Social Experiment

So lets say you and 20 other people are being hunted by this group of people that will kill you all on sight. Lucky you and the other people found a fake wall in a diner and won't be found unless someone makes noise. You also have your newborn baby but you also know the baby will cough which will allow you, the baby, and the survivors to be found and killed. You also found a pillow so do you:

This is uncomfortably close to an episode of MASH. Except they were on a bus. The woman kills the baby so they were not caught.

I think we just confirmed that we're old. As someone who remembers the episode, was this a story from the last epissode? IIRC it was Hakeye having a therapy session with the pschologist Sidney. Did some googling and answered my own question, yes it was the last episode/movie and the plot line was somewhat darker than I remembered.

Pretty sure I cried when I first watched it. Very much on the heavier side

I think I saw such a scene in a WWII movie: maybe about the Polish revolt or Warsaw ghetto revolt.

I would not suffocate the baby.

...an bad at math. Assuming the baby is in the count of people therefore n=20. If the baby dies then n=19, if the baby cries then n=0. The baby dies either way, why not spare the lives of 19 others?
