Very early in the episode Henry calls a meeting in his office where he announces the impending arrival of the new commander of operations in Korea. This commander, Major General Bartford Hamilton Steele, is played by an actor that all M*A*S*H-o-philes know and love. Who is this actor?
(Full name or Surname)
Our favorite M*A*S*H residents learn that Steele is 100% GI, meaning that the camp has to be cleaned up. Uniforms are to be pressed, haircuts and shaves are to be mandatory, and living quarters are to be 'ship-shape'. Frank Burns does his part, dusting the Swamp, until he arrives at Hawkeye's corner of the tent. Hawkeye becomes defensive when Frank approaches his 'medical magazines'. What is the title of the magazine Frank picks up?
The Joy of Nudity
The Naked and the Semi-Naked
Bikini Beach Bash
Immediately after General Steele arrives, Henry orders the camp to fall in for inspections. The general first approaches Frank, commanding him to do which of the following?
Dewax his ears
Align his eyes
Trim his nose hair
Extend his chin
Margaret is next for the treatment. Steele's orders to Margaret? 'Gut in, chest out!' According to Steele, this was a quote from which historical figure?
Joan of Arc
Black Jack Pershing
After announcing to Father Mulcahy that 'there are no athiests in foxholes' the general turns to Radar. According to his comment to Radar, who does the general consider to be 'rotten Indian fighters'?
Steele's final encounter during the inspection is with Klinger, who has selected a lovely blue checkered dress and a red hat for the occasion. Rather than demanding an explanation as to Klinger's attire, the general mistakes him for his wife. We learn that the general's wife is named...?
That evening Henry treats General Steele to a roasted pig. After leaving the mess tent, the general discovers which discarded medical item on the ground, insisting that it can be reused?
After dinner Steele insists that Henry direct him towards the supply room, where Hawkeye is unfortunately having a 'date' with Nurse Baker. Which items of food has Radar procured for Hawkeye to improve the date with Nurse Baker?
Champagne and sardines
Saltines and cheese
Canned ham and French bread
Biscuits and fried chicken
After Henry and General Steele enter the supply room, Hawkeye masquerades as a reporter for the United Press in order to stay out of trouble. Steele is delighted to share with Hawkeye several 'quotes' among other personal information. This includes the fact that he is sending which item home to his wife?
We next see Steele in the Officers' Club where he encounters Trapper having a drink with Warrant Officer Martin Williams, the chopper pilot. After grilling Williams about his helicopter's fuel efficiency, Steele decides that the M*A*S*H should be moved closer to the front. He enforces this with a quote from General Cornwallis, or so he claims. What is this quote?
Craters and cross-fire shall never stand in the way of progress!
You can't treat the enemy until you see the white in their eyes!
You do your best business on Main street!
Doctors and nurses shall be our front line of defense!
Soon after the Cornwallis quote, General Steele cites his most amusing apocryphal quote. Please complete the quote by filling in the blank: 'A ________ will never stand in the way of victory!'
General Steele brings Henry and Frank along with him to discover a new location for the M*A*S*H, dangerously close to the front. With sniper bullets zinging over his head, which song does the general gleefully sing?
I Love a Parade

Back to the camp, arrangements are being made to bug out. Hawkeye has other ideas, however, such as helping to save a wounded soldier. Hawkeye sends a soldier to Seoul via chopper, disobeying Steele's orders to hold the chopper for his private use. This results in Hawkeye's being court martialed by the general. Which of these is not one of the charges faced by Hawkeye?
Impersonating a civilian
Failure to attend inspection
Disobedience of orders
At the beginning of Hawkeye's court martial trial, the chopper pilot is called to testify. But before Steele begins with the questioning, he insists on a musical number from chopper pilot Williams. Which song does Steele end up performing as an illustration to Williams?
My Old Kentucky Home
Sweet Georgia Brown
True or false: Steele is returned to the United States where he is given an honorable discharge.
