"One More for the Road" is an episode of "Combat!" where Sgt. Saunders seems to be lost with the unique situation of finding an orphaned baby. He does not seem to know exactly what to do since his orders are questioned by the squad, maybe for the first time in this season. The dramatic and dangerous decision of carrying a baby while crossing the enemy lines is really difficult to be taken, and the remorse of losing a man may corroborate to affect him. But the conclusion is nice with Sauders showing his real feelings. My vote is eight.
