  • Quotes (8)

    • Father Mulcahy: I might be able to arrange a drop. Col. Potter: It's gonna take a lot more than a drop, Padre! Father Mulcahy: I mean, with the black market. Col. Potter: Not advisable. Those boys play rough. Hawkeye: Yeah, they cut your nose off to spite your face! Margaret: And besides, who'd be low enough to have connections with those tarantulas? Father Mulcahy: As a matter of fact, me. Margaret: You? Hawkeye: Why, you devil, you! Father Mulcahy: I've dealt with the black market to get supplies for the orphans. You can get practically anything. Hawkeye: Yeah, but you have to give them practically everything! Father Mulcahy: Not always...you'd be surprised what a priest can get away with!

    • Father Mulcahy (about Charles): He was a real blessing out there, Colonel, and God willing, I'll never be blessed with him again.

    • Radar (after being told to wake everyone up): It's going to be kind of hard to wake up Major Winchester since he went off with Father Mulcahy. Colonel Potter: He didn't. Radar: Okay, he didn't. But he did.

    • (Margaret wakes Hawkeye from a nap) Hawkeye: Margaret? This can't be heaven, I've only been dead five minutes.

    • Patient (getting stitches while under local anesthesia): Is the anesthetic gonna hold, Doc? Hawkeye (looking at the nurse): The only pain you're going to feel is when you find out she's married.

    Trivia (2)

    • In this episode, Charles loses (to the black marketeers) the winterized suit that he flaunted in front of everybody in "Baby, It's Cold Outside." Serves him right!

    • Radar calls the 8055th M*A*S*H unit to try to get some sodium pentathol; this is the original M*A*S*H unit on which the book, movie and tv show were based.
