Storyline

After Hawkeye makes an insulting remark about Margaret, Frank snaps him with a towel and Hawkeye responds with a nicely placed right cross to Frank's eye. Hawkeye is then placed under house arrest and instead of being treated like a criminal, he is treated like a conquering hero for what he did even to the point of getting some very tasty water buffalo steak and having movies shown in the Swamp. In the meantime, Colonel Reese, the woman in charge of all the nurses in Korea, arrives to observe Margaret and her staff and, for some strange reason, becomes attracted to Frank and tries to seduce him. Also, Radar begins acting very strangely, even having the hem in his pants let out two inches. Written by Brian Washington <Sargebri@att.net>

Once Again the Royal Treatment

Frank snaps Hawkeye with a towel. Hawkeye slugs him. He is put under house arrest pending a court martial. So we have Mr. Pacifist hauling off and sucker punching another man. Of course, because the man was Frank Burns, he receives accolades from the whole camp. Instead of eating the food the other men eat, the cook fixes him a steak. When a Gene Tierney movie show up, it is projected in the Swamp, their living quarters. He even receives a Red Cross box, normally sent to prisoners of war. Frank really has a right to be angry and want vengeance. His act was silly but harmless. There are two subplots in the deus ex machina world where no one ever pays a price for anything. The first is the arrival of a Head Supervisor of Nurses, a virago who is hot to trot. Margaret is scared to death of what will happen when she arrives. She is anything but professional. Radar, meanwhile, orders elevator shoes and longer pants. The conclusion to this episode is typical. Frank pays a price for doing nothing.
