The 4077 is packed with Greek soldiers, right before their Easter. The surgeons discuss Greece as the cradle of modern medicine; even Frank knows Hippocrates. Col. Andropolis visits Henry; he is a very genial man. Grateful for the excellent treatment of his men, Andropolis ships a feast for his men and the 4077, including a lamb and a bathtub of ouzo. Outraged about the upcoming Bacchanal, Frank goes to Father's tent to write him a letter in protest. Trapper and Hawkeye discover Private Chapman inflicted his own gunshot wound; they keep it a secret from Frank. When Radar meets Sunday's main course, he cannot countenance his slaughter. It may be Henry's keister on the line but a flight on Bo-Peep Airline is authorized to fly to Iowa. Ouzo can cure a whole lot of problems: you can take the lamb out of Korea but you cannot take the Spam out of the lamb.

    These guys have more parties than you can shake a stick at. Now it's the Greeks who are grateful and want to celebrate Greek Easter and have the celebration at the 4077th. The main dish is lamb and, of course, Radar meets the main course and sets about saving it. He tricks Henry into pardoning the little guy. Talk about stupid. The second plot is a soldier with a self-inflicted wound who could be court martialed and put in prison. He confesses to Frank, thinking he is a priest. Fortunately, nothing ever happens when Frank makes threats. Everything ends with a party and Frank even has a good time. I know some will think this is the cutest thing but it really detracts from what could be an edgy series.
