Synopsis by Hal Erickson
Several medical crises face the 4077th while Col. Potter (Harry Morgan) is away in Tokyo. To start with, the Colonel's beloved mare gets the colic; then Klinger (Jamie Farr) is felled by profound depression, and Margaret (Loretta Swit) is sidelined with appendicitis. By the time Potter has returned, at least two of the three major crises have passed. Can it be that Klinger will finally get his long-desired discharge--without even wearing a string of pearls and basic black?
