Only Margaret is happy: she and Donald finally have a date in Tokyo next weekend so they can hold their own marital peace talks. Radar is surprised his spleen is intact when he hands Margaret a telegram from Donald but his office door is a gone pecan. The camp mood is foul: Potter threatens the next person to snap at the Padre and is chagrined when he is that person. Everyone is exhausted. When Colonel Potter announces the Army increased the mandatory rotation points for discharge from 36 to 45, it hits long-time surgeon, Hawkeye, like a pile driver. Then, his pal Margaret announces her bad news; it all combines to send Hawkeye into a red rage. He pulls one of his zany stunts and ends up making the entire 4077 feel brighter.

The War Drags On
5 April 2015 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Hawkeye goes on one of those hard to believe missions. He invades peace talks. Margaret decides to divorce her two-timing husband. Considering there could never be something as dramatic as what Pierce does, he does it and they throw a party for him. One of his complaints is that everyone wears green. They all dye their hair read and wear red clothing. Potter looks like a leprechaun. Sometimes the get so caught up in the anti- war thing that they kind of jump the shark. It's interesting, generally, how much partying goes on in this place. Hawkeye and his attitude are really on display here. I just didn't like this episode.
