Synopsis by Hal Erickson
With Col. Potter (Harry Morgan) away, the insufferable Charles is placed in charge of the 4077th. When they're not expressing displeasure over Charles' arrogance, Hawkeye (Alan Alda) and B.J. (Mike Farrell) are locking horns with the US Marines. The reason: The doctors want to help an Dutch-immigrant Marine private (Stan Wells) obtain a hardship discharge.
