While on leave in Seoul, Frank finally cracks up over Margaret's marriage and starts hunting her and Donald down, accosting every female who bears even a passing resemblance to her. Unfortunately, it couldn't come at a worse time as the 4077th is inundated with casualties. Potter then makes a call to Tokyo and requests a surgeon to come in to fill in while the MPs hunt for Frank. They eventually find one in the person of Major Charles Emerson Winchester III, whose surgical skills match his arrogance, causing Hawkeye and BJ to take an immediate dislike to him. Eventually, Frank is transferred out and Winchester becomes a permanent member of the 4077 surgical staff. Now, Winchester must adjust not only to what he sees as inferior surgical conditions, but to the lunacy of Hawkeye and BJ. Written by

The title refers to movie directions to the close and open a scene thus alluding to the transition from Major Burns to Major Winchester. The Broadway musical "Fade Out - Fade In" opened at the Mark Hellinger Theater on May 20, 1964, ran for 271 performances, starred Carol Burnett and Jack Cassidy and had music written by Jule Styne and lyrics and book by Betty Comden and Adolph Green.

When Winchester is in the Officers Club before he is scheduled to leave he is talking to Igor (played by Jeff Maxwell) but the voice coming out of Igor's mouth is that of Johnny Haymer, who plays Sgt. Zale. See more »
[Hawkeye is talking to Major Burns on the phone, presumably for the last time]
Best of luck to you, too, Frank.
[Hawkeye hangs up phone, then takes it and throws it out the door]
Hey, I'm responsible for that!
[runs out door to retrieve phone]
Capt. B.J. Hunnicut:
You seem a trifle irked.
The Army, in its infinite wisdom, has not only cleared Frank of all charges, they have assigned him to a Veterans' hospital in Indiana, and promoted him to Lt. Colonel.

Really? I was just notified that I have to have post a minimum of ten lines of supercalifragilisticexpialidocious to post a simple comment about this M*A*S*H episode about how Winchester's scarf is tucked in and loose throughout the scene with Radar greeting him! I need a job doing this...I'm good. And they also threatened to delete my account if I fill this feed with jiberish. So stop reading at this point because it is useless information. I am unemployed and had a great job for seven and a half years as a Production Manager for an accredited provider of medical education. I have extensive experience in the medical information field. If anyone has any leads, I'd love to be back to work! Thanks!!!
