About Lieutenant LyonsEdit
Lieutenant Lyons first appears in Operation Noselift. Hawkeye and Trapper have arranged for plastic surgeon Major Stanley "Stosh" Robbins to visit the 4077th MASH to do a nose job for Private Danny Baker. "Stosh" was reluctant to come but Hawkeye and Trapper had tempted him with mention of a "Barracuda" nurse in the camp. "Stosh" arrives but is constantly distracted by his curiosity about who the "Barracuda" is, so when the time comes for the operation, he is nowhere to be seen. Hawkeye and Trapper search the camp grounds for him. Trapper opens the door to the nurse's shower tent and asks Lyons: "Dr. Robbins in here?" She replies: "I wouldn't be a bit surprised." "Stosh", it seems, has already been getting acquainted with the various nurses in his search for the "Barracuda".
In the next episode, The Chosen People, a Korean woman Choon Hi arrives in the camp claiming that Radar is the father of her baby. Hawkeye and Trapper do blood tests to see if this is true. While waiting for the results, an embarrassed Radar takes mother and child to the mess tent for a meal. Their presence amuses a group of nurses and Lieutenant Lyons comes over and razzes Radar about "taking the family out to lunch."
Later all is cleared up and the blood tests prove that Radar is not the father of Choon Hi's child. Nonetheless, Lyons has been suitably impressed--when she encounters Radar with Hawkeye and Trapper, she asks him playfully who he is going to watch that night's movie with.
