About Nurse PowellEdit
Lieutenant Powell first appears in "Dear Dad...Again". She is standing outside the mess tent with Hawkeye trying to chat her up. Radar interrupts with important news about Captain Casey but Hawkeye tells Radar to go away because he is "discussing the possibility of a surrender" with Nurse Powell. "She's giving me her terms right now." Radar insists on seeing Hawkeye so Powell walks away. Hawkeye chases after her and asks where she is going. "To the nurses' shower," she replies. "Good, then I'll see you, unless they plugged up the hole," he calls after her.
Her next appearance is several episodes later in Season 2 "Five O'Clock Charlie". Hawkeye and Trapper are in the shower tent discussing their plans to get rid of the ammo dump. Obviously they have overstayed and gone into the time-slot allocated to the nurses because Powell walks in, wrapped in a towel. "Hey! This is the nurses' shower!" she says. "I waited as long as I could," Hawkeye replies.
