In this opening episode of M*A*S*H's eighth season, the 4077th pays host to Pvt. Paul "Look Out Below" Conway (Ed Begley Jr.), the clumsiest man in the army--any army. Though Conway is a total loss as a soldier, he turns out to be a brilliant gourmet chef, which is why the doctors and nurses are bending over backward to keep him in camp. Meanwhile, Col. Potter (Harry Morgan) wrestles with a profoundly personal problem. Longtime series regular Gary Burghoff (Radar) is billed as a "guest star", reflecting the fact that he would soon be leaving the 4077th.
