Col. Potter (Harry Morgan) hopes to whip the camp back into shape by holding an Olympics. Since the first prize is a three-day pass, even the languine Hawkeye (Alan Alda) and B.J. (Mike Farrell) agree to participate. Admidst the thrill of victory and the agony of defeat, Margaret's husband Donald (here played by Mike Henry) pinch-hits for an ailing Klinger (Jamie Farr). Any resemblance between the M*A*S*H Olympics and the real-life 1952 Olympic Games in Helsinki (represented by brief film clips throughout the episode) is not only coincidental, but a sheer miracle.
