When Radar describes going through Klinger's tent, the colonel asks if "this Corporal Klinger" is a nurse. However, army nurses automatically received officers' ranks when they joined up, therefore a corporal would not be a nurse. One would think the colonel would have been aware of this. See more »
Frank (and Margaret) seem to have a lot of power when it comes to bringing charges against their adversaries. The episode starts out with Pierce charged with mutiny. It's the old Potter's away and the cat will play thing, with Frank going crazy while in command for six days. The first part of the episode involves a poker game where 300 dollars was lost by Sgt. Zale. Because Frank had declared gambling illegal, Zale can't admit to losing it that way and he implicates his fellow poker players. Frank institutes a full search of the camp and finds nothing. Finally, two sides of an incident in the O.R. are brought up in testimony. Frank's rendition makes him look like both a doctor and a saint as he tries to do two patients at the same time, act as a chaplain, and as an anesthesiologist. He is then sedated so he won't require more and more out of the other doctors (who are totally incompetent). We eventually get Hawkeye's view of the events. One fair statement is that we get to see what a great actor Larry Linville was. We hate Frank but only because Linville did such a magnificent job.
