Storyline

The 4077th is commended for achieving a 90% success rate. General Hammond reassigns Henry to an outpost in Tokyo leaving the second in-command, Major Frank Burns, in charge of camp. Right away Frank turns gung-ho, making everybody follow his rules, and he even takes away the still. Hawkeye, Trapper, Spearchucker and Radar plot together on how to bring back Henry and get rid of Frank. But will Henry leave his cushy new job with cushy new geishas? Written by <Explorerds6789>

Quotes

Henry Blake: [after receiving an award] You people, you great doctors and you swell gals, who made this possible, are just too numerous to mention, but I'm mighty grateful to all of you - right down to my Right Hand, Cpl. Radar O'Reilly, who incidentally is in command of this unit, and just uses me as a front.
[Henry laughs nervously as everyone else stands stone-faced]

For Love of Henry!
21 February 2015 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Frank is actually the star here, in a very negative way. When Henry is sent to Tokyo to assist General Hammond, the people who got him there, his amazing surgeons, are left with Frank Burns as their commanding officer. Of course, he goes for the kill. Reveille, calisthenics, no still, and so on. Larry Linville plays the obnoxious Major with great aplomb, sounding like an utter tyrant. It's time to act and the guys cook up a scheme to bring him back. This is an average episode which still makes it better than a lot of television. McLean Stevenson did a nice job of using that delicate balance between beloved boss and bumbling buffoon (for you alliteration fans).
