Several wild events happen during a nice spring day in Korea. First, a marine who Hawkeye performs surgery on feels beholden to him. Next, Radar falls for a nurse who's main interest is poetry. Then Klinger receives a letter from his girl Laverne who agrees to marry him. Finally, a young soldier in a catatonic state and with no tags wanders into post-op with a strange fixation for a kitten.

Did You Know?
guest stars in this episode as Marine Lyle Wesson, who shows his appreciation for Hawkeye's saving his life by doing various over-the-top favors, one of which was picking up Major Burns and swinging him around Col. Blake's office after Burns mouthed off to Hawkeye one too many times. After this incident, Hawkeye chastises Wesson, to which Wesson replies, "Lyle bad. Do bad things." This references the part he played in Mel Brooks' Blazing Saddles
(1974), which opened in theaters the same year this episode aired. See more
When Radar mentions the movie that is playing in camp that week, he mentions that it is a Godzilla movie. However, since this supposedly takes place in 1952 it couldn't be due to the fact that Godzilla did not debut until two years later in 1954. See more

Oh, no, you don't want to do that - I'm very boring, and besides, I write everything in prescription.
