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 very 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 Major 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 just to get a Section 8? Written by LA-Lawyer

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

When Henry Blake calls Klinger into his office to discuss the charges brought against him by Majors Burns and Houlihan, Klinger is wearing the red spaghetti-strap dress that was already damaged by the Chinese P.O.W. However, if you look closely, the strap has been tied together where it was cut. See more »

Quotes

Lt. Col. Henry Blake: Corporal Klinger, this is Major Freedman, divisional psychiatrist.
Cpl./Sgt. Maxwell Q. Klinger: Major sir!
[curtsies wearing a frilly pink dress]
Dr. Sidney Freedman: You got me up here to ask me about him? About that?
Lt. Col. Henry Blake: Yeah well, you see, it really wasn't my idea.
Dr. Sidney Freedman: All the way from Seoul to ask me what? Whether he needs a girdle under that? Whether his seams are straight?... OK, OK. It's all part of the war, I guess.
[picks up a clipboard and looks at Klinger]
Dr. Sidney Freedman: I have a few questions to ask you. Sit down, soldier.
Cpl./Sgt. Maxwell Q. Klinger: Yes sir!

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.
