Episode cast overview:


"I" Company aid station sustained heavy shelling; 4077 are to provide trained personnel until replacements arrive. A surgeon was KIA, and they need a cutter, scrub nurse and a corpsman. Hotlips volunteers. The doctors draw sausages and Hawkeye is drafted; Fr. Mulcahy picks Klinger's card for corpsman duty. Everyone is scared to death; they cover with jokes. Grumpy calls Snow White to check in; the conditions are appalling. There is no roof and no running water; few of the walls are standing. Even Klinger gets "hands on" and Margaret is promoted to actual cutting. The trio works so hard, they each sleep happily on their mats. Back at the 4077, lonely Radar sleeps in Hawkeye's bunk; Henry drinks gin and frets. At the aid station, Margaret is jubilant: they did it! They made chaos orderly and achieved the 8th wonder. On the ride home, Hawkeye makes a sweet confession to Margaret. Klinger dons his best bonnet. Be it ever so much like an upholstered toilet, there's no place like home. Written by LA-Lawyer

At the Front with Respect
7 March 2015 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

This is a much better episode than some of the previous ones. The action involves a call from a combat unit at the front. Henry has to enlist a doctor, a nurse, and a corpsman to help with a unit that is taking heavy casualties. Their surgeon has been killed. Hawkeye, Margaret, and Klingor are sent against their wishes. Still they do an admirable job while back at the 4077 the doctors are complaining about insignificant things. The threesome at the front begin to develop a true respect for one another. With Frank back causing problems at the camp, Margaret and Hawkeye are able to put the pettiness aside. Nothing happens with them, but Frank is beside himself. The conclusion is quite nicely done.
