Colonel Lambert tells Drs. Pierce and McIntyre that among the items he can secure for them are 'the odd B-52.' The first B-52 entered US military service in June 1955, nearly two years after July 1953 armistice ended Korean War hostilities. See more »
Captains Pierce and McIntyre fell asleep in "The Swamp" in the beginning part of "The Incubator" after a rowdy party. They were ready to return to the medicine world. One thing came to mind: they were in search for an incubator. Lieutenant Colonel Henry Blake had other ideas: he had a barbecue grill for the 4077th. After some discussion, they wanted to speak with Captain Sloane about having an incubator in their unit. In his infinite wisdom, he spoke to the three of them about their Basic Equipment List -- from Manual Supply Requisition -- at the 4077th. Lieutenant Colonel Blake drew a sad face when he would not have his incubator; Captain Pierce acted in a sarcastic manner when griped about having a pizza oven or a jukebox for the unit.
In Act Two, Captains Pierce and McIntyre visited Sergeant Morris about an incubator. No Good!! He acted indifferent about handing over an incubator to the 4077th. He was more concerned about his ego than about his integrity. They visited another person about an incubator. He was supplying his own personal itinerary with toilet paper and fortune cookies ... as if he would open up his own country. They would receive the incubator for $1000 with freight and shipping costs. Their final recourse would be General Maynard Mitchell. Captains Pierce and McIntyre would harangue General Mitchell about the incubator. The military police officers would eventually arrest the two on various charges of misconduct.
Lieutenant Colonel Blake would scold them good for their improper misconduct at General Mitchell's press conference. Little they did knew that an infantry division company had their troops wounded in battle. With a little luck from Corporal O'Reilly obtained the magic item: the incubator. He worked his way to finding the item by dealing with the top brass; and in addition, fulfill some wheeling and dealing with other units to obtain the incubator lock, stock, and barrel. A Solid 12!! A++!! Hilarious and amusing from the 1973-1974 Television Season!! Enjoy!!
