Synopsis by Hal Erickson
On the verge of insanity after three solid days in the O.R., the sleep-deprived Hawkeye (Alan Alda) is unable to stop operating even when he's ordered to. Continuing to spin out of control, Hawkeye pens a provocative letter to President Truman, then attempts to negotiate a cease-fire by providing the enemy with the officer's latrine. It is up to Trapper (Wayne Rogers) to bring Hawkeye's delirium to a safe conclusion. "Dr. Pierce and Mr. Hyde" first aired on October 13, 1973.
