And now for the moment no-one has been waiting for: the Father Mulcahy sound-alike contest.
[Father Mulcahy passes him his hat]
My word, Hawkeye, this jocularity is most unseemly.

Cpl. Maxwell Klinger:
[imitating Mulcahy, in squeaky voice]
How can you make jokes at a time like this? Ooh.
[passes hat to Frank Burns]
Maj. Frank Burns:

The post-op is collapsing and the O.R. is on fire.
[passes hat to Margaret]

This episode from the early BJ era, is one of my favorites. No weighty storyline. No characters facing a moral dilemma. It's just a straight up comedy episode with lots of verbal humor and less of the broad comedy that was common in the Trapper John era.
The simple plot is that the camp has been grumpy and Potter hopes that movie night in the mess tent watching "My Darling Clementine" will cheer their spirits. Unfortunately, the film keeps breaking, so they entertain themselves by singing songs and doing impressions. It's really a charming episode and a nice change of pace from the more serious or heavily plotted story lines. Though the episodes from this era were generally pretty light, this particular one is a far cry from the dreary and preachy episodes that would be a staple of the series' final years.
