Linda Sue: [Recording belonging to Radar] Hi there, Radar, this is Linda Sue. Coming to you from the glass booth of Holtzman's department store. Everything is real good here, and being as how you and I are engaged, I think you should be the first to know. I'm going to marry Elroy Fimple.

Radar is cast as a man who had a fiancée back in Otumwa who has sent him a drugstore Dear John recording. Later, I believe, Radar's past is restructured and made different, but for now, he lapses into depression. Trapper and Hawkeye decide to find him a girlfriend, but as is usually the case, the women on the post will not even look at him. One day a pretty young nurse come and Radar is totally taken, but he is far from her intellectual equal. She reads classic literature, philosophy, and loves classical music. The guys try to get Radar up to speed enough so they can at least talk a bit. Once Margaret and Frank get wind of this, Houlihan pulls the plug on the "affair." It is strictly vindictive. The boys then launch a full frontal assault on the rendezvous between Frank and Margaret. It is funny, but in the final evaluation, is there any future for Radar and Lieutenant Anderson.
