In one of the episodes of MASH, the sophisticated shell, inside which Major Winchester protects himself from the horror of the suffering and death with which he constantly deals, breaks and he is left defenseless. He goes into a depression in which he struggles to find some answers to life's most perplexing problem -- death. Finally, in utter desperation, he leaves the base hospital and goes up to a battalion aid station where the wounded are first taken. Colonel Potter discovers where he is and calls him, ordering him to return to the MASH hospital.
