About Major Van KirkEdit
Klinger and Sergeant "Hondo" McKee are at the I Corps Supply Depot discussing a trade for a much-needed generator for the 4077th MASH. Their main generator had broken down and their backup generator had been stolen.
While McKee inspects the scotch which Klinger has brought to trade, Major Van Kirk drives up in his jeep. He tells McKee he is from the 243rd Services and Supply (battalion?) and is here to demand his generator. He has come personally because many of the items meant for his unit always get lost.
Flabbergasted, McKee insists he doesn't understand why his things get lost. He has the generator and has been holding it for the Major. Van Kirk says he has been down to using a backup generator which they had to swipe from a MASH!
Seeing the case of Scotch, Van Kirk asks McKee to throw in "a bottle or three". However Klinger is quick to dissuade him, saying it could have been poisoned. "Lousy commies!" Mckee leads the Major off to settle the paperwork for the generator, all the while blustering about having lost two generators already.
Klinger, watching the two leave, has a sudden inspiration--and the Major is about to lose a third generator!
