    In my opinion, BJ is the master of puns.

    What are some of your favorites?

    Here are some of mine:

    BJ: "Get along, little dogie"

    Hawkeye: I had a long little doggie once.

    BJ: Really, what kind?

    Hawkeye: He was a dauchsund.

    BJ:Oh, a little hot dog. What happened to him?

    Hawkeye:He got all mustered out.

    BJ:I relish these conversations.

    ------------------------------------------------------------

    Potter: Okay, if anyone needs me, I'll be in my tent marinating the old bunions.

    BJ: Bon appefeet.

    -----------------------------------------------------------

    Simmons: I'm sorry for being so young.

    BJ: That's all right, you'll grow out of it.

    ---------------------------------------------------------

    Hawkeye: I thought you said this was a shortcut!

    BJ: It is a shortcut! Look how fast we got lost!

    Hawkeye: Hey Beej, you got a pen?

    BJ: Why? Somebody mail you a pig?

    "No Suny said than done. I always like looking on the bride side."

    "A fool and his money have just departed."

    Those aren't my favorites, but I do like them a lot.

    From "The Novocaine Mutiny":

    Frank: I'm here to discuss something besides underwear!

    BJ: Make it brief.

    Hawkeye: Oh ho, that's very bad.

    BJ: Not funny, but fast.

    Great ones everyone!

    In the episode where Hawkeye's back hurts.

    Hawkeye: I took an x-ray but I didn't see anything.
    BJ: Nothing? No spine?
    Hawkeye: I thought there'd at least be a spot.
    BJ: Or a Fido, or a Rover...

    Ha ha, all very good. My english teacher in high school said a pun was the lowest form of comedy, but I beg to differ. Especially if it's done with right tempo and timing.

    No offense, but your English teacher in high school sounds narrow minded. I teach English, and I try to show my students the value in all forms of expression. I love B.J.'s puns, and they actually display a high level of intelligence.

    Charles: "Haven't you ever seen truffles before?"

    BJ: "Nobody knows the truffles I've seen."

    This probably doesn't count as a pun, but maybe loosely it does. I likethis fromthe episode when Hawkeye can't tell a joke:

    Scary Big Korean Pimp "Ten dollars or break legs"

    BJ "Give him five dollars for one leg and see how you like it"

    I love that episode!

    The way BJ keeps trying to get Hawkeye to crack a joke, and Hawkeye will respond with some completely serious response...It's great. Unfortunately I'm too tired to think of an example right now.

    BJ "Does a Winchester carry a Deringer?"

    Hawkeye "It seems unlikely."

    I don't know why but the way Hawkeye says that so seriously always makes me laugh

    definitely!

    and the other one about the pajamas, cracks me up. Hawkeye with a serious face...very Leslie Neilson-ish to me.

    I may be mis-remembering.... severe lack of sleep...But I seem to remember BJ asking Hawkeye in reference to a pair of pajamas... I can't remember if they're Margaret's or what? "Are those your pajamas?" And Hawkeye answering straight faced and dead seriously, "I don't have pajamas like that." or something...

    I'll try and find it.

    "I don't have leather pajamas" seems closer...

    Okay I remember that one now. From "No Laughing Matter". I think he said "I don't have any leather pajamas."

    Klinger: Give me five minutes and I'll come back dressed as a nun.

    BJ: Careful Klinger. Dressing as a nun can be habit forming.
