    These are all wonderful! I'm pretty new here and I've read all nine pages of this thread. So many great quotes!

    I could never choose a favorite. But I recently saw "White Gold" (Season 3, Ep 23). I love the exchange between Henry and Frank concerning Col. Flagg:

    Frank: Well, Flagg wanted to get on with his torture, and, you know, three's a crowd.

    Henry: Well I'll not have anyone tortured at the 4077th, Frank. WE'RE A HOSPITAL!!!

    ...

    Frank: Well, uh...He ordered me to leave. He's a superior officer.

    Henry: He's a superior psycho. His head's so twisted, he's gotta screw his cap on.

    My favorite MASH quotes:

    Frank Burns - Sick people make me sick! - Air Raid! Air Raid! - Disgusting! Disgusting! Why is it every time I come in here it's Disgusting? (Then Hawkeye says) - I think that about says it all.

    Hawkeye (while playing paddle ball) - You know, they ruined this game when they added the ball.

    Colonel Flagg - Don't play dumb with me, you're not as good at it as I am! - He understands, they all do!

    Radar - How's my fainting going to help?

    Colonel Potter (while drunk and just falling down) - Did I just fall down? I didn't think so!

    Klinger (while drunk) - I don't know, but I bet the new clumpany kurk screwed it up!

    B.J. (while drunk) - Hello Ferret Face!

    Which episode did the 'Hawkeye paddle ball' quote come from?

    It's a good one, but I can't seem to place it.

    I have made that quote my motto long since. And I recommend everyone to do the same A little bit of insanity is always good for your mental health. Keeps you from going gaga.

    One of my favorite quotes is when Hawk gives the eulogy at his own funeral. Where he tells everyone he loves them. I don't remember how it goes, but it's really touching.



    Doesn't he tell everybody he loves them at Millie Carpenter's funeral? I don't remember him having a funeral. I thought he just had a wake.


    He does, I actually just watched that episode. I loved it!

    I've written down a few quotes myself...

    "You're doing something really decent in the middle of a giant indecency."
    -Hawkeye, I think in that episode 'Rainbow Bridge' (3x02)

    "I just don't know why they're shooting at us. All we want to do is bring them democracy and white bread. Transplant the American dream. Freedom. Achievement. Hyperacidity. Affluence. Flatulence. Technology. Tension. The unalienable right to an early coronary sitting at your desk while plotting to stab your boss in the back."
    -Hawkeye (can't think of the episode right now, but I think this quote is quite accurate ^^)

    "If there's ever anything I can do for you, let me know."
    "How about arresting this war for disturbing the peace?"
    -Sergeant Maxwell and Hawkeye, don't know what episode..

    Col. Potter: I love a nurse with hot lips. Wanna know why?
    BJ: Why?
    Col. Potter: Exactly! (he trips and falls; BJ and Hawkeye help him up) Did I fall down?
    Hawkeye: No.
    Col. Potter: Didn't think so.


    Radar: (drunken) My bear went off!


    Frank: (holding Radar's teddy bear) Don't tell me he sleeps with you.
    Radar: I'm hoping to do better, sir.


    Father Mulcahy: Ya know, you can't miss if you got good material.

    Mine comes from second season episode entitled "Crisis". The supply line has been cut and it's freezing cold. Henry is seen talking on the phone to HQ. His desk is short, someone has cut of the desk legs for firewood. Henry says,


    "To cut of a man's legs and steal his drawers is just dirty pool."
