Klinger tries to bribe Colonel Potter, but Potter is more concerned with the disappearance of his horse, Sophie. Meanwhile, Hawkeye and B.J. try to hide a man who is about to be drafted into the Korean army.
When Cho Pak and his daughter, Sun, pick up the Colonel's laundry, Potter wants to do a physical on the ancient cavalry man, but Cho Pak refuses. Klinger tries to bribe Col. Potter into giving him a Section 8. A 16 year old Korean teenager, Ham, is on the run from the ROK; he is discovered in Hotlip's shower; this time, her bath towel is green. The Swamp Rats hide Ham; they approach "Hairy Mary" (Klinger), for a cute dress to disguise him. Col. Potter and Radar are frantic: Sophie is missing; her saddle is left in the empty paddock. ROK officers storm The Swamp looking for deserters. The next day, Sophie appears, ridden by Cho Pak, who is resplendent, if not ashen, in his old cavalry uniform. Ham tells the surgeons his grandfather used to tell him stories of the famous Korean Army Field Colonel, Cho Pak, the war hero who saved their village. There is conversation between Potter and Sun; afterwards, the two war heroes solemnly and respectfully bow to one other. Radar tells Col. Potter,... Written by
I'm not sure its because I lost my father a few years ago, but the more I watch Mr Morgans performances the more I realise what great men some of the pre war generation were.
In this episode he gives up his beloved horse Sophie, so an ex Korean commander turned laundry man can find respect and die in peace. Henry Morgan does nothing more than hood his eyes as his character sees a fellow old soldier, same age, same rank, same love of horses and realises "there but the grace of god"
Its a performance to behold and I truly love the repeats I just wish Comedy Central would loose the laughter track
