About Nurse LorraineEdit

Lorraine, who is an old college friend of Margaret, is, while still being a dedicated, talented and highly competent nurse, is quite engaging and free-spirited. Upon greeting Margaret upon her temporary assignment to the 4077th from the 8063rd with Captain Roy DuPree (played by George Lindsey) a surgeon who accompanied her on the temporary duty assignment, she is taken aback by longtime friend Margaret's stuffiness; Hotlips is similarly outraged by Lorraine's flirtatious behavior with Charles. which she looked at as "unprofessional", "girlish" and "silly".

The two then decide to have a heart-to-heart/woman-to-woman talk. Margaret admits she's been so jealous of her friend for so long she's almost come to hate her. Because, while Lorraine is a top-flight nurse, she's still the same fun, care-free person she was when they were in college together. Margaret, who admitted to feeling trapped by her identity as "Major Houlihan", admits to Lorraine that she has no friends at the 4077th. Lorraine urges her to let her guard down a little, and to try and let people in--she is sure they'd get to like Margaret if she would let people meet the real person inside.
