From: tdwood@magnus.acs.ohio-state.edu (Troy D Wood) Date: 22 Mar 93 23:31:22 GMT Newsgroups: alt.tv.mash Subject: Episode Summaries (Season Two) Gang, Here are the long-awaited episode summaries for season two. Sorry about the delay. 25. Divided We Stand Gen. Clayton assigns a psychiatrist Capt. Hildebrand (Anthony Holland) to examine the 4077th.

Written by Laurence Marks Directed by Jackie Cooper 27. 5 O'Clock Charlie An inept N. Korean pilot's bombings of (near) the camp become a spectator sport.

Written by Larry Gelbart and Laurence Marks Directed by Norman Tokar 28. For the Good of the Outfit The accidental shelling of the S. Korean village of Tai Dong gets Hawkeye and Trapper's attention. While the Army accepts no responsibility, they do plan to rebuild the village, with its own soft ice cream maker! Written by Jerry Mayer Directed by Jackie Cooper 29.

Hawkeye, Trapper, and Radar try to prevent Henry from letting his marriage go up in smoke over her. Written by Larry Gelbart and Laurence Marks Directed by Don Weis 44. For Want of a Boot A riotous episode in which Hawkeye will do anything to get a new pair of boots. In order to get Zale to get him some, he must get an appointment for Zale with Futterman, the camp dentist, who will only do it if Henry will give him a pass to Tokyo, and Henry will only grant the pass if Houlihan will get off his back, which she will do only if the guys throw a party for Frank's birthday with a cake, and Radar will only help get the cake if he gets a date with Nurse Murphy, who will only date someone with a hair dryer, and Klinger won't give up the hair dryer unless he gets a section 8 (and Frank won't sign).

Written by John Regier and Gary Markowitz Directed by Gene Reynolds 47. Mail Call The arrival of a new batch of mail makes Trapper depressed and he wants to desert, despite Hawkeye's efforts otherwise. Meanwhile, Hawkeye learns he has successfully tricked Frank into buying stocks in the fictitious company, Pioneer Aviation. Written by Larry Gelbart and Laurence Marks Directed by Alan Alda 48. A Smattering of Intelligence A classic episode in which Col. Flagg and another secret agent from another intelligence agency come to the 4077th to keep their eyes on one another and the camp. Hawkeye and Trapper trick them both into thinking that Burns is a traitor--one thinks he's a facist, the other thinks he's a communist. Written by Larry Gelbart and Laurence Marks Directed by Larry Gelbart End of season two
