Goofs

When Margaret is reading the letter to Radar, she refers to Gogi Grant's "The Wayward Wind" as one of the letter writer's favorite tunes. The song, which was a #1 hit, was not released until 1956, three years after the end of the Korean War. See more »

Quotes

Corporal Walter Eugene O'Reilly: [groggy] It's under the back porch.
Lt. Colonel Henry Blake: Radar, we don't have a back porch.
Corporal Walter Eugene O'Reilly: Oh, I'm sorry sir. I'll order you one in the morning.

Back to Some Serious Issues
6 March 2015 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

There are two pretty serious things going on here. A young man is brought into the camp suffering from paralysis. There seems to be nothing wrong with him physically, but something has happened to him on the battlefield. Hawkeye calls Sidney Friedman and he suggests a tough love approach to this guy. It is out of character for Pierce to use these techniques on anyone except maybe Frank. Speaking of Frank, he and Margaret are their usual obstructionist selves.

The second plot has to do with Radar being bitten by a camp dog and being forced to undergo a series of rabies shots. Everyone looks for the dog because the shots have a really serious effect on Radar. There are some nice scenes between Margaret and Radar as she reads a letter to him. Sometimes it is nice to soften the edges of the villains. Margaret will be developed a lot more in the future of this series.
