Synopsis by Hal Erickson
Everyone in the 4077th has spring fever, and few are more "feverish" than Col. Henry Blake (McLean Stevenson), who decides to take advantage of a lull in hostilities by shooting a few rounds of golf. Elsewhere, Father Mulcahy (William Christopher) relies upon a balky short-wave radio to perform a marriage ceremony between Klinger and his Toledo-based sweetheart; a grateful patient (Alex Karras) inextricably attaches himself to a bewildered Hawkeye (Alan Alda); and Radar falls for a nurse who shares his love of poetry. Said nurse is played by comedienne Mary Kay Place, who also co-wrote the script. "Springtime" first aired on October 15, 1974.
