  • Episode Description
  • Brought on by Frank and Margaret's negative reports, General Clayton assigns a psychiatrist, Captain Hildebrand, to examine the 4077th M*A*S*H unit, to see if it should be disbanded. Henry tells them to be on their best behavior, or else they will be split up. But the 4077th soon begins to act in their traditional, insane ways: the shrink experiences Max Klinger, watches the hijinks of Hawkeye and Trapper John, and witnesses the trysts of Frank and Hot Lips. While Hildebrand confronts the unit on its behaviour, choppers bearing wounded begin to arrive and everyone heads for the OR. The onslaught of casualties shows the 4077th's true side.moreless

    • Captain Hildebrandt: These guys make a gin that could melt your dog tags.

    • Henry: I figured the shower was the safest place to meet, right? Hawkeye: Absolutely, nobody ever comes in here.

    • Frank (to Hawkeye and Trapper): You both look more like bums than doctors. Trapper: Actually, I was thinking of becoming a bum doctor, but the proctology class was full.

    • Margaret (about Radar): That one spies on everyone! Hawkeye: Now dear, he is our son. Henry: He is NOT!

    • Henry: Someone has been rat-finking to the general. Frank: I didn't do it. Anyway, it's my duty. (Henry gives Frank and Hot Lips an angry look) Hot Lips: There is nothing wrong with reporting how unmilitary your command is. Henry: Then I have to remind you that if the general splits us up, we all get split up, which means you and doctor Burns will stop practicing medicine together, or whatever it is you do!
