Survivors of last night's 3-day party are barely able to fall in for roll call...most are falling over instead. The peace talks at Panmunjom are not going as well as they were expected. Only Margaret is happy because she and Donald finally have a date in Tokyo next weekend so they can hold their own marital peace talks. Radar is surprised he still has his spleen when he hands Margaret a telegram 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. "Sub-moronic fruitcake" or not, the anti-green peace delegate gets a welcome ... Written by

Come on, join hands. Everybody join hands and say, 'Howdy!' Come on. It's just one little word. You mean you can't even get together on one little word? What's the matter here? I don't understand. You know what to do why can't you just do it? People are dying out there! You've got to stop it! You can't wait anymore! You can't!
