Yes, well, that's what I thought.
where all you do is just
fill in the blanks.
No, it's got to be more than that.
It's gotta say something about Millie.
I'd say good-bye to her and toss off
a couple of wisecracks and, uh...
Entertaining prospective partners.
Now can we get on with this?
I have some meaningless, trivial business...
Please, Major, it's already
past this guy's bedtime.
the word "stupidity"
was without a definition.
- Margaret, can I talk to you for a minute?
Had a background
in thoracic surgery.
Uh, well, she wasn't here
all that long.
I'm sure the other nurses
must have known her better.
She usually volunteered for the night shifts,
so I hardly ever talked to her.
- Yeah, what we had of it.
- I don't think I understand. What do you mean?
Yeah, I know, but you lived with her.
You must have talked about something.
She was a good nurse.
You like it?
Oh, well, that explains that.
Well, not much of anything.
- I like to give him a punch.
- Got a better one?
- It is... simple.
you may just have captured
the essence of stupidity.
- Now you're thinkin' big.
- You come right along with me,
Sergeant, over to my tent.
I'm having a real problem
with this eulogy.
As summary court officer,
I was obliged to read it.
Maybe someday I'll be able to get up
the courage to tell Hawkeye how I feel.
She was head nurse of
the thoracic surgery unit at Letterman.
She never let on. Well, I was
so busy being casual about things...
"Dear Uncle Amir:
Of course it's stupid.
You told me that's what you loved about it.
She was working on the night shift,
so n-no one was around to see it. L-
she looked upon us with
a kind of awe that...
but it was because,
as Millie wrote so often...

Tired of reminders about Trapper John's skill as a practical joker, B.J. bets Hawkeye he can prank everyone present.
[Chuckles] I must admit.
That's quite a joke there, Hunnicutt.
We had wash hung out to dry.
I'll bet if old Trapper were here now...
When does it start?
Then I guess
the tables would be turned.
What's going on!
Getting a little nervous, Hawkeye.
My, my, aren't we jumpy today?
- Sir, you're as green as your uniform.
Someone put shaving cream...
Far be it from me to grouse
when I get got.
to swap an M.D.
With the 8063rd for a day.
Enough already. I'll go.
It will get me out of the line of seltzer fire.
- I work here. I'm relieving you.
- Oh, right.
Yeah. Well, forget it.
It's not gonna work.
- I must do my job.
- Yeah. And I must do mine.
Needless to say,
I wasn't wearing my fatigues at the time.
You don't have
a shred of decency.
and a father with a short temper
and a quick jab.
- You'd like that, wouldn't ya?
Well, what's the "slop" de jour?
So, the carrots and peas are good, huh?
You say the carrots
and peas are good...
He's not gonna
have me for lunch.
Look at him.
You poisoned a priest.
Four from six is, uh, two.
Isn't it, Hawk?
- Pork chops. Did you have the pork chops tonight?
That's great, Doc.
I guess you thought
I'd get a real bang out of this, huh?
You really should relax.
You're getting very edgy.
Start down there at the far end.
- Hey! What are ya...
- It's not even good acting.
- He Japanese!
Nice try, Beej. I gotta hand it to ya,
the ploys are getting sicker and sicker.
Klinger, relax. It's me.
I admire your courage, if not your intelligence.
- What happened?
- I went to file away your reports.
Always a good sport, Father.
My, my, Mr. Close-But-No-Cigar.
Well, now I...
I wouldn't exactly say that.
- Did you see my file go blooey?
- Or try my lunch?
it was an honor to be part of it.

The Army tries to get a North Korean pilot to defect, and Charles gets a rude shock when he falls for a French nurse with a Bohemian past.
Allow me to introduce myself.
- Please excuse us.
- Okay, okay. Fine. Fine.
Yeah. The French aren't on my side.
I much prefer it to the Louvre.
I love the impressionists.
And my mother used to take me...
- Please. Uh...
We got dressed as elegantly
as we were able...
And then he looks down
and suddenly... [Imitating Fall And Crash]
Well, he wasn't in his bed all night,
so where else could he have been?
- Well, it's about time.
- Put her there, Major.
He says he wants to go home.
Never heard of Mark Clark.
And you can keep your money.
Tell the ungrateful fool
he can forget about home.
- It's bonsoir now.
- Yes? May l...
quite know how to do it.
because I have not felt that close
to a man for more than a year.
The memories are still alive.
Ah. Oh, by the way.
This handsome pinstripe
suit with two... two pair of pants.
Now leave him alone.
Look, fellas. I'd like to have a hero who loves us.
That was my first choice.
So you just stay here. And you two,
take real good care of our boy.
What he's offering
the lieutenant is a better life.
One day we went
to the countryside near Honfleur...
Phillipe, he owed quite
a bit of money at a bistro...
I was never married.
I would like to come
to your country.
Uh, yeah. Yes.
At least I thought she was because
she could pronounce boulangerie.
Can't understand it.
been very nice company.
No, thank you.
giving her the gate...
would like to talk to you.
Huh? Oh, yeah.
Charles, have you
a moment to speak?
They could never understand
the life you've lived...
I can't change who I am.

a little boy.

