Pierce is upset by the fact that civilian doctors are making a lot of money off the war, and decides to bill the army for all his work. Meanwhile, Winchester is reluctantly showing 3 Korean doctors American medical techniques, putting them down all the while, until he is on the receiving end of their expertise.Written by
Sab Shimono previously appeared in "Dear Comrade" (1978) as a North Korean spy reporting on the day-to-day operations of the 4077th. In both episodes, he interacts heavily with Maj. Winchester, and proves to be more intelligent than Charles gives him credit for. See more »

Hawkeye becomes incensed when he finds out that civilian doctors are working for the military, getting paid a huge amount of money for minimal services, but they don't have to put in time in the Army. He decides to send a bill to the Army (well over 38,000 dollars). The second plot line is Charles being given the task of instructing three Korean doctors in the fineries of U.S. medical procedures. He treats them with disdain and condescension, even though they have every right to be there. Charles has another problem. He is totally doubled up with back pain. The Korean doctors claim they can help him, but nothing doing.
Meanwhile, Pierce tries to get his pay, but he is laughed at and even threatened. He takes a jeep as partial pay. Soon he is facing off with a colonel who has no sense of humor at all about what is going on. Fun episode. I especially liked the three Koreans.
