A Full Rich Day

"A Full Rich Day" is the 12th episode of the 3rd season of M*A*S*H that aired December 3, 1974.

Hawkeye records an audiotape on a primitive tape recorder describing the events of the day before, including a berserk soldier from Turkey, losing the body of a dead lieutenant from Luxembourg, and a soldier coming from the frontlines to demand (with his M1 Carbine) that his wounded sergeant be patched up before anybody else. The Comic Relief in this episode shows the Wounded Turk going back to the front lines after dropping sleeping Radar O'Reilly off in Mash {Radar can't handle Prune Juice!} and the "Dead" Lieutenant coming back to life {he actually had been in the post Op ward unconscious until the "Luxembourg" National anthem was played!}

Trivia

*The last incident actually happened, but in 1944. A paratrooper sergeant used a .45 automatic pistol to force an Army doctor to operate on his badly wounded captain during the battle of Operation Market-Garden (and is portrayed historically in the book "A Bridge Too Far", and the film of the same name). Ironically, the wounded lieutenant (William Watson) and Loretta Swit appeared on an episode of "Gunsmoke"; he is a prisoner who tries to escape with an empty gun smuggled to him by Swit's character.
