About Soon Chi LuEdit
Soon Chi Lu is brought by his grandfather Key Yong Lu to the MASH for emergency treatment. They had been moving south after their village had been destroyed by the enemy. Soon Chi had fallen into a ditch while trying to evade enemy shelling and had fractured his leg. Soon Chi wakes after the operation and asks for his "mouth music", which was the only thing he could carry with him. Unfortunately, the instrument, which was a gift from a G.I., had been lost during the enemy attack.
B.J. is inspired and he and Hawkeye ask Klinger to scrounge for a harmonica but he fails. Soon, a fresh opening develops. Major Finch turns up at the MASH. Earlier on, Winchester had given his unit a failing grade for a hygiene inspection. Finch came to appeal to Winchester to pass him, but nothing doing, so Finch punches Winchester in the jaw, knocking a tooth out and then leaves. B.J. and Hawkeye seizes this opportunity and give Finch a call. Hawkeye pretends to be Winchester and threatens to file charges unless Finch can cough up a harmonica.
Finch is tricked into delivering a harmonica. B.J. presents this to Soon Chi who starts entertaining the people in post-op with music. Later Father Mulcahy teaches Soon Chi a few romantic pieces which he plays when the MASH staff through a surprise anniversary party for B.J.
