[after B.J. and Hawkeye mention that the movie The Moon Is Blue was banned in Boston]

A teetotaling general, despite having his life saved at the MASH unit, says he smelled alcohol on the breath of an orderly. He immediately declares the 4077th dry. There is a second plot and that is that the same movies keep getting sent to the unit over and over. Hawkeye is reading Stars and Stripes and sees a movie that was not allowed to get the seal of approval, due to suggestive sexual content. They soon submerge themselves in the bureaucracy of the military concerning who gets what, when. The movie is "The Moon Is Blue." They pull every finagle they can and think they are going to finally see it, with unfortunate results. For anyone who knows a little bit about movies, they know that this was a real clunker. It still makes for an interesting episode with some rather fascinating characters.
