About "Hondo" McKeeEdit
The generator of the 4077th MASH has broken down and their backup generator has been stolen. Klinger has been unsuccessful in getting a replacement and even Radar is having little success. Klinger is in the company office which Sergeant Hondo McKee calls looking for Radar. Klinger is feeling down because he cannot seem to match Radar's resourcefulness and he is not really interested in helping Hondo locate Radar. Hondo tells Klinger he has a generator and wants to discuss a trade. At this Klinger brightens up--this might be his chance to show that he can deliver!
Klinger brings a case of scotch to the I Corps supply depot to trade for the generator. Hondo is inspecting the scotch when Major George Van Kirk drives up in a jeep demanding a generator which he insists is his. He wants to make sure he gets the generator this time because the items he orders from the supply depot keep getting lost. Hondo is flabbergasted and protests that he can't understand what happened. The generator is right there waiting for the Major.
An annoyed Klinger watches as McKee brings the Major off to settle the paperwork for the generator. But then Klinger gets a stroke of inspiration and manages to wrangle the generator from the despatcher before McKee and the Major can get to it. What is not shown is what McKee says with the Major when he discovers the generator gone!
