  • Episode Description
  • On leave in Tokyo, Radar is desperately needed back at the crisis-stricken 4077th, but his return is delayed by outside events. While casualties continue to pour in from the front, the 4077th's generator conks out, and the backup has been stolen, depriving the medical unit of all electrical power. But Klinger, filling in for the vacationing Radar, lacks the expertise and experience to wheel and deal for a new machine.

    • Gary Burghoff decided to leave the series at the end of the seventh year, complaining that the monotony of the series had taken its toll. Though few tears were shed when he left, CBS coerced him to return for this two-part farewell episode that was scheduled to take advantage of the November ratings sweeps period.

    • No rendition of "Suicide Is Painless" is heard while "Good-Bye Radar (Part 1)"'s closing tag credits flash.

    • Notice that Radar now has darker curly hair.

    • Johnny Haymer ends his run on the show in his role as Sgt. Zale, effective this episode.
