Margaret is on late duty; she is relieved by Nurse Able in the wee hours. Klinger is on guard duty as Margaret walks to her tent. She is approached by a young Korean girl who says her mother is in labor and, in seconds, Margaret goes with her. Within minutes, Klinger goes off duty and straight to sleep. The following morning, Colonel Potter needs Margaret and Radar scours the camp looking for her--even in the nurse's shower--and he calls the MPs: no one has seen Margaret. Frank grabs a gun and shoots it. Colonel Potter prefers Intelligence: but that means Colonel Flagg (Edward Winter). Flagg is impersonating a Chinese double agent, Ling Chow. It's a comedy of errors: the men and women of the 4077 (and unwanted guest) are shot and hobbling, worried or in the "constant state of utter confusion" in which one of them keeps himself. Is Col. Flagg really "the Wind"? And, has Flagg ever really worked as a showgirl at The Sands, Las Vegas? Written by
Hawkeye is pretending to play for the Celtics and refers to the cheerleaders celebrating a good shot he has just made. However, the Boston Celtics have never had cheerleaders and only recently (2007) added a dance team. See more »

My father touched me that way once. To this day he still has to wear orthopedic shirts.

Margaret disappears from the camp. Actually, Klinger knows where she went, but doesn't get the message out. This leads to an all-out search for her. When that fails I-corps is notified and who should be sent but Colonel Flagg. The one liners abound. I love listening to Flagg tell of his experiences. I also enjoy the constant threats he makes when people don't listen to his drivel. Frank puts his arm around him "buddy" style and he says: "My father put his arm around me like that. He spent the rest of his life wearing orthopedic shirts." It is priceless. The whole thing about being show girl in Las Vegas is matchless. Anyway, there are probably three episodes I would never miss and this is one of them.
