Maj. Margaret "Hot Lips" Houlihan: You'll work with them a lot better when you start treating them like people.

Hawkeye and Charles Put Their Respective Feet in Their Mouths
11 April 2015 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

A beautiful young doctor from Sweden, Inga, with incredible credentials comes to the camp. Of course, Hawkeye immediately begins to put moves on her. He is wallowing in his overwhelming sexism and totally ignores her accomplishments. As it turns out, Inga is way too much woman for him. She is self assured, professional, and confused by the come-ons by Hawkeye. His big evening is ruined when she doesn't take his advances seriously. She even outdoes him at the operating table. All the others are amazed at her prowess, but Hawkeye's center-of-attention game is stepped on. Hawkeye can't really accept the fact that a woman can do his job even better than he does. When it comes to romance, she takes the lead as well. He finally gets the treatment from her that he dishes out when he is pursuing someone.
