Of all the gin joints, in all the towns, in all the world... Lt. Carlye Walton had to walk into Hawkeye's. Carlye (Blythe Danner) is the one who got away; during Hawkeye's residency in Boston, the young nurse and resident lived together. Carlye left him because she knew how much Hawkeye loved medicine; she foolishly considered his passion for being a surgeon some sort of competition where there are winners and losers. BJ does not judge his pal but answers truthfully that he has never been tempted to cheat on Peggy. Col. Potter is recruiting art subjects; he does one in charcoal of Radar and another of Klinger as an Olympian. Written by
Col. Potter is seen painting Klinger. He paints all of the camp regulars in different episodes over time. While this is the first time he is seen painting a castmate there is a picture of Radar already on the wall. See more »
Captain Pierce noticed something odd about a past fling with a woman in nursing school. Captain Hunnicutt was also unaware about the nurse in question. They both arrived at the 4077th as permanent nurses. Captain Pierce -- in his unusual manner -- noticed his past fling. Nurse Carlye Wilton was assigned to the 4077th to work in unit. She entered "The Swamp" as Captain Pierce invited her inside for a conversation. Captain Pierce was surprised to learn that she was engaged to a Lieutenant in the Navy. This result was just an introduction of Captain Pierce would know about her.
Nurse Wilton -- in Part Two -- of "The More I See You" realized that any association with Captain Pierce was mainly professional in detail. He told her that surgery was not like a formal dinner party ... for which she could rearrange the dinner table setting to her liking. She would have Captain Pierce when she was assigned to his table during surgery. Later in the episode, Captain Pierce invited her to the mine fields for a drink. Captain Pierce had also asked Captain Hunnicutt if he had been tempted to cheat on his wife. Captain Hunnicutt did not believe that infidelity was proper in any way, shape, or form.
The turning point came at the end of the episode. Nurse Wilton was asking for a transfer to another unit. Corporal O'Reilly told Captain Pierce -- indirectly -- that she wanted to work in another unit to avoid friction from the likes of Captain Pierce. She felt uncomfortable of working along side with Captain Pierce. She also felt pressure of talking about a divorce from her husband. He wanted to commit to her socially; however, he was committing to himself. She realized his work would be the biggest part of his life ... because of his commitment to saving lives in the long run. A Brilliant 10!!
