Major Charles Emerson Winchester, III enjoyed his daily dosage of classical music in "The Swamp" at the show's opening. Little did he know that Captains Pierce and Hunnicutt returned to the 4077th to find out a surprise ailment was inflicting on the soldiers' well-being and recuperation. Kwang (played by Sab Shimoto) did his best to survive the Major Winchester's non-stop barrage of work. Colonel Potter does everything possible to find an answer to a mysterious rash problem afflicting the patients in the post-operation ward (all to no avail over the telephone). Even the surgeons and doctors had no clue of finding the malady from a pool of 10,500 plants in all of Korea. Kwang then found the cure: Korean boiled bark -- consisting of rank blue liquid to cure their rashes in a large bowl. Everybody from the 4077th (including Major Winchester with reluctance) praised Kwang for his hard work during the malady: a diploma. The Korean boiled bark had more stench than all of the Gold Dial soap in the show.
