The usual banter in the O.R. turns rancid when Frank makes Nurse Ginger Bayliss cry. Hawkeye and Trapper react just as expected: they comfort their friend and then they cause Frank to go wee-wee in his cot. But, when the duo goes on to encase Frank's right hand in a hook and then, humiliate Margaret publicly, the Majors both demand immediate transfers. This is very funny until Henry transfers all of their work load onto Trapper and Hawkeye. Frank might not do much but Margaret is a highly competent head nurse who runs half the camp. It is incumbent upon the drunken duo to pull a fast one... quickly. How does one tap into the three basic human emotions: greed, fear and greed? And is Trapper correct: Does Radar really have the IQ of a house plant? Written by
