  • Quotes

    • Klinger (about Jenkins): First time on night sentry duty.
      Hawkeye: No problem. If there's anything out there, it'll freeze before it can make trouble.
      Jenkins: Yes, sir.
      Hawkeye: Hey, listen. Everybody's scared.
      Jenkins: Honest?
      Hawkeye: Are you kidding? (points to himself) Winner of the Purple Chicken. With yellow-bellied clusters.

    • (Discussing the Chinese patient)
      Margaret: I don't trust him.
      Frank: I'll bet he understands every word we say.
      Hawkeye: Well, I certainly wouldn't trust anyone who understands us.

    • Colonel Potter: You're trembling son, are you scared?
      Private Jenkins: No sir. Just cold, sir.
      Colonel Potter: If you had any brains, you'd be scared.

    • Frank (about a patient): He's...Chinese.
      Hawkeye: You don't have to whisper Frank, he knows he's Chinese.

    • (BJ is outside the Swamp. A THUMP is heard)
      BJ: Rats! (He comes inside)
      Hawkeye: Who'd you bump into?
      BJ: Just what I said. Rats.

    • Hawkeye: Lie down and rest.
      Klinger: I'd rather do it in my own bed.
      Hawkeye: All right, go back to your tent.
      Klinger: My bed in Toledo.

    • Private Jenkins: Halt, who goes there?
      Radar: It's the Colonel!
      Jenkins: Oh, sorry. Go ahead, sir.
      Colonel Potter: Don't you want to know the password?
      Jenkins: I already know it, sir.

  • Notes

    • In this episode, Klinger says plainly that he is blood type B-positive. In the seventh season episode, "C*A*V*E", he says that he and Major Winchester (and Mulcahy) have the same type. In the season eight episode, ""Lifetime", Winchester says that he is blood type AB-positive. Oops!

    • Here, as Radar wakes him up, Hawkeye drones, "He's dead---dead and drafted." Interestingly, in the very next episode, #G507, "The Late Captain Pierce," The Army will mistakenly list Hawk as dead!
