Trivia and Quotes

Quotes (6)

  • Harry: (on going home to Muskegon) I don't think I ever enjoyed myself more than going to high school, here. I was very enthusiastic about coming back and it's regretful that it's too short a time to visit. There really was no reason to come back before. Most of my close friends and relatives have gone elsewhere. I've been invited to the class reunions, but the arrangements were too complicated.

  • Harry: (on AfterMASH) AfterMASH just never worked. We did everything we could think of to fix it, but nothing helped. They kept changing the cast. I had two different ladies playing my wife, for example, but nothing helped. I think, now, that it just wasn't a good idea in the first place.

  • Harry: He was firm. He was a good officer and he had a good sense of humor. I think it's the best part I ever had. I loved playing Colonel Potter.

  • Harry: (on the ending of MASH) The sadness will fade after a while. The cup is so damn full that you can't really be sad that you don't have any more. We've all gotten so much more than we ever would have doing anything else. That will last a long, long time.

  • Harry: There'll never be another 'MASH.' There's nothing in the way of doing your best work on this set, absolutely nothing.

  • Harry: Just remember, there's a right way and a wrong way to do everything and the wrong way is to keep trying to make everybody else do it the right way.
