It is a beautiful Spring day that makes one yearn for a group lobotomy. Trapper grabs a nurse; Radar wants to grab pretty Lt. Simmons (Mary Kay Place) and Henry grabs some golf. In the field, nostrils flare as Hotlips and Frank grab each other. A hairy English rose reads Rupert Brooke... and a telegram. She said yes! Hawkeye almost gets grabbed by a disturbed feline fondler, but his new buddy, Gargantuan Marine, Lyle Wesson (Alex Karras) saves him. And he keeps on saving him! Henry arranges a wireless wedding between Korea and Toledo with Father Mulcahy presiding. The brides wore white. Were Scott and Zelda on the guest list? Will there be dancing and/or twirling? Boy, they sure throw some weird parties, huh? Does the Jr. Swamp Rat finally get slaked? Written by LA-Lawyer

Hawkeye claimed that the nurse he had been dreaming of was a rerun. In 1952, all television broadcasts were live. There was no such thing yet as a "rerun". See more »

Springtime in the Pit
5 March 2015 | by HitchcocSee all my reviews

Lots takes place in this offering. It is spring and there is a lot going on. Hawkeye operates on a Marine played by Alex Karras, the Hall of Fame tackle for the Detroit Lions. Radar falls for a gawky nurse played by Mary Kay Place. He gets his hands on a book of poetry by Rupert Brooke (whom he calls "Ruptured" Brooke). The guys talk him into telling the young lady his feelings, but when it works out, it is in spite of his efforts. There is a subplot of a young man suffering from PTSD who is hugging a cat and won't let go. Of course, the totally insensitive Frank Burns treats him like dirt. Klinger hears from LaVerne and sets up a marriage over a short wave radio. Of course, he wears a full wedding dress. This is all about the things that happen when the weather changes.
