"None of my business, consenting adults and so on."
—Corporal Bishop[src]

Corporal Bishop, also known as Stinky, served in World War I and was in the same squadron as Woodhouse. After the mysterious deaths of many members of their old squadron, Stinky reconnected with Woodhouse. They both suspected Lieutenant Scripes of murdering their squad mates in order to win the Tontine. Stinky then joined forces with Woodhouse, attempting to fortify Sterling Archer's apartment in New York against an attack by Scripes.

Upon arriving at Sterling's apartment, Stinky suspected Woodhouse and Archer of having a homosexual relationship. He even manages a "that's what he said" joke when Sterling tells Woodhouse that he's going to be eating spiderwebs later. He also mistakenly believes that Sterling and Woodhouse adopted the wee baby Seamus together.

Stinky is shot twice during the course of The Double Deuce. When Sterling returns from dropping off Seamus with Malory, Woodhouse and Stinky fire arrows at the door, thinking that Archer was Lieutenant Scripes. In retaliation, Sterling shoots his gun blindly, hitting Stinky in his left arm. Later when Scripes arrived at Archer's apartment, Stinky and Woodhouse attacked him. In his own defense, Scripes shot back with Reggie's Webley Revolver and hits Stinky's other arm.


  • The name "Stinky" Bishop is probably taken from the English cheese variety called Stinking Bishop.  
  • He lives with his niece in Secaucus, New Jersey.
  • Corporal Bishop is similar in appearance to Le Chuffre.
  • With Woodhouse's death in Season 8, he presumably won the Tontine.
