Storyline

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 MP's hunt for Frank. They eventually find one in the person of the very arrogant Major Charles Emerson Winchester III, who's 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 Brian Washington <Sargebri@att.net>

Trivia

Major Winchester was stationed in Tokyo before he was transferred to the 4077. His commanding officer, Col. Baldwin, sent him for a 48-hour stay (annoyed because he owed Winchester $672.17. for losses in cribbage), but Potter asked for Winchester to be permanently reassigned. When Baldwin visited the 4077th later, Winchester let Baldwin win his money back, hoping to go back with him to Tokyo. See more »

Goofs

When Major Winchester's Jeep is hit by mortar, it is clearly undamaged, but in the close up, it is on fire. No additional mortar fire is heard or seen after the shot that hits the Jeep. See more »

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!!!
