Col. Potter does not like Mr. Yee peddling goods from his pushcart on the 4077 base but he gives him an hour to close business and move. Potter asks his superstitious Company Clerk to move the new Spirit Post away from the side of the road. As Radar drags it away, a cyclist collides with Mr. Yee's pushcart and Col. Potter's new lighter stops working. The PA system for the entire camp inextricably "goes on the fritz" and Frank crushes one of Hotlip's fingers in a clamp. Three new light bulbs sputter and pop in an overhead light; a blood pressure gauge breaks in the middle of surgery. Cpl. Marsh, one of BJ's former patients, is in his care again and then, discharged before Father can replace his St. Christopher medal. The lights all extinguish, the hospital staff continues to drop and fumble things and Margaret reminds everyone it is Friday the 13th. Klinger believes it is the Evil Eye: Igor has not drawn better than 2 pair since Friday!! So, Klinger is wearing a blue bead to ward off ... Written by
When an elderly Korean man is brought into camp, he resists treatment because he fears evil spirits. At this point, things go wrong. Potters cigarette lighter stops working, blood pressure machines malfunction, the PA system goes down, and lights go out in the Operation Room. The granddaughter of the old man tells Hawkeye that the only way to get the guy to agree to surgery is to purge the camp by way of an exorcism. Of course, Frank is aghast. He asks what the man upstairs is going to think and Potter says, "You mean General MacArthur!" Father Mulcahy, being such a cool character, sees God at work in mysterious ways. Of course, it's going to work out. Buy it or not!
