Synopsis by Hal Erickson
The men and women of the 4077th are acting more wacky than ever, but only so they can retain their sanity in the face of the Korean War. General Clayton (Herb Voland), worried that the MASH unit's zaniness may be getting out of hand, assigns a no-nonense psychiatrist, Capt. Hildebrandt (Anthony Holland), to determine if it would be better to split up the unit, "for the good of the service." But after a week or so with the likes of Hawkeye (Alan Alda), Trapper (Wayne Rogers), et. al., Hildebrandt begins to see things in a different -- and crazier -- light. "Divided We Stand" originally aired September 15, 1973, as the opening episode of M*A*S*H's second season.
