Trivia

The final scene shows Radar pretending to be a Doctor as he has ordered bed rest for Hawkeye. It is a rare site to see Radar without a clipboard in his left hand. Gary Burghoff has a deformed left hand that he took great pains to hide during the run of M*A*S*H, yet in this scene he holds his left hand out in front of him but makes a fist as he takes Hawkeye's pulse even though he is not wearing a watch.

Quotes

Hawkeye: You know that little shot you gave me for the flu?
Margaret: Yes.
Hawkeye: Well it worked, I got it.
Margaret: Are you sure?
Hawkeye: I've got enough nausea to light up the city of Toledo, okay? First I'm hot, then I'm cold, and my knees are in business for themselves. My tongue has gone cashmere, and I'd like to find an all night latrine that takes servicemen. Now, have I got the flu or am I just in love?
Margaret: Do you think you can operate?
Hawkeye: I've got to. What am I going to tell the casualties? To stop bleeding until I feel better?
Hawkeye: [...]

When the Chips Are Down
26 February 2015 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

This is quite a good episode where the crew must come to the fore. An epidemic of flu takes out most of the doctors and support staff. This leaves Hawkeye and Margaret to operate and administrate. It also means that such non-medical people as Mulcahy and Radar are pressed into service, as well as nurses who don't normally do any kind of surgical procedures. Hawkeye must show respect for Margaret (who turns out to be a strong leader--setting up future episodes) and she for him. The patient comes first and they keep coming. Radar's efforts to get another surgeon fall on deaf ears. The cream rises to the top and things go forward. Some of the funnier scenes involve doctors trying to return to surgery before they are well. McLean Stevenson is a master at sight humor. This episode sets the stage for those that are yet to come.
