    • Klinger: There's no end to this furnace. Baste me once before I die. Hawkeye: Didn't you inherit the heat-resistant blood of your forefathers? Klinger: They cut my family out of the will when we moved to Ohio.

    • B.J.: Why don't we forget the movie and just have a sweating contest? Klinger: (In full uniform) Hi, guys! Nice day, isn't it? B.J.: Will you look at him? He's shelveled. Hawkeye: Klinger, have you been seeing an air conditioner behind our backs? Klinger: No need to, Doc. Thanks to those pills you gave me, I'm cool as a cucumber. I'm going for some coffee; can I get you a cup? B.J.: Coffee? Hawkeye: You crazy? (Klinger exits) Looks like I've discovered the cure for the common hot.

    • (the camp is watching The Moon is Blue) Hawkeye: I'm outraged! It's a disgrace. I've never seen a cleaner movie in my life. BJ: There was more filth and dirt in this morning's breakfast. Father Mulcahy: Well, one of the actors did say "virgin." Hawkeye: That's because everyone was.

    • Hawkeye: I thought you went to see Sahara tonight. Charles: Indeed, I did. But, alas, I had to leave when the film broke which was about two seconds after I ripped it from the projector. And I would have been here sooner but I had to stop to accept the cheers of the entire audience.

    • Hawkeye: The only good thing about being here is that we're able to drink and forget that we're here.
