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
