Episode cast overview:
Lt. Col. Henry Blake
Nurse Sanchez
Edward Marshall ...


Intelligence shows the 4077 is not being shelled, but Radar prefers to rely on his own senses. Henry and Father are both trapped in a shelled latrine; poor Father is so dazed, he revisits his childhood. Frank refuses to operate on a North Korean and he is not happy with the new UN nurse from Costa Rica, Nurse Sanchez. Another patient comes in, but he is booby-trapped: boom-boom, as per Sanchez. Intelligence confirms the U.S. is shelling itself. Huzzah! Sanchez affixes herself to Hawkeye and Trapper tries to affix himself to Hotlips when they get stuck in the Supply Room; trust Trapper to always find the bright side in a crisis! When Frank and Hawkeye rescue them, Hotlips denies and Trapper leers. Frank is so crazy with jealousy, he proposes. But what? Written by LA-Lawyer

When the announcement about the bug-out is heard, Trapper and Hawkeye are leaving the supply tent. Trapper says, "Evacuate to where?" As bombs go off, Trapper is clearly saying something that can't be heard, and then Hawkeye says, "Now the Book of the Month club will never find me." It appears that the filmmakers decided to cut one line. See more »


Lt./Capt. Father Francis J. Mulcahy: [as he is being pulled from a bombed latrine, a dazed Father Mulcahy recounts a childhood memory] Sis and I picked these apples from under the tree. I remember, I said "You can't make a pie out of crabapples!" And she said, "I learned how in the girl scouts."
Capt. Benjamin Franklin "Hawkeye" Pierce: He'll be alright. He's just a little dazed.
Lt./Capt. Father Francis J. Mulcahy: She used brown sugar, and the crust was just so crispy and nice. Well, it was so good, we ate it all before dinner.

Bombs Away!
6 March 2015 | by See all my reviews

This takes us to the MASH unit under the worst of circumstances. Radar spends his time trying to convince HQ that the camp is being bombed. They insist that there are no bombs being dropped/then change their tunes and admit it is "friendly" fire. The plot then is directed toward Frank's jealousy when Margaret and Trapper get locked in the supply shed. The bombings are constant, blowing out windows, destroying much of the camp. It's not a remarkable episode, but one can only imagine the horrors of such a situation. There is a funny scene when Henry and Mulcahy are blown up in the latrine. Mulcahy's ramblings are quite hilarious.
