  • Episode Description
  • After 24 hours of surgery, Hawkeye and Potter venture off to a Korean hospital to lend a hand. Hawkeye is appalled to learn that he must carry a gun. After helping the Koreans, they are shelled on the way back. They scramble from the jeep before it is shelled, and Potter urges Hawkeye to shoot in self-defense, against Hawkeye's will, and he does...into the air.

    • Klinger: It's true; now I know why the sounds of violins set my blood on fire. Why I'm so attracted to store-front windows. Why, when I smell paprika, I face toward Budapest. Why I have the urge to roam! Potter: Zoltan, roam the hell out of here.

    • Hawkeye: I believe my life is about to pass before my eyes. Potter: Let me know when it does. I love a parade. Hawkeye: Even short ones?

    • Potter: May I commandeer this deck for one minute? Igor: But, sir, look... (Shows him his cards) Potter: Holy cow! (The others players fold) Sorry, son.

    • (Col. Potter is painting a portrait of Hawkeye when Klinger bursts in) Klinger: I am Zoltan, King of the Gypsies! Hawkeye: You just made my day!

    • BJ: I'm so bushed I can't remember my last patient. Hawkeye: He had quintuplets. BJ: Oh, yeah.

    • This is the only episode where Hawkeye actually fires a gun.

    • Neither Mulcahy or Radar appear in this episode.

    • This is the first of 4 appearances by Phyllis Katz, as various Nurses, her final appearance being in episode 164.

    Trivia (1)

    • Colonel Potter looks at Klinger's letter and says, "I don't read Gypsy." The actual word for the Gypsy language is Romani. Whether Klinger can actually write in this language is unclear. He may have just written a letter in gibberish and figured nobody in the camp could tell the difference.

    Allusions (2)

    • The title is a parody to the title of the musical "Annie Get Your Gun."
