Storyline

Hawkeye is bored and tired, the best time to pen another missive to his father. He describes Klinger's sheer white wedding gown, which does little to hide his white boxer shorts but is better than Hawkeye's naked dining fiasco. There is more fun to be had over Hotlips' recent tiff with Frank; he got drunk on gin and confided that his own brother used to call him Ferret Face. Radar is now a real, honest to goodness mail order graduate. But, Captain Casey, the new boy genius of their surgical team, is not really a doctor; Hawkeye's failure to throw the book at him causes Casey to reassess his career choices: and an R.C. priest named Schwartz is born. Henry conducts the doctors playing and Hotlips singing "My Blue Heaven" but no one is listening. Hotlips is really selling it, but it is hard to get the Army behind any color but olive drab, Written by LA-Lawyer

The Naked Truth
23 February 2015 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Hawkeye writes his father again and again we see the day to day activities of the 4077 MASH. Hawkeye is so caught up in the boredom and complacency of the unit, that he bets Trapper that he can walk naked into the mess tent without being noticed. The second main plot involves a man who is an incredible surgeon. He has been an amazing help to the unit as Hawkeye points out what a step up he is from Frank Burns. It turns out this guy is not legally a doctor which brings about some moral decisions. While this is going on, Radar has been doing a correspondence course to get his high school diploma. He tries to sneak some paperwork by Henry Blake which leads to a hilarious scene. Gary Burghoff and McLean Stevenson had great comedic timing and it works well here.
