Episodes you refuse to watch

This may be a recycled topic, not entirely sure, but I was curious if there are episodes that you refuse to watch, especially those of us who own all 11 seasons on DVD.

"Edwina" even though there's some great physical comedy by Alan in this episode, I usually skip over it when watching Season 1. The Army-Navy Game is one I have trouble watching for 2 reasons, one being my favorite uncle who died a long time ago loved going to the Army-Navy game and also when my wife suffered a miscarriage this episode was on our TV (before we owned the DVDs) so I am reminded of that. Dreams I can't get into watching. Hawkeye is one I skip over. Henry's last episode, Radar's last episodes (2 parter) and GFA I never watch. Fallen Idol I can't bear to watch nor Potter's Retirement. Dislike episodes where Hawk & BJ are at odds, like Commander Pierce and Preventative Medicine where Hawk removes a healthy appendix from a gung-ho colonel and BJ (rightfully) strongly disapproves. Just curious episodes you avoid watching if any, and the reason(s) why.

I'll probably post again...I'm forgetful and I'm sure others will come to mind.
You listed a few - Henry's last one, Radar's last ones, Hawkeye.
The Mariette Hartley episode - I have a hard time seeing Hawkeye as that much of a chauvinist, although that probably just me.
Comrades in Arms - They were determined to get Hawkeye and Margaret together somehow; I just didn't get the premise. At least Hawkeye had the sense to escape after the deed was done.

There aren't any episodes I REFUSE to watch, I don't think, but there are some that I don't bother watching anymore (maybe someday, if I commit to a thorough chronological viewing). Among the early seasons, I'm not crazy about Major Fred C. Dobbs, because I think the premise is so silly. But I think that's it.

I don't bother watching Our Finest Hour, since it's a best-of.

In the last few seasons, there are a bunch of episodes I skip:

--April Fools
--Tell It to the Marines
--Taking the Fifth
--Oh, How We Danced
--The Foresight Saga
--Follies of the Living - Concerns of the Dead
--Heroes
--The Moon is Not Blue
--Run For the Money
--U.N., the Night and the Music
--Strange Bedfellows
--Say No More
--Give and Take

Pretty much any episode from the dark and preachy Seasons 8-11.

Otherwise, there really aren't any specific episodes I refuse to watch persay, but rather, there are some episodes I tend to skip, such as "For the Good of the Outfit," "A Full Rich Day," "Hawkeye," "Exorcism," "Tea and Empathy," to name a few.
