    Trivia, Notes, Quotes and Allusions

    FILTER BY TYPE

    • TRIVIA (1)

      • Hawkeye calls everyone by name everyone he wants to come to the mess tent for his announcement. Everyone shows up in the moment their name is announced by the speaker, instead of wandering inside in a more normal manner for a gathering. Also, although Ho-Jon is not called for, he shows up anyway.

    • QUOTES (5)

      • Hawkeye: I made it publicly known that there were fingerprints to be found on the stolen articles. Thereby tempting the criminal to repeat his crime...and retrive his ill-gotten booty. Or, his ill-booten gotty. Which he has done. However in so doing, he has exposed himself. (Frank closes his robe)

      • Henry: Look, if you will just tell me what the joke is, we can let things get back to abnormal around here.
        Hawkeye: Joke? You - I don't have that bizarre a sense of humor.
        Henry: Oh! Now, weren't you the one who sent General Barker the brownies with the laxative filling?

      • Hawkeye: And now, the silver vibes of the gentle swizzle stick. (silence) And now, the silver vibes of the gentle swizzle stick. (silence) Ho-Jon?
        Ho-Jon: Stizzle swick not here!
        Hawkeye: Who stole my stizzle swick?

      • (Hawkeye interrogates everyone in the mess tent)
        Frank: Who does he think he is?
        Trapper: The Thin Man?

      • Henry: I assume you've all read my notice concerning the recent crime wave.
        Hawkeye: I would've read it, but the notice was stolen.
