The Swamp Rats make fun of Frank as he types a form newsletter to his patients in Indiana called "What's Up Front, Doc?" Hawkeye invents the perfect martini: drink 6 jiggers of gin while staring at a photo of Lorenzo Schwartz, inventor of vermouth as Trapper soaks his feet in bedpans. In the O.R., Frank is humiliated; every doctor, nurse and orderly asks Hawkeye for help and advice and never asks Frank. Henry resolves this touchy issue by appointing Hawkeye Chief Surgeon. But, Frank's typewriter never runs out of ribbon; and General Barker receives a letter from Frank and Hotlips complaining about Hawkeye's promotion. It does not help, when Barker arrives, Hawkeye and Trapper are playing poker, Henry is playing with worms and Spearchucker is playing strip domino with Ginger. Could things possibly get worse? With Klinger on Guard Duty, anything is possible. Written by
