Radar receives a "Dear John" recording on 45 RPM from his fiancee, Linda Sue. He is so distraught, he cannot eat or sleep and makes hash of the 4077 requisitions and reports. Henry, Hawkeye and Trapper are so concerned, they put Radar through a physical. They quickly learn: Radar has a 1-A body and a 4-F brain. When pretty Lt. Louise Anderson visits the 4077, Radar is smitten. Hawkeye helps Louise unpack to learn about her literary and musical tastes. Hawkeye describes her as "highbrow" and the guys, together with Father Mulcahy, help Radar brush up on Bach, Tolstoy and Italian classic poets. But not everyone is happy about the "mixed" (enlisted and officer) romance in the offing; a very nasty Margaret threatens to call Gen. Clayton if Henry does not break them up. Hawkeye wonders how Hotlips would feel if her own romance with Frank was threatened. The hapless Ferret Face is like chloroform in the hands of the masters. But, can the guys actually force Hotlips to say "Uncle?"

LTC Blake announces that the film being presented deals with the treatment of cardiogenic shock. He then adds that there will also be a slide show on the newest drugs available to combat it. However, Blake then begins explaining the slides as they're shown. This would be counter-intuitive, because it wouldn't make much sense to discuss the drugs to treat cardiogenic shock before showing a film that explains its treatment. See more
