Storyline

Hawkeye leads a Mess mutiny against a river of liver and an ocean of fish; Henry gives him a semi-private chewing out for the mess in Mess. As Hawkeye idly plays with the office skeleton, Henry uses the word "rib." A light bulb illuminates and leads to some of the most complicated, precision maneuvers since WWII and Operation Overlord. Everyone has had a "taste" for a particular food or meal that cannot be satisfied by anything less than the actual food... and it is usually requires some effort. But, Hawkeye's craving is 20,000 miles away! Will Hawkeye get his special meal, and his special sauce? Written by LA-Lawyer
