Trapper and Hawkeye treat Colonel Buzz Brighton (Leslie Nielson), a seemingly OK guy, for a bullet wound in the leg. Buzz is what Hawkeye calls a "ring banger," the gung-ho quarterback who has to stay in the game: no matter the cost. According to his Army service record, Buzz racked up twice as many casualties while gaining only half the ground; this fact alone makes Hawkeye and Trapper want to bench this QB. Hotlips, on the other hand, is dazzled by his reputation and his good looks. Can the doctors pull off the "Gaslight" of the century and send Buzz reeling, packing and rolling? Will Frank ever learn to keep his pumps in his footlocker? Will Hotlips have her way with Buzz? Written by
