But it's not much of a party for the surgeons when unexpected wounded guests show up; Charles tries to help a slovenly marine who has a billiard ball stuck in his mouth; Father Mulcahy inadvertently saves a man's life when he is presumed dead.

Back From the Dead!
3 May 2015 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

It's Halloween and everyone is ready to go to Rosie's costume party. The fun is circumvented by casualties. No sooner is a group dealt with than another shows up. Among the casualties is a man with a toe tag, signifying he is dead. Another issue is a bunch of idiot Marines who have gotten drunk and done all kinds of dangerous things. George Wendt (Norm on Cheers) has a number six pool ball stuck in his mouth. Many ghost stories are told and Charles scoffs. There are two really sad stories. One is a soldier who has stopped eating because while he went for seconds after a meal in a fox hole, all his buddies were killed by a mortar shell. The other has to do with the disposition of the dead man. Very well done.
