Episode Guide compiled and copyright 1992 by Jerry Boyajian. Expanded from an episode guide started by Christopher Kribs and Jerry Boyajian. Revision history: V1.0: Included episode numbers, broadcast dates, and titles. V2.0: (August 1992) Reformatted to my current standard episode guide format. Added detailed cast and production credits.
The main body of this episode guide is broken into four sections, one for each season. Each section contains a broadcast schedule for that season, a list of the regular cast, recurring supporting cast, and production credits for the season, and then a page for each episode listing the episode number, title, writer(s), director, a brief synopsis, and the guest cast and some specific production credits for the episode. Following the main body of the guide are two appendices: the first an alphabetical list of the actors in the series, regular and guest, and what parts they played in which episodes, and the second an alphabetical list of the production crew, and what episodes they worked on. In the Broadcast Schedule, the episode numbers appear as both "x.y" and "z". "X" is the season number, "y" the episode number within the season, and "z" the whole episode number. I've tried to note repeat broadcasts and scheduled or unscheduled pre-emptions. These are incomplete, but I've listed as many as I know about. Air dates for the first three seasons were primarily determined via an electronic conference archive, in which many of the episodes were discussed in dated notes as they were broadcast on ABC, and secondarily taken from issues of TV GUIDE. Most of the fourth season dates were noted by me as the episodes were broadcast or were taken from TV GUIDE or from Frank Lovece's THE TELEVISION YEARBOOK. Other sources include Alex McNeil's TOTAL TELEVISION, and Tim Brooks & Earle Marsh's THE COMPLETE DIRECTORY TO PRIME TIME NETWORK TV SHOWS, 1946-PRESENT. When all other sources failed, I used the dates in the CHINA BEACH episode guide in EPI-LOG #14 (January 1992). As I don't put much stock in EPI- LOG's reliability, I've flagged these dates as "not confirmed". Most of the synopses were written by me, with some written by Christopher Kribs, and some a mixture of both. The cast and production credit listings are presented in the order in which the names appear on the screen, with the credit being listed as it appears on the screen. Character names or partial names that don't appear in the on-screen credits are enclosed in brackets. A blank line that appears within a "Guest Starring" listing for an episode or in the "Regular Production Credits" listing for a season indicate the split between those listed in the opening credits and those in the closing credits. The numbers in brackets towards the right for the season listings indicate which episodes the person in question appeared in or worked on. If no bracketed numbers appear, then the person in question appeared in or worked on all episodes for that season. The "Principal Cast" includes those and only those who are listed in the opening credits for the show. The "Recurring Supporting Cast" listing includes those recurring cast members not in the Principal Cast. It does not attempt to include all those characters who appear more than once, but those who appear three or more times and have a fairly significant or visible role. When a name has been misspelled in the credits, I've listed it as it appears in the credits and added "[sic]". In cases where a name is spelled two different ways, and I don't know which is correct, I've put "[sic]" after each one. CHINA BEACH Created by John Sacret Young and William Broyles, Jr. Produced by Sacret, Inc., in association with Warner Brothers Television Aired on the ABC network, Spring 1988 to Summer 1991. Currently airing in reruns on the Lifetime cable network. Theme Song: "Reflections" as originally performed by The Supremes Premise & Characters: CHINA BEACH follows the lives of the personnel of the 510th Evac Medical and R&R facility at China Beach, near Da Nang in the Republic of South Vietnam, primarily from 1967 to 1969. During the fourth season, the format of the show changed, focusing on how the various characters were in later years affected by their experiences in the Vietnam War. These episodes jumped around in time, but were mostly centered around the mid-80's and flashbacks to the War, but with occasional glimpses at other times in between. The main characters were as follows: Lieutenant (later Captain) Colleen McMurphy is, as the series opens, the Head Nurse at China Beach, and the principal focus of the series. She