From The TV IV
McHale's Navy is a military sitcom that aired on ABC.
In the first episode it is established that McHale is a former merchant ship captain who was intimately familiar with the South Pacific over a period of 20 years. McHale's second-in-command is Ensign Charles Parker (Tim Conway), who is referred to by McHale as "Chuck" and by the crew as "Mr. Parker" (in the United States Navy all officers ranked from Warrant Officer to Lieutenant Commander who are not in command are more often than not referred to as "Mister"). Conway's performance as a gentle, naïve but somewhat gung-ho bungler who usually succeeded in spite of his own ineptitude was career-defining. Parker frequently mentions that he is from Chagrin Falls, Ohio (Tim Conway grew up there in real life). Among Parker's catchphrases were "Gee, I love that kind of talk" and citations of various naval regulations. In an episode entitled "The Great Impersonation," Mr. Parker is called upon to impersonate a famous British General (Tim Conway in a dual role) in Noumea, New Caledonia (where he dodges assassins) while the real general leads an invasion against Japanese forces.
