Storyline

Radar has a 4-day pass and Klinger is the temporary company clerk. Frank is very particularly cranky; he infuriates Potter when he calls Potter "old". Korean Army Hospital 426 needs two surgeons and supplies. Frank shoots off his big mouth again when he laughs at the idea of Col. Potter volunteering. A deck of playing cards decides the matter: Hawkeye and Potter pull the low cards, so they are going to the 426. Potter is adamant Hawkeye shall carry his sidearm; BJ "fills it with water" and brings it to the departing jeep. The 426 is in enemy territory and primitive; Major Choi, (Mako) is the ranking surgeon. Dr. Choi says they do the best they can with the available facilities. The work and hours are grueling; finally, Choi sends the doctors on their way, very grateful for the excellent work... and that they did not bring Ferret Face! On the ride home, Potter and Pierce find Klinger obligingly packed them a bottle. The doctors take on sniper fire and their jeep is hit...so they hit ... Written by LA-Lawyer

Trivia

The title comes from the World War One song "Over There," which is also known by its first lyric, "Johnny get your gun." The song was a propaganda song written to convince young American men to enlist. This song title is also the genesis of the title for the novel "Johnny Got His Gun," an anti-war novel written about World War One and published directly prior to World War Two. See more »

Potter Proves a Point
18 March 2015 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Captain Pierce and Colonel Potter head off to the front to help with wounded. Frank has been teasing the Colonel about his age. Frank is able to avoid going to help. Potter and Pierce do a bang up job in the middle of snipers and artillery shells. On the way back they get hammered and end up in a ditch. The jeeps is destroyed. Hawkeye is forced to use a gun which disgusts him. Anway, this is one of those episodes that is entirely predictable. There is a subplot where Klinger claims to be a gypsy, stolen by Lebanese parents when he was just child. Of course, it never works and he is forced to look for his next con.
