  • "I am in love and he doesn't even know I exist" ~Hawkeye Pierce

    10
    I love all of the crazy stunts Hawkeye pulls inorder to get Trapper and him sometime off. I think it's hilarious when Hawkeye tells Captain Sherman that the reason he's acting this way is because he's in love with Major Bruns, "Frank". However this backfires on Hawkeye when Captain Sherman demands that Hawkeye goes to Toyko with him for some observations, but Hawkeye and Trapper triumph at the end by making Captain Sherman believe that the woman of his dreams, Margaret, infact really likes him. Just remember folks, make sure you don't have any trouble with your gyroscope.moreless
