    • Col. Potter: Well if it isn't budget cuts, what in Sam Hill are you here for?
      Williamson: Gentlemen, in my work for Congressman Laury, I have unearthed some news that will come to you as a severe shock. The real enemy we are fighting is within America itself.
      Hawkeye: (sarcastically) Oh, wait a minute, suddenly it all makes sense. We're in the wrong country. It's not North and South Korea we should be fighting, it's North and South Dakota.
      BJ: We could be going home weekends.
      Col. Potter: Will you two put a cork in it? I think this lad has got something serious stuck in his craw.
      Williamson: Right Colonel, this is quite serious. Congressman Laury has obtained incontravertable evidence that this M*A*S*H unit is harboring a communist sympathizer.
      (Hawkeye and BJ look dumbfounded)
      Col. Potter: One of my people, a commie? Who are you talking about?
      Williamson: Major Margaret Houlihan.

    • (Williamson is accusing Margaret of being a communist sympathizer and threatening to prosecute her for it)
      BJ: Don't tell this snake anything!
      Williamson: Bad advice. By her silence, she would be implicating herself in the red menace.
      Hawkeye: (furious) DON'T TELL US ABOUT THE RED MENACE! WE'RE UP TO OUR ANKLES IN IT! IT COMES OUT OF THOSE KIDS YOU KEEP SENDING US!

    • Margaret: You sure you two want to be seen with me?
      Hawkeye: Are you kidding? Do you think I want to be seen with him? He eats with his fingers.
      B.J. Hunnicutt: I can't let 'em eat alone.

    • Father Mulcahy: You know it's not in my nature to be suspicious, but I found some of Mr. Willamson's questions highly personal.
      Hawkeye: I find his person highly questionable.

    • Hawkeye: Williamson's case has more holes in it than my combat boots.
      BJ: And it doesn't smell as good.

    • Nurse: Any instructions, doctor?
      Hawkeye: Yes, meet me in x-ray in an hour and wear something filmy.

    • Colonel Potter: I don't get to read too many papers here, the newsboy keeps throwing them in the minefield.

    • Williamson: You've been duped by a communist sympathizer.
      Winchester: What a coincidence, so have you.

    • Hunnicutt: Klinger, is there someone in there?
      Klinger: (hiding in Margaret's wall locker) No, I've been in here for twenty minutes and I haven't seen anybody.

    • Williamson: Do you always treat enemy soldiers?
      Hawkeye: Of course not, only if they're sick.

    • Hawkeye: Freedom! Disgusting! Next thing you know they'll be threatening us with liberty and justice for us all!

  • Notes

    • This episode took its cue from the Senate hearings that looked into Communist infiltration of the military. Of course, the person who spurred on those hearings was Senator Joe McCarthy.

    • This is the first of 16 episodes written by Mumford and Wilcox, occasionally with other writers. The last is the final episode.
