Synopsis by Hal Erickson
Fed up with the usual bill of fare in the 4077th's mess tent -- namely, "a river of liver and an ocean of fish" -- Hawkeye (Alan Alda) threatens to wreak havoc on cooks and diners alike. In desperation, Hawkeye joins forces with Trapper (Wayne Rogers) and Radar (Gary Burghoff) to order a carry-out dinner of delectable barbecued spare ribs -- from Hawkeye's favorite restaurant in Chicago. Alas, the precious ribs are put on the back burner when the latest batch of wounded arrive. "Adam's Ribs" was first broadcast on November 26, 1974.
