About Sun Pak and "Sophie", Colonel Potter's HorseEdit
Col. Potter rides back to camp, having spent a near-perfect day out with his horse Sophie. When he makes it back to his tent, he and Radar give the laundry to an elderly Korean gentleman, Cho Pak (Yuki Shimoda) and his daughter Sun.
Col. Potter is a little concerned over how unhealthy Cho looks, and suggests he come to the hospital for an exam. Mr. Pak refuses, and Sun then explains he's a proud man--a former cavalry officer--and is not happy to be "reduced" to doing laundry. Col. Potter, a old cavalry man himself, understands.
The next morning, Col. Potter and Radar are shocked to see that Sophie is gone! Col. Potter assumes he left her coral open at the end of the night, and they quickly arrange a massive search to find her.
But an entire day passes with no luck. Col. Potter, now despondent, comes to grips with the idea he's never going to see Sophie again. He asks Radar to share a drink with him as a toast to "absent friends."
The next morning, Mr. Pak returns Sophie, dressed in full military regalia. Sun explains that her father was once a proud man, and couldn't help claiming Sophie as his own, so he could feel like a young, brave solider once again. Col. Potter understands this motivation better than anyone, and actually offers to let Mr. Pak keep Sophie. He says that Sophie means the world to him, but, to Mr., Pak, "she means even more."
Sun tearfully thanks Col. Potter, and accepts for her father Cho. They turn around and wander off, leaving Col. Potter standing there with Sophie's empty bridal. Radar is stunned at Col. Potter's overwhelming gesture of kindness: "Colonel--that's just about the best thing I ever saw anybody do ever."
The next morning, Sun returns with Sophie. She explains to Col. Potter that her father died in the middle of the night. But, thanks to Col. Potter, he died with pride and dignity, something she never will forget. She plants a gentle kiss on Col. Potter's cheek, hands him Sophie's lead, and walks off.
