Storyline

Henry calls an emergency meeting for all officers to apprise them that their supply lines have been cut and there are several items and foodstuffs they will not receive until further notice. Henry places Radar in charge of housing, Trapper, power and heating, Hawkeye, mechanics and toilet paper, Father Mulcahy, morale, Frank, food distribution and conservation, and Margaret, the nurses. Shortages and sleepovers make odd bedfellows...if only the supply trucks would roll again! Written by LA-Lawyer

Goofs

In the opening scene there is a reference to mouth-to-mouth resuscitation. CPR was invented by Austrian surgeon Peter Safar. He didn't finish medical school until 1948; and hadn't begun teaching the technique of CPR until the late 1950s to early 60s, after the Korean War had ended. Mouth-to-mouth wouldn't have been a term used in this time frame. See more »

Quotes

Father Francis Mulcahy: [prayer before bed with all the guys in the SWAMP] "Now I lay me down to sleep, a bag of peanuts at my feet. If I should die before I before I wake, give them to my brother Jake."

One of my favorite episodes
11 February 2015 | by See all my reviews

In this episode of MASH, all of the major characters get solid laugh lines. A supply line cut to the 4077th by the enemy leads to the survival of the "fuel-ist" literally. "oh, they'll burn anything to keep warm" Radar tells Col. Blake... and after Henry's desk gets amputated..."to cut off a man's legs, and steal his drawers"...solid laugh fest. Humor to relieve stress is rampant here. The interchange between Klinger and Frank Burns is priceless!

This is a solid ensemble episode. Everyone gets to shine. As an actor myself, I enjoy ensemble plays. This is one of the classic early episodes.

Enjoy!!!
