Synopsis by Hal Erickson
April Fool's Day is practically a legal holiday at the 4077th, with the staffers falling over themselves performing all manner of practical jokes. Normally, even taciturn Col. Potter (Harry Morgan) would be joining in on the fun. This year, however, Potter wishes everyone would cease and desist: the notoriously humorless and extremely disciplinarian Col. Tucker (Pat Hingle) has arrived to conduct an inspection of the camp. This was the final episode of M*A*S*H's eighth season.
