A couple of plot lines. A conscripted young man finds refuge in the camp as the army tries to find him. Colonel Potter's horse disappears after the appearance of an old man who does the laundry. Potter is beside himself. He tells Radar that there is a connection between a man and his horse that is hard to duplicate. Klinger and Zale go through their usual confrontation as they insult one another. Klinger believes there is a price that Potter is willing to pay to give him a Section 8. This whole episode has to do with forms of payment. There is a really intense little scene as the Korean's come to the Swamp and try to find the missing soldier. Thanks to Charles, they are able to dissuade the Koreans.
