Trivia

Father Mulcahy tries to calm the patient by repeatedly calling out "bung jau! bung jau!" which he believes means "peace and friendship" but, according to Radar's report, means "the news of your daughter's pregnancy brings great joy to our village." In fact, "bung jau" is a Cantonese slang term for the male sexual organ. See more »

Goofs

Radar's report includes a request by Klinger for a new brassiere. However, the dress was spaghetti strap and no bra strap was there. Furthermore, it was obvious that Klinger was not wearing a bra, not even a strapless one. See more »

Quotes

Lt. Col. Henry Blake: All right, let's have it. What's wrong with Klinger?
Maj. Frank Burns: What's wrong with Klinger? A soldier stands in your office in an evening gown and you ask what's wrong with him?

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.
