This will always remain my favorite episode of MASH. For those that have never seen it, I will not do anything to spoil it. Suffice it to say that I was totally taken in by it and I still enjoy seeing it every year or so. It's around April 1 and the children are restless. They begin to play juvenile tricks on one another. Potter becomes concerned because a take- no-prisoners Colonel is coming to camp. He is known as the ultimate butt kicker and for having no sense of humor. He also can hold the future of surgical teams in his hands. The gang gets into a pillow fight after Margaret's tent has been stolen, and who should show up just at that time but this Colonel. He immediately has it in for everyone and has no respect for their actions in the operating room. This episode is intricately crafted and delivers the goods. Love it.
