About Nurse ConnieEdit
Nurse Connie makes her first appearance in "Guerilla My Dreams" during an O.R. scene. Although credited, none of the nurses in the O.R. have a speaking part, so which character is Connie is a matter of surmise. Among the nurses, one is Kellye. Another is shown assisting Potter and applying a surgical clamp--this is the sort of authentic action an untrained extra might not have done but which would be natural for a trained nurse like Connie Izay.
In "Morale Victory", Connie is assisting Winchester this time and praises Winchester for a beautiful job on the patient. Winchester responds by telling her she is a perceptive woman. Oddly enough, this speaking part is not credited.
In "Dreams", she is assisting Hawkeye when Potter tells Hawkeye to go over to relieve B.J. who is suffering from fatigue. Hawkeye asks Connie to close for him. "I thought you would never ask," she replies.
