    Another good moment is when he's toasting his friends who have passed on in the episode "Old Soldiers".

    I like his "Potterisms": "Horse Hockey" "Bull Cookies" "Buffalo Bagels" I'll add to this when I hear them again or think of some more.

    They were all so funny.

    That to was my favorite. I also liked the episode that Radar gave him Sophie for his anniversary.

    I love his little rant in "Nurse Doctor".

    "...Here's what we're going to do, you (to Hawkeye) stop talking about her, you (to Margaret) stop hating her, and you (to Mulcahy) stop dating her!"

    Oh I had forgotten about that one. Yeah that's great! He has such a way with words!

    That's one of my favorites if not my favorite episode. I like the way he said that whole speech. What he said, the tone of voice, perfect.

    Here's a thought:

    Harry Morgan + Col. Potter= Harry Potter

    Wish I could say I was the genius behind it, but I got off of this website:

    It would make a great movie.

    Sound good to me. Here's one. When he was a father figure to a wounded soldier who was being picked on by other soldiers in his outfit because he didn't drink and was still a virgin.

    I remember that episode. He enjoyed some of Colonel Potter's stuff, and wished he knew his father, but he thought his father would be just like Colonel Potter, which was very thoughtful of him to say.

    Yes, they do. I'm sure even Radar did before he left.

    He was afraid of him at first and even expressed that to Hawkeye, but in the end he looked up to him and respected him like everyone else did.
