Radar learns his mother has a new friend: a gentleman friend. Margaret has the MIL from Hell; when Donald put Margaret forth for DAR membership, his mother blackballed her. The Boston baldy has no comfort and no sense for Margaret. Klinger cried wolf too many times: his wife is divorcing him and no one believes him. Klinger tells Father Mulcahy he will go AWOL.
