** The B plot of "Say No More". Margaret is eagerly anticipating a lecture by Dr. Steven Chesler, a hero of hers whom Charles dismisses as a charlatan. However, she develops laryngitis with only days before the lecture, and Charles tells her that she will only regain her voice in time for the lecture if she doesn't speak at all before then - an impossibility for a nurse. She has Charles act as her voice for correspondence with Dr. Chesler as their respective plans change, but her laryngitis looks to prevent her from getting a chance to meet him before he returns to the United States. Just as she is glumly facing the prospect of not getting to meet Dr. Chesler, she is stunned when he actually shows up at the 4077th in person and says he could hardly turn down her invitation after their last conversation, in which she said so many nice things about how much she admires him - yes, he adds, Major Winchester was the one actually speaking, but he was relaying her words. Margaret is floored - she wasn't actually present for that conversation. It turns out Charles, seeing how much meeting Chesler meant to Margaret, set aside his own contempt for the man to persuade him to visit her before he leaves Korea. In the episode's final scene, she surprises (and/or horrifies) her fellow major by thanking him with a big kiss.

'''Charles:''' I believe that Major Houlihan is inviting you to come in. ''[Margaret nods enthusiastically]'' Well, get acquainted, you two! ''[Chesler enters Margaret's tent; Charles closes the door behind him]''\\
'''Chesler:''' Now, please don't strain your voice!\\
'''Margaret:''' ''[still reeling from the shock of Chesler's unexpected visit]'' Why are you here?\\

to your job or all those lovely things you said about me, but... I wanted to meet you before I left.\\

* Margeret is furious when she realizes her engagement ring is a ReplacementGoldfish, after she'd lost her ring and the guys "found" it for her. (It says, "Over hill, over dale, our love will '''ever''' (not "never") fail".) She's ready to explode when Max gently tells her that she's being unfair, and they only tried to make her feel better. She later lets Hawkeye know it's a replacement, then tells him she likes the replacement better.

* Season 9's first episode, "The Best of Enemies", sees Hawkeye--on his way to some well-deserved R&R--captured by a North Korean soldier who forces the doctor to work on a fellow soldier who has been wounded. Hawkeye does his best to save the wounded soldier, but the attempt ultimately fails and the soldier dies (to the frustration and anger of both the other soldier and Hawkeye). The living soldier lets Hawkeye go free, but Pierce stays behind for a moment to watch the soldier start digging a grave for his fallen comrade. At which point Hawkeye comes back, shares a glance with the soldier that says more than any words ever could, and helps dig the grave.

** When Sidney comes to speak to the man who believes himself to be Christ, he talks with pride about how his son got his first tooth. He and BJ immediately swap pictures. It's a small moment typically cut from TV screenings, but it's touching.

* In "Dear Sis", when Fr. Mulcahy feels that he's useless to the unit. At the end, Hawkeye and the rest of the 4077 let him know just how important he is to them, and sing "Dona Nobis Pacem." Also in the same episode, the look on Major Winchester's face when he opens his Christmas present to see the tobogganing cap he wore as a child--a little piece of home thoughtfully sent for by Mulcahy. Dona nobis pacem.
** It's even more heartwarming when you realize that it was actually Radar who sent out for the hat and made it seem like it was Mulcahy's doing, thus helping both the chaplain and the surgeon truly connect to the holiday season.
*** Radar may have sent for the cap, but it was still Father Mulcahy's idea for him to do so.

season.



** The B plot in "Death Takes a Holiday". Winchester earns the contempt of the rest of the camp by not donating to the Christmas charity drive... because, unbeknownst to them, he is instead following a family tradition of donating a large consignment of confectionery from an upmarket Boston supplier to a local orphanage. He is surprised in the act by the orphanage director, who invites him in to meet the orphans; Winchester declines, saying that the gift must be given [[AnonymousBenefactor anonymously]]. He later discovers at the camp Christmas party, to which the orphans are also invited, that the director immediately sold the chocolates on the black market. Charles confronts the director, believing that he pocketed the money, only to learn that the money was used to purchase enough rice and cabbage to feed the orphans for a month. He is immediately humbled by the revelation, and returns to the Swamp. Klinger overhears the conversation and follows Winchester to give him a plate of leftover food from the Christmas party... on condition that the gift must be given anonymously. They exchange a "Merry Christmas", addressing each other not as "Klinger" and "Major" but as [[FirstNameBasis "Max" and "Charles"]].
*** Charles' initial confrontation with the orphanage director also counts. Charles, who's usually pretty aloof, looks about two seconds from ripping the man's arm off and beating him with it-- and ''sounds'' about three seconds into the act.

* "Movie Tonight" is an episode full of heartwarming. To start with the entire camp are at each others throats, getting angry over everything. When a movei Potter ordered arrives, he gets the entire camp (minus the nurses, who are going to dinner at I-Corps) to meet in the mess tent for the screening. The projector keeps breaking during the movie, and the camp start getting angry again. To stay calm they all sing "Gee, Mom, I Want to Go Home", during which the nurses decided to stay at the camp instead of going to dinner, watch Radar do impressions of famous people, and play the game no one has been waiting for: the Father Mulcahy sound alike contest! When the movie starts playing again, there's a shoot out scene, during which the camp play along and pretend they've been shot and are lying on the ground. An ambulance driver pulls into the camp with wounded and finds them pretending to be dead, and during surgery everyone is singing a song from the movie.

** The one BJ gets from Peg in ''Oh, How We Danced'' is particularly heartwarming. First, that Hawkeye would go to the trouble of setting BJ up so he could record how the day might go. Then getting it to Peg in time for her to make the movie and send it back. Then the surprise party. The look of absolute joy and pride on his face when he sees Erin in the movie will have you ready to cry as well.

* Several reactions from Season 9 episode "Letters", most especially the one Charles gets from Virginia. She writes him a letter about how beautiful Maine looks in fall, sending along a fallen leaf from a birch tree. Charles, who has so far written two letters: one angry and one sarcastic, gets a look on his face of absolute joy and writes a truly thankful letter.
