  • The arrival of Gen. MacArthur spurs lots of comedy in one of the best episodes of the series.

    When MacArthur wants to visit the camp because of their medical record, everyone goes crazy, except for Hawkeye and Trapper, of course. Frank starts burning books, and Henry has to go through all sorts of special arrangements for his arrival. It gets so bad that there are no orderlies for to take patients to post-op because they are all cleaning up the camp, though there is always time for a tryst with Margaret in the VIP tent. Henry also has to worry about Klinger trying to get Big Mac to discharge him. At the rehersal, Hawk and Trap are their usual selves and Klinger tries to kiss the pipe of the MacArthur stand in, Radar(Hawkeye says he shrank because of all his walking on water). Mac finally arrives, and leaves just as quickly, but not before he salutes Klinger as the Statue of Liberty.
