Arc Advancement


Until this episode, Radar did not have a first name. Actor Gary Burghoff asked the writers to come up with one for his character. This is the first time he reveals his first name is "Walter".


The Show

One of the very few episodes to never record a laugh track, nor was one ever added in syndication.
