  • Quotes

    • (Henry is appointing a chief surgeon)
      Henry: The job will be a killer.
      Frank: I can adjust.
      Henry: I hope you can. I'm giving it to Pierce.
      Hawkeye: Thanks.
      Frank: What!? You can't! I won't stand for it!
      Henry: Frank, the one thing that will get you nowhere with me is impersonating my wife!
      Frank: What about rank?
      Hawkeye: Can I help it if I'm not as rank as you?
      Frank: This is unheard of!
      Henry: Face it, Pierce is the best cutter in this outfit! He's certified in both chest and general surgery! Frank, in case you haven't read the papers, there's a war on. We're here to patch guys together. We can't be so GI that we lose patients!
      Frank: Are you implying he's a better doctor?
      Henry: Yes! When the heat's on!
      Frank: Well, if you want heat, I'll give you plenty of heat! (He turns to leave)
      Henry: Frank...failure to salute a superior officer.
      (Frank reluctantly salutes Henry)
