There's Gold in Them Thar Hills
23 February 2015 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Granted this isn't the world's greatest episode. The title reference is to Humphrey Bogart's character in "The Treasure of the Sierra Madre." He lusted after gold, just like Frank did in this offering. When the guys put a cast with a curved piece of metal coming out of it on Frank's arm, he has had enough and pushes Henry into letting him have a transfer. When Frank and Margaret get together in her tent, a recording is made and played to the whole camp. If Frank were a real character, Hawkeye and Trapper could be accused of being sadists. It would be interesting if some of this stuff happened to them. Anyway, it is a comedy, and the way the two Captains draw Frank back in (because now they have both drawn double duty until Frank is relieved) is to make it seem that there is gold near the camp. He is set up and needs to get back in the fold so he can get the gold. The conclusion goes way beyond necessity. These guys that seem to not have any time to rest expend a lot of energy in superfluous pursuits.
