Practical Jokes and Alcoholism
25 April 2015 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

This episode starts out with a ridiculous scene in the OR. Charles goes to operate on a soldier whom he thinks has a thoracic injury, when Hawkeye comes up behind him and cuts the chords to his pants, leaving him naked from the waist down. The reaction is decidedly against the practical joker and Pierce must now endure disdain from the troops. While this is happening, a good friend of Margaret's, who has serious responsibilities, begins to drink heavily. She carelessly grabs a bottle of the wrong blood type and if Klinger isn't there, she could have killed the patient. This brings about the oldest thing in the world--do you tell on your friends. Apparently this woman has a history of boozing, but assured Margaret she had licked the problem. While she is hiding her problem, Hawkeye is trying to even the score, hoping to be victimized by Winchester. But there is a fly in the ointment. Well done treatment of body detox.
