About Lt. Nugent and RadarEdit
When Lieutenant Nugent, a new nurse assigned to the 4077th, arrives in the episode "Hot Lips is Back in Town", Radar is completely smitten with her. However, his early attempts to strike up a relationship with her are unsuccessful because too much is going on in the camp. When Radar tries to chat her up in the Officers' Club, they are interrupted by Nurses Bigelow, Baker and Kellye who warmly welcome her and invite her to the nurses' tent for fudge. Later, Radar tries again in the supply tent but Linda is too busy taking an inventory to talk and then more wounded arrive. Radar's problems are compounded because he tries too hard to impress her, telling her he cannot dance because of a "football knee".
Finally, when the rush of wounded has quietened down, Radar approaches Linda to ask her out and is completely surprised when she agrees. He tells her he had been too busy trying to impress her by thinking of clever things to say instead of simply approaching her directly. Linda tells Radar that she thinks he is nicest when he is "unimpressive," which Radar says is the "swellest thing" anybody had ever said to him. The episode ends with the two of them dancing in the Officers' Club while everyone watches.
