    • Trapper: What do we do?
      Hawkeye: I can't think here; there's no booze, the place has been cleaned up within an inch of its life, and your knees are driving me wild.
      Trapper: Get smart with me, soldier? I'm cheap, but I'm not easy.

    • Murphy: Further, these were delivered to your unit, but were not delivered to the officer in charge of supplies, Major Houlihan, according to him. Henry: Her. Murphy: Sir? Henry: Him's a her; she's a she. Murphy: Who's a she? Henry: He is. Murphy: Houlihan? Henry: That's her.

    • (Hawkeye and Trapper walk in on Margaret massaging Frank's face) Hawkeye: I've always said it, behind every great man is a woman with a vibrator.

    • Henry: General, may I say something? (in a strong voice) Before Meg Cratty set up shop, seven out of ten babies born to the hill people never made it past the first few days. My giving her penicillin and what not just made her job alot easier. No money changed hands, and I didn't deprive our own wounded boys of one thing. I'm guilty, that's my explanation. So you can hang my butt from a flagpole.

    • Frank: This outfit is finally going to have a real man in charge! Hawkeye: (shaking Margaret's hand) Good luck, fella. Trapper: You deserve it, guy.

    Trivia (2)

    • Hawkeye and Trapper could have pressed charges against Frank and Hot Lips for what they did. Arresting them to keep them from helping Henry falls under interfering with a trial and stripping them of their clothes falls under cruel and unusual punishment.

    • Goof: When Meg Cratty arrives in the court she is seen wearing an old army shirt, but on the sleeve can be seen the outline of either an E-4 or E-5 Specialist chevron. Unfortunately, the Specialist grades didn't go into effect until July 1, 1955.
