When Margaret and Col. Blake are having a drink in the office, Margaret makes a comment that Henry reminds her of her father before he died. She was obviously drunk and not entirely aware of what she was saying, because in later seasons, Margaret makes other references to her father, and in Season 9, the episode "Father's Day" has her father coming to visit.

Margaret Houlihan receives a letter from a friend who is married and rich, with the same guy Margaret rejected. She now realizes that her life is empty. All the things her friend has have eluded her. She decides to change her life by asking for a transfer. Trapper, Hawkeye, and Henry try to get her to reconsider, using the same methods that have driven her to this point. She even considers Frank Burns Army issue. She calls him Ferret Face at one point. Their discussion as she drops the bomb on him is priceless. What follows is a Margaret who gets loaded and begins to act like every stereotypical drunk you've ever seen. It is still pretty hilarious as the guys try to sober her up before a battalion of Marines send their casualties. She actually bonds with her adversaries and what's interesting is that there is no carry over from this into the next episode. She and Frank start up where they left off.
