Charles Emerson Winchester, III has a dream in which he performs magic. In reality, David Ogden Stiers originated the role of Feldman the Magnificent, a magician, in the Broadway production of "The Magic Show." See more »
This will live on as the strangest of all the MASH episodes. After endless surgery, the main characters each go off to bed and have dreams. We are able to see what they dream. It starts with Margaret who is wearing a wedding dress. She goes into a field and is in bed with a handsome man. Suddenly, a patrol of soldiers comes by, takes him into their ranks, and now she is lying in bed with several wounded men and her dress is covered in blood. B.J. is next. He is wearing a tuxedo as his wife walks toward him. They dance and soon find themselves in the operating room and he must leave her to perform surgery. Two other men come and take her away. Potter dozes off and a black horse appears in his office and he rides off. He is playing polo with a grenade. He then sees himself as a child riding a horse on the farm. Charles is next. He is wearing a cape and white gloves. He is a magician. He performs tricks while the rest of the crew applauds. Soon, Potter pulls a curtain aside and a young patient dies in front of him and all he can do are magic tricks. He is helpless. He then starts to tap dance with sparklers in his hand. Mulcahy listens to a confession where a young man begins to speak in gibberish. Suddenly, Mulcahy has become the Pope, but as he tries to read from the Bible, blood drops from the ceiling. Klinger's dream is a railroad trip to Toledo (of course).When he gets there he goes to his favorite hot dog place and they are doing surgery on "him." Finally, it's Hawkeye's turn. He imagines he has a surgical procedure, but he can't remember what to do because he missed it in medical school. He has to give up one of his arms to the teacher. Then his left arm. They just pull out of the socket. He soon finds himself limbless, floating in a bot with arms and legs floating by. This is a wacko episode where he is unable to do anything despite requests to help.
