  • Quotes

    • (Father Mulcahy finally gets to eat what he thinks are fresh eggs at the end.)
      Mulcahy: You know, this omelet is not bad. I mean, even with the cheese, the bologna and the onions, you can barely taste the eggs.
      Hawkeye: It's better that way, Father. They're powdered.

    • Gillis: My wife just gave birth.
      Hawkeye: Congratulations!
      BJ: That's great!
      Gillis: NO IT'S NOT!
      (Hawkeye and Bj look confused)
      Gillis: She's just gave birth! I haven't been home in over a year!
      Hawkeye and BJ: (suddenly understanding) Oh.

    • Colonel Potter: How am I gonna teach you two vigilantes to take those captain's bars seriously? If I busted you to privates, you'd think of it as a promotion.
      B.J.: I'm sorry and I'm sure future Private Pierce feels the same way.

    • Father Mulcahy: The missing middle reel of last week's Samson and Delilah has just arrived with the second and fourth reels of this week's movie, Mr. Belvedere Goes to College, starring that always fastidious and equally amusing Clifton Webb. These reels will be shown in as coherent an order as possible tomorrow at 2000 hours.
      B.J.: Thus creating the movie Samson and Mr. Belvedere Go to Delilah.

    • Sal: What stinks?
      Charles: A question you should never ask when within the vicinity of yourself.

    • Pvt. Nick Gillis: (To Hawkeye and B.J.): You guys married?
      Hawkeye: No, it's just we've been through so much together it looks that way.
