Frank buys one set of pearls for each of the women in his life: Margaret and his wife Lorraine. Radar helps Hawkeye recoup $3,000 in lost earnings, which Hawkeye gives to Father Mulcahy to benefit the orphans. But then the army wants the money back. Written by
When the peddler, Quoc, tries to sell his 'real' pearl necklaces, he says that the oysters worked for a year to produce the set he had. To generate pearls of that size, oysters incubate them for several years at least. In addition, matched strands of pearls are rarely ever completed in one cycle, but may take as much as ten years to acquire enough pearls of the same color and size for a necklace. See more »
It's Hawkeye's turn as paymaster. He fulfills his obligation with his usual panache, complaining about his lost practice. Radar does something and Hawkeye gets a bag with 3000 dollars in it. It makes him nervous, so he gives it to Mulcahy for the orphans. Unfortunately, someone from army finance shows up and wants it back. The other plots are Frank buying some cheap pearls for Margaret and some expensive ones for his wife. She becomes aware and plots revenge. There is also a poker game. One thing that is interesting is the stakes of these games. No limits, bets of 20 and 50 dollars. These people barely get paid. It doesn't even seem realistic.
