Army I Corp reports a big storm coming from Manchuria; Radar and Col. Potter plot how to batten down the hatches. But the storm grounds the chopper which was to take Boston butt to Seoul for his flight to Tokyo, his first R&R. Radar and Potter bribe Klinger into driving him into Seoul as the tantrums of Boston blow harder than the winds of Manchuria. Radar loses his guinea pig, Babette. The unlikely duo runs across a troop truck of injured Greek GIs; they are lost, but they help the Greeks to safety. Back at the 4077, Margaret feels guilty after Nurse Bigelow, at whom she just yelled, gets into an accident requiring Hawkeye to perform surgery. Boston is "too scared" to be left alone, so he and Klinger brave the storm in the makeshift shelter with the injured Greeks. The field duo pulls out all the stops to successfully remove a pleural effusion with no light and primitive tools. Too bad they did not have an Atlas. Written by

When Klinger and a Charles first get to the overturned truck and Klinger grabs the bags from their keep, the windstorm (supplied by fans) only blows the weeds nearest to him. The grass and trees further away don't sway at all. See more »
A terrible storm from Manchuria hits the MASH unit. There are two events taking place. One is Charles trying to get to Tokyo after his chopper is cancelled. He forces Klinger to drive him and on the way they get lost. On a road they come across three Greek soldiers who have overturned their jeep. They apply first aid and hunker down. Charles admits to being scared and he and Klinger start to bond. One of the men gets a collapsed lung and they need to do something they have never done before. Amazingly, they are able to do the job. Back at the camp, a water tower blows over with people on it and several are injured. Instead of a break in the wounded, they now have more than usual. This is a neat episode with lots of nice encounters. Oh, and Radar loses one of his Guinea pigs.
