The title references Father's Day which is a day honoring fathers, celebrated on the third Sunday of June in 52 countries similar to the Mother's Day celebration.

Margaret's father Colonel "Howitzer" Al Houlihan visits the 4077th, despite the fact that Margaret had earlier implied to Henry Blake that her father was dead. See more »
Howitzer "Al" Houlihan comes to the camp. He is now retired military and has take a civilian job. Even though he stops to see his daughter, he treats her in the coldest of ways. She has been on cloud nine (though she is driving everyone nuts), an can't please the guy. There is also incredible tension because he is really annoyed at the way Pierce and Hunnicutt are dressed. He is in their faces (one of the interesting things that comes across over and over is the fact the Hawkeye and B.J. couldn't put away their confrontational garb for a day or so out of respect for Margaret). Still, he seems to be full of anger about life in general. Anyway, there is more to his problem than meets the eye. It takes some intervention from Potter to get to the bottom of things.
