    • Potter: Klinger, this is the actual Pentagon. How'd you get through? Klinger: It was easy sir. First I told them I was General Embry and they said they'd do their best. Then I told them I was General Embry's girlfriend. The next voice I heard said 'Hello, Pentagon.' Potter: I don't know whether to have you promoted or court martialed.

    • Potter: Klinger! Klinger: You rattled the rafters, sir? Potter: What is going on in Post Op? Is that the Padre doing all that caterwauling? Klinger: Yes, just a little sermon to the Greek and Turk from the Book of Threats.

    • Charles: Gentlemen, ten years from now, I shall shut myself in the library, pour myself a snifter of cognac, think back on the memory of this evening, and...upchuck.

    • (A Greek and Turkish soldier blow off Father Mulcahy as he tries to break up their fight) Father Mulcahy: Is that so?! Well, don't let this saintly demeanor fool you. I happen to be pretty handy with my dukes. I could flatten you both and not even work up a sweat. So I suggest you remember what it says in the good book: love thy neighbor, or I'll PUNCH YOUR LIGHTS OUT!!! YOU GOT THAT?! (the two immediately stop fighting)

    • (Klinger told Father Mulcahy he will be making Captain) Potter: Klinger, you got a mouth as big as the Missouri Gap! Hello, Padre. That efficency report was supposed to be confidential! Klinger: Sir, you were eavesdropping on my private conversation. Potter: Right now, Corporal, I wouldn't mention the word "private" if I were you!
