PLOT SUMMARY: The Lins were like Korean aristocracy before the war; now, the remains of their estate is filled with their homeless friends and villagers. Daughter, Kyung Soon takes care of her mother, Madame Lin and the others; she hauls Hawkeye to tend to her mother, at Col. Potter's order, in a nicely kept automobile. Hawkeye gets the wrong impression until he sees the estate... and Kyung Soon in action. The 4077 gets a new nurse, Lt. Bobbie Gleason, fresh from Tokyo. She has the misfortune to mention a Lt. Colonel Donald something who flirted with her at her going-away party; Margaret is frantic it is her Donald and continues to plague the new nurse. As Col. Potter, BJ and Hawkeye drink, Potter tells Hawkeye love and war do not mix. But, Hawkeye has found a woman both novel and interesting. He refuses to take the wise 3 war, multi-tour veteran's advice. It is not within Hawkeye's nature to rebuff novelty.
