      M*A*S*H: There Is Nothing Like a Nurse from season three is essentially a tribute to the nurses of the 4077th. When an impending enemy attack is threatened, the nurses are ordered to leave and go to a safer location. This brings on a lot of good-byes, including Hawkeye giving Hot Lips a whopper of a kiss.

        I also love the very end which has a lot of singing in it. They did that a lot in the first few years, and it lent to the party flavor of the show in this era.
