The 1952 Olympics in Helsinki, Finland, is big news at the 4077. Donald calls to tell Margaret he will pick her up on the way to their R&R in Manila. BJ and Hawkeye are helping Sgt. Ames, career Army, get into shape and lose weight so he does not lose his job and pension. This gives Klinger the idea to eat his way to Section 8. When an ambulance truck overturns, it takes 4 MPs to set it upright. Potter is disgusted how weak and out-of-shape his crew is so he devises the 4077 Olympics. Hawkeye leads the Yellow Blackbirds and BJ leads the Pink Elephants; each member of the winning team gets a 3-day pass.
