|On January 4, 2015, I will be shutting down the server that hosts The TV IV website. It has been a very long time since I've been able to put any decent amount of time into the site, and ad revenue is plummeting. I think it is time to shut it down or hand it off to someone who can keep it going properly. If you are interested in taking over the site's code and data, contact administrators at tviv.org. --CygnusTMtalk|
M*A*S*H/For Want of a Boot
For Want of a Boot is the seventeenth episode of the second season of M*A*S*H, and the forty-first episode overall.
After months of waiting, Hawkeye finds that it may take more than a requisition form to get a new pair of boots.
In the following episode "Operation Noselift" they have to bring in a specialist for a nose job. But in this episode Hawkeye offers Klinger a nose job for his hair dryer.

Hawkeye: What did we get, Radar?
Radar: Uh, it's a mistake: 500 diapers and 5000 pairs of rubber pants.
Hawkeye: I'm glad you're all set for winter.
