    Trivia, Notes, Quotes and Allusions


    • TRIVIA (2)

      • Charles makes the statement that his sister Honoria eloped with a farmer, and then abandoned him and started living with a shoe salesman. In the very next episode, he will mention an incident that took place during his sister's wedding. In a later episode, Charles will get bent out of shape because his sister plans to marry an Italian.

      • Hawkeye is afraid of mice in this episode. He hasn't been in previous episodes, nor has he been afraid of rats. Isn't it a bit odd that he is scared of mice but not rats?

    • QUOTES (6)

    • NOTES (2)

      • Amphetamines will later be used to treat Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder (ADHD) under the name Adderall

      • This is the second episode to take its title from the novel "Dr. Jekyll and Mr. Hyde", the first being Season 2's "Dr. Pierce and Mr. Hyde", in which Hawkeye can't rest and insists on continuing operating despite three days without sleep.

    • ALLUSIONS (4)

      • Hawkeye: I come to bury Sluggo, not to praise him.

        Hawkeye is paraphrasing from Shakespeare again. Julius Caesar, Act 3, Scene 2:

        "I come to bury Caesar, not to praise him.
        The evil men do lives after them.
        The good is oft interred with their bones."

      • The title is a reference to the Book 'Dr.Jekyll and Mr.Hyde' written by Robert Louis Stevenson.

      • One of the Marines says, "There's an officer born every minute." PT Barnum said, "There's a sucker born every minute," so the Marine's comment was definitely unflattering to officers.

      • Hawkeye says, "Friends, corpsman, lend me your ears." He was paraphrasing Mark Anthony's speech in Julius Caesar.
