Henry is drinking bi-carb as he listens to the griping of Hermann Goering in drag, (Hotlips) going on and on about putting a poor little nurse on bed arrest. Radar tells Henry an enemy attack is imminent; Henry regards it as the best news of the day. The nurses are taking the patients to the 44th Field Hospital and the men will be left to fend for themselves and try to fight off the enemy paratroopers. The guys gain new, genuine appreciation for the nurses; they miss them, especially when they have to do their jobs. The 4077 nurses made it all look so easy--the guys find out how hard their jobs really are. Will the nurses return from the cushy 44th Evac? Will they miss the guys at 4077...even half as much as the guys miss them? Written by LA-Lawyer

We Serve at the Pleasure of the Doctors
6 March 2015 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

The old meat market continues. Due to an impending invasion, the nurses are sent to another unit until it blows over. The male in the camp drop immediately into depression. Their counterparts who are mostly there to provide companionship have them dragging their tails. I don't know how long they are gone, but it seems like a couple days. They hang around the officer's club, drowning their sorrows. Hawkeye and his dry martini lines are not all that funny. I always thought that Loudon Wainwright, III would have made a good recurring character, but this is one of his few appearances. Anyway, somehow they manage to get by a couple days without being serviced. I wonder how women feel about this show. There is also an element of cruelty in the treatment of Frank that goes beyond dislike. But I get it. It is comedy and he is a bigger than life character.
