Wiki includes the sum basis of the humor and point of Catch-22:

There was only one catch and that was Catch-22, which specified that a concern for one's safety in the face of dangers that were real and immediate was the process of a rational mind. Orr was crazy and could be grounded. All he had to do was ask; and as soon as he did, he would no longer be crazy and would have to fly more missions. Orr would be crazy to fly more missions and sane if he didn't, but if he was sane he had to fly them. If he flew them he was crazy and didn't have to; but if he didn't want to he was sane and had to. Yossarian was moved very deeply by the absolute simplicity of this clause of Catch-22 and let out a respectful whistle.

"That's some catch, that Catch-22," he [Yossarian] observed.
"It's the best there is," Doc Daneeka agreed.

I'm sure you mean Paulo, but don't forget the Portuguese guys working for Penny last season!

Catch-22 .
1. a situation in which a person is frustrated by a paradoxical rule or set of circumstances that preclude any attempt to escape from them.
2. a situation in which any move that a person can make will lead to trouble [from the title of a novel (1961) by J. Heller]"

I'm super excited and keeping my fingers crossed that it'll be a good episode... I've been dying for the Penny-Des story for a long time now! Where's mindsparkle and Des8 when you need them? :)

Anyway, Happy Lost Viewing to all, and good night!!! :)
