Storyline

A wounded soldier who has been laying in stagnant water is brought into the Mash O/R. The smell is noticed by Hawkeye and seems to strike a personal chord. Afterwards he starts sneezing uncontrollably day and night. When Sydney Freeman is called, they both discover an intense memory from Hawkeye's past about a childhood accident that he has creatively "re-written' to hide an ugly truth. Written by Sam Shollenberger

Wow, What a Psychiatrist!
25 April 2015 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

I've always loved this episode, even if it is pretty incredible. The camp is awakened by casualties coming in. The men are in various situations of disrepair. One of them has lice; one other has fallen into a water filled ditch and smells of mold and stagnant water. After finishing in the Operating Room, Hawkeye begins to sneeze. He sneezes uncontrollably all night and into the next day. Everyone tries to help, but nothing works. Soon he begins to think he is going to die. Allergy tests reveal nothing. Finally, he is relieved of surgery until things can be sorted out. Potter decides it's something psychological and sends for Sidney Freedman. The only problem is that this is a half hour show and the results of his visit are pretty remarkable. Still, it is kind of neat how everything gets put back together.
