Three different people have been named "Nurse Baker", including a single woman, a married woman and a woman of a different race (she was Black while the other two were Caucasian). However, Baker is a popular American name, and could have been shared by more than one person in the 501st. In addition, "Baker" is the second entry in the old US Navy radio alphabet. "Able," the first entry, is the name of several nurses throughout the series. "Able" and "Baker" appear to be placeholder-type names, possibly an in-joke for military viewers. See more »

This is still one of the funniest shows on television, especially the first four seasons when they still had a broad sense of humor. To me the glory days of M*A*S*H ended with the departure of Larry Linville (Major Frank Burns). After his departure, especially in the final three years, the show became more and more issue oriented and pretty much lost me until the classic finale. Other than that, it was still a great show.
