“For your information,” Nurse Yamato says, “I happen to have a fantastic sense of humor, a bubbly personality and I am warm and sensitive like you wouldn’t believe. I also sing and play the guitar and I’m learning to tap dance. And on top of all that, I happen to be cute as hell.”

When a background character gets her own episode. Nurse Kelly was a fixture on the show from the beginning. Adding depth to the character in tribute to her service on the show was wonderful.

RIP Kellye Nakahara.
Quite rightly remembered as Lt. Nurse across M*A*S*H series.
But if you love CLUE like me, then yep she was the Cook!
Thanks to her we all found the secret passage from the kitchen to the study.
