About Dr. KaplanEdit
Dr. Kaplan was a dentist who appeared on two M*A*S*H episodes. In the "Showtime" episode, Kaplan has gotten his orders to go home. He is ultra-paranoid and rather anal retentive about what might happen to him before he gets to go home; he doesn't want anything to delay his out processing out of the Army and does'nt want anything prolonging his stay, but -- at episode's end he winds up in a minor accident as his driver was about to transport him from the camp, breaking a leg! In playing the erstwhile, rather neurotic Kaplan, Harvey J. Goldenberg gives a tounge-in-cheek performance similar to the Woody Allen as nerdish store owner Miles Monroe in the 1973 blockbuster comedy film Sleeper.
