The 8063 CO asks Col. Potter to send his best surgeon to demonstrate a 4077 specialty procedure, the arterial transplant. Col. Potter asks Hawkeye to go, to the chagrin of the other surgeons. Instead of allowing Hawkeye to choose his own nurse, Margaret insists she accompany Hawkeye. En route to 8063, the 4077 jeep is shelled and disabled leaving Margaret and Hawkeye to abandon the jeep and seek refuge in a dilapidated hut. Hawkeye is annoyed because Margaret is super-bossy but he connects her moodiness with a letter she keeps rereading. The pair drink Japanese Scotch and pray no artillery or enemy will find them, as Col. Potter, BJ, Mulcahy and Klinger call everyone from I Corp to Tokyo to find their lost teammates.
