M*A*S*H  Episode #Final Draft (1972)
Synopsis: Members of the 4077th Mobile Army Surgical Hospital care for the injured during the Korean War and use humor to escape from the horror and depression of the situation. Among the 4077's people are Capts. Benjamin "Hawkeye" Pierce and "Trapper John" McIntire, Majs. Margaret "Hot Lips" Houlihan and Frank Burns, and Cpl. Walter "Radar" O'Reilly.

The DISTANT SOUND of more HELICOPTERS becomes faintly audible

to the normal human ear, and a moment later one appears over

a ridge.

TIME LAPSE:

EXT. MOTOR POOL AND RAILROAD DEPOT – 325TH EVACUATION

HOSPITAL – YONG-DONG-PA – DAY

Two officers come from opposite directions toward a Jeep,

each carrying a Valpac and trailing a barracks bag. Though

they still wear such later-to-be-discarded refinements as

captain's bars on their caps and overcoats, they are far

from West Point standards in dress and manner. DUKE, 29, is

still solidly built like the fullback he once was. HAWKEYE,

28, a former end, is taller and rangier, wears glasses. Their

accents, Georgia and Maine respectively, are in sharp

contrast. A MOTOR POOL SARGEANT who has driven the Jeep up

climbs out.

MOTOR POOL DRIVER

You the guys going to the 4077th?

DUKE:

I'm one of 'em.

HAWKEYE:

(state of Maine

affirmative)

Ayuh. I'm the other then.

As they stow their gear in the back of the Jeep.

MOTOR POOL SARGEANT

Lots of luck.

He leaves.

HAWKEYE:

My name's Hawkeye Pierce.

DUKE:

Duke Forrest.
