwyoming you mean “shazam” ?
I think the policy now is deffinately kill the drill instructor.
The reasoning for that is because we kill muslims and todays drill instructor is a big black muslim.
It’s not the same army it was when Pyle was a soldier.
That’s Gunnery Sgt. Carter!!!
I remember Pyle looking old – but 35 years on – I look older than him
One of the Best Shows on TV and Thanks for Posting.
to all fellow jar-heads:who has ever heard a gunny call the troops “nitwits” and “knuckleheads”? Or say “move it move move it” for that matter? I remember hearing friendy suggestions to “get the lead out of your asses” and some other colorful phrases, and some even more colorful names and questions about our parentage!
@eanstaett24 if you search Gomer Pyle USMC intro im sure you’ll find it
Yes, and I’m sure a real Marine DI would be so patient and so… um… not screaming loud enough to rupture a human eardrum.
Pugil is so fun
Does anyone know if there is a video of the beginning where the marine color guard marched under the arch? my father is carrying the American flag.

Sergeant: Pyle, could the superior of the US Marines have your assistance for a moment??
Sergeant: MOVE IT!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