was an idealistic young nurse from Kansas who enlisted in the Army and volunteered for duty in Vietnam...and lived to regret it. Dr. Dick Richard (Captain, Army) was a gynecologist drafted for service as a combat surgeon. He maintained a stormy relationship with McMurphy throughout the series, both in the operating room and out. Karen Charlene Koloski, or "K.C.", is the stereotypical "hooker with a heart of gold", though in K.C.'s case, the gold is rather tarnished. K.C. has numerous contacts among the upper ranks of the services and the C.I.A., as well as the Black Market. By 1969, she'd quit her life of prostitution and moved to Bangkok where she opened up a nightclub. Corporal (USMC) Boonwell "Boonie" Lanier's official duties included being lifeguard at the beach and running the "Jet Set", China Beach's off-duty club. His unofficial duties included procuring whatever need to be procured. It was hinted in early episodes that he was an exceptional soldier who saved his squad during an especially hairy mission, and that after coming back from that mission, he couldn't bring himself to go back out into the bush. Sergeant (USMC) Evan "Dodger" Winslow is a super-competent soldier who chose to spend most of his time in the bush, not for glory, but to help keep as many other soldiers alive as he possibly could. A quiet sort, he generally kept to himself, befriending only a handful of people -- Boonie, McMurphy, and Cherry. Major (Army) Lila Garreu was a career Army woman, whose service stretched back to World War II, where she'd been stationed in London. She was, by default, Administrator at China Beach, a job she took very (almost too) seriously. Private (Army) Samuel Beckett was head of the Graves Registration Unit. He was a quiet, friendly man who got along well with the others at China Beach, though his position made him unpopular with most of the soldiers that passed through. Cherry White was a Red Cross volunteer, who was so innocent as to be unbelievable. But opposites attract, and among her best friends at China Beach were hooker K.C. and ace soldier Dodger, though she was well-liked by everyone. Cherry volunteered for Red Cross duty in Vietnam in an effort to find her older brother who disappeared while on tour there. She was killed during the 1968 Tet Offensive. Captain (USAF) Bartholomew "Natch" Austen was a "zoomie", a fighter pilot who carried on an affair with McMurphy for a while. Laurette Barber was a singer with the USO, who spent a brief time at China Beach before hitting the big time with a major USO show. Private (Army) Frances "Frankie" Bunsen was a young black woman who did mostly odd jobs during her tour at China Beach. For the bulk of her time there, she worked as a DJ for the Armed Services Network and in the Motor Pool. Airman (USAF) Wayloo Marie Holmes came to China Beach as a reporter for the Armed Services Network to make a promotional documentary about the facility. She eventually left for a broadcast news job with ABC. Sergeant (Army) Bartholomew "Bub" Pepper, a.k.a. "Sarge", was the stereotypical career sergeant with experience coming out his ears, and a rather abrasive, and bigoted, personality (though in looks, he resembled a large teddy bear). Private (Army) Jeff Hyers was a young field medic who always seemed insufferably cheerful. He was shot and killed while on patrol in the bush. Holly Pellegrino, another insufferably cheerful person, was another Red Cross "donut dolly", whose duties mostly consisted of arranging various entertainment activities.

[Sarge Pepper] Rule #1: Try to look unimportant. They might be low on ammo. Rule #2: All five-second grenade fuses are three seconds. Rule #3: Never share a foxhole with anyone who is braver than you are. Rule #4: Friendly fire...isn't. Rule #5: Remember that all your equipment was made by the lowest bidder. Rule #6: When you've secured an area, don't forget to tell the enemy. They may have other plans. Rule #7: Anything you do can get you shot, including doing nothing. Rule #8: Teamwork is essential. It gives them other people to shoot at. Rule #9: Expect the unexpected, but remember you can't depend on it. Rule #10: You are not Superman, but sometimes imagining that you are is the only thing that saves you. On the other hand, it can also kill you. Rule #11: Do what you have to do. 33 "How to Stay Alive in Vietnam, Part II" Written by Georgia Jeffries Directed by Steven Dubin McMurphy befriends a Cambodian who'd been pressed into service by the Viet Cong but had defected to the South, and tries to intervene when he's accused of betraying an ARVN force to the V.C.
