Synopsis by Hal Erickson
Faced with the possibility that the 4077's supply of morphine is contaminated, the doctors and nurses are forced to rely on placebos instead. Oddly, the patients respond to the illusion that they're not in pain more than the actual fact. And that's not all: Nutty new recruit Boots Miller (Hamilton Camp) bids fair to get the Section 8 that Klinger (Jamie Farr) has long aspired to, while Hawkeye (Alan Alda), B.J. (Mike Farrell) and Charles (David Ogden Stiers) lock horns in a "tall tale" competition. This was the final episode of M*A*S*H's sixth season.
