Margaret, a Rabbit, and a Guy With a Gun, 1 April 2015
Author: Hitchcoc from United States

Margaret believes herself to be pregnant. This is hard because at this time it meant she was done with the army. In order to check her out, the guys need a female rabbit. This was the foolproof method of knowing at the time. Of course, Radar has a little zoo and it would mean the death of the rabbit. Other things going on include a patient who was injured at the front who is refusing to go back. He actually takes Winchester hostage at gunpoint. When Klinger exchanges himself for Charles as a means of getting out of the army (again!) there is a very comedic series of events. There is a bittersweet moment with Hawkeye and Margaret. Nice episode.
