August 9: Hawkeye changes wars; now, it is The War Between the States and the tired surgeon wants to secede from the Army. He goes to Rosie's for breakfast after 2 full days in surgery. Sgt. Jack Scully (Joshua Bryant) enters, AWOL, he avows never to return to the fighting. This strikes a chord in Hawkeye. BJ is sucked into the cozy bamboo security blanket. As the trio drinks and sings, BJ mentions secession and a new, sovereign country is formed: Rosieland. The motto is life, liberty and the pursuit of happy hour. Klinger enters: Col. Potter is looking for his runaways, but Klinger brought knee pads for the duration of the Wang Ho crap games. The 4077 trickles into Rosieland; a few salute their new flag. Father Mulcahy enters, at mid-debauch, to ask BJ to return to 4077. Chuckles is the first POW, gagged and hog-tied to a chair. Soon, Fr. Mulcahy is shooting craps with Klinger and Cho Kim (Keye Luke). Radar is trying to wake the unconscious Maj. Frank Dorsett. Scully romances ... Written by LA-Lawyer

Unscheduled Day Out at M*A*S*H 4077
27 September 2006 | by (Kirkland, Washington) – See all my reviews

A very funny episode where the staff gravitate to Rosie's, starting with Hawkeye looking for breakfast. He's soon joined by an AWOL sergeant and eventually nearly everyone ends up there. Several sub-plots make this episode worth paying attention to - Idignant "Chaaals" looking for Hawkeye to relieve him as Officer of the Day, Klinger getting into the back-room craps game (with a hilarious set of dealers, played by Keye Luke and Richard Lee-Sung), a lost (and coma-drunk) Army officer no one knows the identity of, and the creation of "Rosieland", the new sovereign nation from which they are never leaving. A great vision of an overworked, stressed-out group of people letting off some steam and finding a few hours of normality in an insane place.
