Synopsis by Hal Erickson
Fed up with the perceived insolence of her staff, head nurse Margaret "Hot Lips" Houlihan (Loretta Swit) spitefully confines Nurse Baker (Linda Kelsey). This requires Hawkeye (Alan Alda) and B.J. (Mike Farrell) to "invent" a quarantine so that Baker can enjoy a long-awaited overnight rendezvous with her soldier husband. Inevitably, Margaret finds out about the ruse, and threatens all sorts of dire consequences--until a painfully revealing battle of words results in a deeper understanding between Margaret and the other nurses.
