    • Klinger (about Jenkins): First time on night sentry duty. Hawkeye: No problem. If there's anything out there, it'll freeze before it can make trouble. Jenkins: Yes, sir. Hawkeye: Hey, listen. Everybody's scared. Jenkins: Honest? Hawkeye: Are you kidding? (points to himself) Winner of the Purple Chicken. With yellow-bellied clusters.

    • (Discussing the Chinese patient) Margaret: I don't trust him. Frank: I'll bet he understands every word we say. Hawkeye: Well, I certainly wouldn't trust anyone who understands us.

    • Colonel Potter: You're trembling son, are you scared? Private Jenkins: No sir. Just cold, sir. Colonel Potter: If you had any brains, you'd be scared.

    • Frank (about a patient): He's...Chinese. Hawkeye: You don't have to whisper Frank, he knows he's Chinese.

    • (BJ is outside the Swamp. A THUMP is heard) BJ: Rats! (He comes inside) Hawkeye: Who'd you bump into? BJ: Just what I said. Rats.

    Notes (2)

    • In this episode, Klinger says plainly that he is blood type B-positive. In the seventh season episode, "C*A*V*E", he says that he and Major Winchester (and Mulcahy) have the same type. In the season eight episode, ""Lifetime", Winchester says that he is blood type AB-positive. Oops!

    • Here, as Radar wakes him up, Hawkeye drones, "He's dead---dead and drafted." Interestingly, in the very next episode, #G507, "The Late Captain Pierce," The Army will mistakenly list Hawk as dead!

    Trivia (1)

    • The password for this episode is "Caribbean," and Klinger and Frank disagree on how to pronounce it.
