Set in 1951 in South Korea, the 4077th Mobile Army Surgical Hospital is assigned two replacements: Captains "Hawkeye" Pierce and "Duke" Forrest, who arrive in a stolen Jeep. They are insubordinate, womanizing, mischievous rule-breakers but they soon prove to be excellent combat surgeons. They immediately clash with their new tent mate Frank Burns, who is both a religious man and an inferior, stubborn, inept and incompetent surgeon who, when he causes mistakes, blames anyone that is aside him. Hawkeye and Duke pressure Lt. Colonel Henry Blake, the unit CO, to have Burns removed from "their" tent. They also ask him to apply for a specialist thoracic surgeon to be assigned to the 4077th. Their wish is granted when Captain "Trapper" John McIntyre arrives at the 4077th. Major Margaret Houlihan, the newly assigned chief nurse of the camp, arrives and has a tour of the camp. In the post-op ward, Trapper sees Burns unjustly blame Private Boone, a dim-witted teenage orderly, for a patient's death. Trapper then confronts Burns and punches him in front of Henry and Houlihan who happened to be walking by. Henry planned to make Trapper chief surgeon, but as a result of what happened, Henry advises him to postpone it for one week because if Trapper is named chief surgeon immediately after what Houlihan witnessed, "she'll most likely file a complaint from Seoul to Washington, D.C." Later, Houlihan has a brief discussion about Army protocol with Hawkeye. Hawkeye mentions Burns negatively, which Houlihan strenuously disagrees and lies to him, claiming that Burns is a "good" technical and military surgeon and that he is not inferior. Houlihan also strenuously reprimands Hawkeye's nickname as inconsistent to nurses and enlisted men who call him by that name. Hawkeye develops an immediate dislike for Houlihan as a result, despite being attracted to her, calling her "what we call a regular army clown," with Houlihan referring to Hawkeye as a degenerate person. Houlihan and Burns then make plans to bring discipline to the M.A.S.H. unit, which they consider to be out of control. While Henry is away visiting General Hammond at the 325th Evac Hospital, Trapper, now named chief surgeon against Houlihan's wishes, leads the camp in a general abandonment of regulations, and wild partying ensues. Burns and Houlihan are appalled and write a report to the General. They also give in to their repressed passions and the two have sex in Houlihan's tent. Hawkeye, Duke and Trapper quickly discover the tryst and have Cpl. "Radar" O'Reilly place a microphone under their cot and broadcast it over the public address system; everyone hears Houlihan telling Burns to "Kiss my hot lips!", earning her the insulting nickname "Hot Lips". Houlihan and Burns, initially unaware of the mic placed underneath the cot, hear their own voices echo over the PA system when the system starts to draw feedback, forcibly ending the sexual encounter. To belittle the two officers, nurses, enlisted men, and other officers, including Hawkeye, Trapper and Duke repeatedly target Houlihan and Burns in a campaign of sexual harassment and humiliation; when Hawkeye quietly mocks Burns about the encounter, an angered Burns attacks him. As a result, Burns is sedated, restrained and shipped stateside for psychiatric evaluation, much to the camp's delight.
