Storyline

The original Swamp Rats (Spearchucker, Trapper and Hawkeye) are happy for their CO when Radar reads the telegram from Gen. Hammond. The 4077 has the best and highest efficiency rating (90%) of all the M*A*S*H units in Korea and Henry is receiving a citation. But with the citation comes a promotion in Tokyo, leaving Frank in charge. Like the other Huns, Frank has no consideration for the officers, NCOs or enlisted men. He expects Radar to work past 2 a.m., and then he orders reveille at dawn, calisthenics and snap inspections. Then Frank gets really mean: he steals the still. Desperate times scream incessantly for desperate measures. Thank MacArthur that doctors are trained to measure... Written by LA-Lawyer

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).
