For advice on healing Potter's horse, B.J. calls his father-in-law who lives in Quapaw, Oklahoma. Mike Farrell's wife at that time was Judy Farrell who was born in Quapaw. Also, his father-in-law is named "Floyd Hayden" in this episode; "Hayden" is Judy Farrell's real maiden name. See more »
During Margaret's surgery the doctors and nurses are using sterile latex gloves. Latex gloves weren't developed and put into use until the 1960s. See more »
Once again Potter leaves and Frank is left in charge. Just before departure, Margaret shows symptoms of appendicitis. Frank sees this as an opportunity to get back in Margaret's favor. But Margaret wants Hawkeye to perform the surgery. The Colonel is also worried about Sophie, his horse, which is under Radar's care. But suddenly, the horse is found lying in its stall. The guys don't know what to do, so they call B. J.'s father- in-law in Oklahoma. The solution is quite a project (she is clogged up if you get my drift). Of course, Margaret's appendix finally makes an appearance. The final scene is quite fun. A cute episode. A subplot is Klinger trying to use depression as a method of getting his Section 8.
