As a reward for saving the life of the son of Gen. Maynard M. Mitchell (Robert F. Simon), Hawkeye (Alan Alda) and Trapper (Wayne Rogers) get three days' R & R in Tokyo, while the 4077th gets a new Officer's Club. Alas, Frank (Larry Linville) spoils the fun by sticking to the letter of the law and refusing to allow any non-officers to enjoy the club's facilities. To restore sanity and democracy to the camp, Hawkeye relies once more upon Gen. Mitchell, who isn't even aware that he's being used. Capped by a running gag in which Klinger tries to get a maternity discharge, "Officers Only" was first telecast on December 22, 1973.
