Brigadier General Clayton is worried about his favorite M*A*S*H, the 4077. They treat so many casualties, so close to the front; he fears the 4077 is operating under more pressure than it can stand. Gen. Clayton sends a psychiatrist, Capt. Hildebrand, to evaluate the group on the "QT." His report will determine the future of the 4077. Does Henry understand the concept of "QT?" Is Capt. Hildebrand smarter than he looks or does he have his own agenda? Written by LA-Lawyer

General Clayton is shown wearing ribbons on his fatigues. Ribbons have never been worn on fatigues by any service . The bright colors defeat the purpose of the uniform, to "blend in" or camouflage. See more »


Hawkeye: [speaking to Capt. Hildebrand about himself, Trapper, and Frank Burns] We're thinking of going into practice together when we get home. Isn't that right, Trap?
Captain John McIntyre: Yeah. We're going to open our own clinic, the three of us.
Frank Burns: That's right. The three of us war buddies would run the place.
Hawkeye: Frank would park the cars.

The General Clayton Nuisance
24 February 2015 | by HitchcocSee all my reviews

I like this episode. It has a nice tension to it. Despite having their butts handed to them if they goof up, the characters in this drama can't resist falling back on old habits. Because Frank and Margaret reported Henry's incompetence, General Clayton has sent a rather gung-ho psychologist to evaluate the camp. If he finds them to be what the two majors say, he will split up the camp. Of course, Henry immediately blabs even though he is supposed to be hush hush. This starts a string of mishaps and strained relations. Hawkeye can't resist shooting his mouth off. They tell the psychologist that when the war is over, they are going to start their own clinic. Hawkeye adds that Frank will be parking the cars. Of course, things always get back to the surgeons and their work.
