When BJ is talking about Erin, he says "I can't believe it's been almost a year..." Earlier, in {"A War For All Seaons" (#9.6) } we see that 1950 makes place for 1951, which turns into 1952. So BJ has been in Korea for well over a year. See more »

Quotes

Capt. B.J. Hunnicut: You want to know about my home life so you ask me what I do in the morning?
Hawkeye: Oh did I say home? I'm sorry, no, I meant the people. The people - people IN the home. I mean, what's a home without people? Just a big house with a dog in it. Don't let me interrupt you. Go ahead. What do you do first thing in the morning?
Capt. B.J. Hunnicut: I open my eyes. That is generally followed by yawning and getting out of bed. Now stop me if this is getting too exciting for you.
Hawkeye: No, no, this is great. What do you do then?

Good to Have Friends
25 April 2015 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

There are three plot lines at work here. First of all, B.J. is depressed because it is his anniversary and he is stuck in Korea again. His longings are frequently fodder for shows. He can be both a sad and an angry man. While he mopes around, the rest of his friends are working on a plan. In the second plot line, Charles had gone to look at another MASH unit to evaluate their conditions. It turns out it is a cesspool and Charles pulls no punches, so to speak, when he sends in his findings. A major from that camp comes and tries to reason with him, but when he proves unyielding, the guy punches him, knocking out a tooth. Charles is utterly embarrassed by being done in by this guy and not defending himself. The third item is a little Korean boy who has been hit in the leg by shrapnel. His grandfather tells the doctors that the boy has lost his mother, his father may be dead, and they no longer have a home. To make matters worse, he was given a harmonica by a GI and it was left behind when they escaped. All the factors come into play at the end, as if choreographed. A little maudlin and pat but quite emotional, to say the least.
