I remembered this story earlier today and wanted to share it.
Back in the late 1990’s Danielle and I were apartment sitting for some friends here in Memphis. While lying in bed one night in someone else’s room we started discussing the TV show “MASH”.
After talking about the characters Winchester and Frank Burns… we got into a friendly argument about which came first and if they ever met one another on screen.
Danielle was adamant that they were on the program at the same time and acted in scenes together. I, on the other hand, was positive that they never met and one replaced the other. I argued that Frank Burns was the original and Winchester replaced him.
The discussion went on for 45 minutes… lying in bed in Mid-town Memphis around 1 in the morning.
Finally I got up and looked it up on the Internet… could not find any answers but did email some web-site that would get back to us the next day.
We received an email the next day that said… Winchester and Frank never met on the show but did talk on the phone in one scene.
I was right about MASH but she was right about everything else.
