Lieutenant Bricker (Ed Flanders) arrives at the 4077th to film a documentary about M*A*S*H units, on the recommendation of General Clayton (Herb Voland). However, when Trapper and Hawkeye find out it is little more than propaganda, they wreck it and make their own version. After replacing most of the film with absurd images taken from around the camp, Hawkeye appears in the recovery room, explaining that no war is glamorous. The general orders all copies of the film burned, except one. He says that they need something to laugh at when the war ends.
