PLOT SUMMARY: Margaret jumps on Nurse Bell for two petty infractions in OR. BJ and Col. Potter tell Margaret to ease up, but Hawkeye knows something is wrong. He forces the issue: he tells Margaret she is too good to nitpick her nurses. So Margaret confides that she thinks she may be pregnant. Hawkeye sees this as a small miracle but Margaret knows it would be the end of her career. BJ wrestles with his patient, ex-ROTC man, Lt. Tom Martinson, who is frustrated at losing 35 of his men due to what he considers his inept leadership. Klinger has a photo angle to get out of the Army. Both Margaret and Hawkeye talk to Col. Potter to arrange her special test. Tokyo would take too long, so the trio asks Radar to sacrifice Fluffy, Radar's female rabbit. But Radar will not consent to sacrifice Fluffy; he insists Hawkeye remove Fluffy's ovaries and re-stitch her wounds.
