About the ColonelEdit
With the threat of a Chinese invasion, the Army has moved the nurses out of the 4077th, leaving just the men. This quickly turns the place into a shambles--the place is a mess, equipment is lying all over the place, and the doctors are left with people like the hapless Igor to assist them in surgery.
Luckily for them, the Chinese have retreated, and the nurses are brought back, where they are treated like returning heroes. Everyone is happy, except for Margaret, who is furious when she learns that she and the nursing staff are expecting an inspection from the dreaded Col. Buckholtz, who's a big stickler for Army Regulations -- in just five days!
Margaret rounds up the nurses--taking them away from their "welcome home" party--and heads into the OR. The nurses all are shocked speechless by the shambles left behind by the men, and Margaret barges into Potter's tent and demands to know how it could've happened.
The next day, the doctors have been drafted to help out, but they aren't much help. Hawkeye in particular is focused on trying to romance a nurse at the O' Club, seemingly any nurse that will respond to his come-on line. The next day, Col. Bucholtz arrives, driving Margaret crazy with her stern and exacting manner. As good and sharp as Margaret is, its still not quite good enough for Buckholtz.
Even Hawkeye makes a joke about the demanding Colonel's demeanor.
In the Mess Tent, Margaret sits with B.J. and Winchester, complaining about Buckholtz. B.J. and Winchester are sympathetic, but point out that what Buckholtz does to Margaret, Margaret does to the nurses, and look how that makes her feel. Margaret objects, but changes her mind when she overhears two nurses complaining about Buckholtz, saying, "She's almost as bad as Houlihan!"
Margaret runs into one of her nurses who is working late into the night, correcting things pointed out by Buckholtz. Margaret tells her to forget all that, and take the rest of the night off. Days later, Margaret finds out she and the nurses passed the inspection!
