Goofs

When Frank is fooling around with his gun just before shooting B.J., he pulls the slide back and it locks in the open position. On a Model 1911 pistol, that can only happen if the magazine is empty. He could not have shot B.J. with an unloaded gun. See more »

Quotes

Colonel Flagg: You were insanely jealous of her engagement. You were furious at being rejected. You were capable of murder!
Hawkeye: That's right! So you hit her over the head with a blunt instrument.
B.J.: A saxophone.
Hawkeye: Then you hypnotized her and told her she was Johnny Ray.
B.J.: Then you performed plastic surgery on her, made her look like Johnny.
Hawkeye: The rest is obvious. You stuck her in a trunk, you mailed her to Las Vegas, and now she's doing two shows a night at The Sands.
B.J.: Three on Saturdays.

Great episode, only MASH episode that rivalled this in terms of humour IMO was Adam's Ribs .Flagg is defimitely one of those less is more characters, he made more of an impact due to his relatively few appearances on the show. Especially like the looks on Frank, BJ and Hawkeye's faces when Flagg tells them he was a showgirl at the Sands in Vegas. Pity Edward Winter went relatively young he was a great comedy actor, particularly liked his scenes with Alan Alda and Larry Linville. Season 5,IMO, was the peak of the show, but Linville, I feel, was right to quit when he did, Frank 's ineptness was starting to become annoying rather than funny
