Introduction

    
         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.

         McMurphy is on a short fuse when an Army psychiatrist comes to
         China Beach to gather material for a research project on stress

         to be all wrapped up in her coming to terms with Natch's fate.

              Written by    Alan Brennert
              Directed by   Michael Rhodes
    
    
         McMurphy, overworking herself to exhaustion, is forced to take
         R&R until she's had enough rest, and she finds herself up against
         the unrelentingly good-natured Jeff Hyers. Disturbed by the fact
         that so many of the men killed in action weren't old enough to
         have attended their senior prom, she inspires Boonie to put one
         on for the folks at China Beach. And Wayloo's pursuit of Boonie's
         story results in an unforeseen, and unfortunate, consequence.

              Note 1: The asterisks indicate those who have served as a
                      Technical Advisor for the series. Also note that
                      some of these names (or variations of them) were
                      used for characters in the series.
    
              Note 2: The job titles listed for the vets come from the
                      on-screen legend as each was interviewed. Those
                      without such were listed in the closing credits,
                      but their interviews were not in the final cut.
    
              Note 3: See also the third season episode "Souvenirs" (#36),
                      which featured more interviews with actual Vietnam
                      veterans.
    
              Note 3: It had been announced that an expanded version of
                      this episode may be put together as a two-hour
                      special for the Lifetime network, but no further
                      information is known at the present time.

         Boonie's story comes out as Wayloo presses to get him awarded a
         medal for bravery. Unfortunately, it also brings out a board of
         inquiry into what really went on in the bush: a covert operation
         into Laos, headed by a CIA man whose indiscriminate slaughter of
         locals prompted Boonie into a rash action.

         the China Beach regulars, including Sarge's rules for how to stay
         alive in Vietnam.

    	    Sarge's Rules For How To Stay Alive In Vietnam
    
    
    	"Great thing about the military: even though you know that
    	they know that nobody knows what the hell they're doing,
    	everybody pretends that that ain't so."   [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.

                     those who lent their invaluable contributions
                     - our thanks.
    
                    "And to the Vietnam veterans, especially the
                     women who served and who inspired our show,

Appendix A

    
         The following list of actors appearing in CHINA BEACH does not include
         the Vietnam vets interviewed for the episodes "Vets" and "Souvenirs".
         It does include uncredited roles that were noticed by me, and these
         are indicated by a "u" after the episode number. Any member of the
         Principal Cast is listed as being in an episode as long as he or she
         appears in the opening credits, even if he or she doesn't actually
         appear in the given episode. Variations in spelling or credit are
         noted.