It's Halloween at the 4077th, and the staff dons costumes and trade ghost stories. Father Mulcahy discovers a soldier alive that had been pronounced dead.
- Hello. I'm Dr. Winchester.
Oh. You seem to be a bit...
I can do that. Gadzooks!
- [Muffled Grunt]
- Oh! Now I see.
I could stick the thermometer
in your mouth.
- I shall pull all your teeth.
- Uh-uh! Uh-uh!
Be forewarned, Private Mosconi.
Now I know why cowboys
Some party guests have arrived
dressed as wounded soldiers.
- This kid's a Catholic. Where's Father Mulcahy?
- He's at the orphanage.
- Now what?
- Uh-oh. I'd better go check.
It's gotta be the generator.
One night back in '39,
Mildred had a dream...
"It's bad news, isn't it?"
There's more wounded
in the compound.
Compound leg fracture.
Prep him. And be careful.
Me and this corporal decided
to have a little jeep race... backward.
Unfortunately, I ran over
the whole chicken coop.
His compass is broken, there's no radio,
and there's a storm coming up.
The next day, when he told the Coast Guard
how he found his way back...
You haven't got a prayer,
even with the luck of the Irish.
The mine explosion drove it
right into this boy's leg like a spear.
- What have we got here?
- Shoulder wound, Doctor.
He's so thin, you could probably
just hold him up to the light.
After her husband's funeral, she decided
to take a picture of the car wreck...
could be in one room
at the same time.
Let's get this finished up as soon as possible.
We're shifting into overdrive.
I understand you have
a marine corporal here... Hrabosky.
We ain't only responsible for those chickens,
but for all the eggs they would've laid.
Yeah. Well, let's get him loaded up
and then get some coffee.
- I don't wanna hear it, Klinger.
- I don't wanna say it, sir.
It wasn't a jaw.
It was a fan.
When they finally withdrew,
our C.O. Was real proud of us.
I ate real fast...
gettin' my tray
loaded down again, and...
I'd be dead, too, if l...
You don't look
so invincible yourself.
Hi. I want to thank you
for taking up the time...
sometime in the future...

Margaret and her nursing staff are about to be inspected by Col. Bucholz. Meanwhile, Kellye is offended that Hawkeye is attracted to any nurse except her.
Okay, boys, let's cool down.
- [Horns Honking]
I traded 'em in at the evac
for brand new ones.
Great. When we're through doing this,
maybe we can dance.
how long it takes you
to get settled in after a bugout.
I want the nurses
to meet me in the O.R. In 10 minutes.
- Oh, good. You're in bed.
Get a good night's sleep.
- Thank you.
Thanks to you doctors,
I'm going to get thrown out of the army...
Track down everything
on this list and put it where it belongs.
Can I read the label on that box?
I have a cheek
with your cheek's name on it.
Whenever I look at you,
I hear that song.
The hinge is bent. That's all.
Takes three seconds.
Yeah. Sort of sick and tired.
- Who's going to do this?
- I'll do it, Major.
You know what you're doing wrong.
You're using the wrong flange.
I'll do it.
You go to the Officers Club.
Hi. If you're not busy later, I thought maybe
you and I could drag our feet together.
So, uh, you wouldn't
wanna dance or anything?
- The autoclave. I fixed it in no time.
- Oh, great.
- So why don't I buy you that drink now?
- Yeah. Sure. Great.
We used to practice
all the time in the backyard. [Giggles]
- I'd like to see your emergency trays.
- Right this way, Colonel.
Is this how you always keep
your emergency trays?
Maybe we should rearrange the patients
so all their wounds are lined up.
With Webster, she's unforgettable.
And me you treat like a rag mop.
Is that what this is about,
that I was a little distracted last night?
and a perky little nose
that would fit in a bottle cap.
Just a minute, Lieutenant.
What is this racket?
or I'll paste one on you.
- There are a number of things
I want to work on in here.
- Right, Major.
What is wrong, Margaret? Would you
like me to dust under my vegetables?
- Are you telling me I work my nurses too hard?
- If he's not, I will.
[Shari] That woman
is driving me nuts.
we could go for a ride in the car.
No, not your fried chicken.
Do you feel better?
- You have my notes on the supply room.
I brought these for you.
