Storyline

Every week, one of Radar's duties is to prepare the 4077 Weekly Report. This week, Radar highlights the Chinese POW who went berserk in the O.R. and held everyone at scalpel point, nearly killing Trapper's patient. Lt. Erika Johnson, the new nurse, tried to stop the POW. Corp. Klinger, the one who actually brought down the POW (and lost his best brassiere in the process) is the big hero. But, Maj. Burns and Maj. Houlihan complained about Klinger; forcing Henry to request a divisional psychiatrist to evaluate Klinger. Enter Maj. Milton "Sidney" Freedman, psychiatrist and compatriot. Trapper's patient dies, and even he goes a little berserk as he watches the Chinese POW healing nicely. Henry calls it a slow week. Will Klinger sign a document professing to be a homosexual transvestite in order to get his Section 8? Written by LA-Lawyer

Trivia

Radar's titular "Weekly Activity Report and Personnel Record" featured in this episode was for the time period "17 October - 22 October, inclusive, 1951". See more »

Goofs

In his report, Radar refers to the psychiatrist who comes to examine Klinger as "Milton Freedman." In all future appearances, the character is called "Sidney Freedman." (This was probably done to avoid confusion with the Nobel Prize winner Milton Friedman.) See more »

Quotes

Cpl. Walter Eugene 'Radar' O'Reilly: [voice over] Father Mulcahy tried to calm the prisoner by saying "bung-chow" believing it meant "peace and friendship." Unfortunately, it really means "your daughter's pregnancy brings much joy to our village."

Hawkeye in Love
24 February 2015 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

This is a really good episode as Radar types up a weekly report. This is yet another way to string together a series of somewhat unrelated events. First of all, a North Koren patient, frightened and brainwashed, gets a scalpel and stabs a couple people (minor injuries), but most significantly knocks over the last pint of AB Negative blood and interrupts Trapper's efforts to save a patient (he later dies). Trapper is conflicted. While this is going on, Hawkeye falls in love with a beautiful nurse and jumps to the conclusion that she feels the same way. Next, we have Frank and Margaret making about their fiftieth foray into Henry's office to ask him to get rid of Max Klinger, who they call a pervert. Henry calls in psychiatrist Milton Friedman (in later episodes, his first name is Sidney) to evaluate the hairy Lebanese. Friedman is willing to let him leave the army, but the discharge would say "transvestite" and "homosexual." One interesting thing that has actually happened before is that Trapper is more grounded and serious than Hawkeye who is so full of himself he fails to see what his friend is going through. Good writing.
