Hawkeye is angry when the Army increases the points needed for a discharge. In reality, the Army stopped using the point system after World War II, and was never available for rotation of surgeons. See more »


Captain Benjamin Franklin Pierce: 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!

Matters In Captain Piercer's Hands!!
23 July 2007 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

The opening clip of "Peace On Us" had everyone quite restless about the ongoing war. Colonel Potter gave everyone the disappointing news about the war trudging on mercilessly -- all because of inaction at Panmunjomb. Nothing was going well for everyone at the 4077th. Major Houlihan -- for a while -- had some good news during this trying time; she would met Donald Penobscott in Tokyo on a weekend ... much to the disgust of Captains Pierce and Hunnicutt during breakfast.

Corporal O'Reilly sent the mail into Major Houlihan's tent. Without warning, incoming choppers arrived at the 4077th for another round of surgery. From there, Captain Pierce was angry about the endless war during surgery -- all while tending to the other patients. The three of them acted in disgust after ten hours of surgery. Naturally, Colonel Potter had each of them wearing a smile to improve morale.

Towards the end of Act One, Colonel Potter had told the three surgeons in "The Swamp" they needed forty-five points to earn an honorable discharge from the Army. By the same token, Major Houlihan and Captain Pierce were kicking every item in the camp. She cried in humiliation because her husband transferred himself to San Francisco; Captain Pierce would drive to Panmujomb to tell the delegates to stop the war. Little to everyone's surprise, Captain Pierce arrived at the peace talks to tell the delegates to end this war. And at the same time, one of the United Nations Delegate Members had trouble with his gastritis.

In Act Two, everyone in camp held a party on behalf of Captain Pierce for speaking to the peace delegates. Everyone dyed their clothes and their hair in a cheery red color -- not the typical red color symbolizing blood from surgery and soldiers in the battle. Major Goss chastised Captain Pierce for his stunt he pulled at the peace talks; however, he did not act too harshly at him for his determination in treating his patient. After all, everyone wanted to go home from this endless war in Korea. The end result: A 10.3!! "A++"
