About DobsonEdit

Corporal Dobson, a wounded soldier who arrives at the 4077th, almost died when Charles errantly supplied with a IV of Curare, in thinking it was Morphine he was supplying him with. In Post Op, Winchester, in the middle of complaining about the working conditions, gives Dobson the wrong sedative--Curare instead of Morphine--causing the young man to go into shock.

Hawkeye and B.J., in passing through O.R., catches Charles's neglegent error, and manage to pull Dobson through without complications, but Winchester (whom Hawkeye refers to as "Major Disaster") isn't even grateful for the help, and was still unwilling to even take the blame for giving Dobson the wrong drug.
