Catch-22 Chapter 12: Bologna
Rain and a sudden outbreak of diarrhea delay the mission to Bologna. Yossarian, believing he will be killed in Bologna, further postpones the mission when he stealthily moves the bomb line on the map of Italy. Thinking Bologna is captured, officials mistakenly cancel the mission. Clevinger criticizes Yossarian's rebellious attitude and disobedient self-concern. Yossarian fires back, "Open your eyes, Clevinger. It doesn't make a damned bit of difference who wins the war to someone who's dead." Chapter 12, pg. 133-134 Depressed and jumpy, the men get drunk and go joy-riding in a jeep without headlights. Hungry Joe's screams attract the intoxicated crew to camp. Yossarian arrives at Hungry Joe's tent just in time to officiate a fight between the screaming dreamer and Huple's suffocating cat.
