If a cool dip in a bathtub is so wonderful, why doesn't Hawkeye dig up the swimming pool he enjoyed with Trapper and Henry in Episode 65?
(Klinger rushes into the pre-op looking hot and dehydrated and on the verge of collapsing.)
Klinger: Hey, Doc! Can you spare a salt pill?
Hawkeye: (disgusted) Oh, Klinger! Come on! Get off it, will ya?
Klinger: Not when I've come this far. I don't care if they send me back in an eyedropper as long as they send me back. Where do you keep the salt pills?
(Colonel Potter walks in.)
Potter: Somebody asking for salt pills?
(Klinger stands up straight.)
Klinger: Salt pills? Oh, uh, no, not for me, sir! Some of the other people are having problems with the heat. Weak constitutions, quitters, that sort of thing. I thought I'd spend my last day helping the others. As for myself, sir, I'm fresh as a daisy.
B. J.: But you smell like a garlic blossom.
Mulcahy: Morning, B.J.
B.J.: Oh, good morning, Father. Hot enough for you?
Mulcahy: Purgatorial. I like to think of it as a sinner's sneak preview.
PA Announcer: Attention! The Pierce-Hunnicut bathtub will remain open on a first-come, first-soap basis. Your cooperation is appreciated, but not expected.
Col. Potter: Steady, steady. You want more suction?
Hawkeye: Just more silence.
Col. Potter: Okay, okay. But sometimes the simple operations prove to be the trickiest.
BJ: I had a professor who stitched that on a cadaver.
Rhoden: Here's something nobody can resist. (moves between Hawkeye and Radar) Stag films guaranteed to make a grown man blush. (looks at Radar) Probably kill you.
Charles: (describing Klinger) That man is the Michelangelo of deviant behavior.
Hawkeye: Radar, don't pick at your food. It'll never heal.
Margaret: I want it!
Hawkeye: Women often have that reaction when they see me naked.
Charles: Your middle-class sense of decency and fair play will overcome the malice you now bear me, and soon I shall be luxuriating in that canvas Xanadu. And if that craps out, I'll just bribe you silly.
Hawkeye: To willpower! Now quick drink, before I run after him.
Potter: That's one way out of this man's army.
Klinger: I always thought of it as That Man's army.
Father Mulcahy: I have a good mind to baptise you both, in dirty water.
Ted Gehring (Sergeant Clifford Rhoden) also played Major Morris in "The Incubator" (Season 2).
The episode title is a play on the classic 1959 movie Some Like It Hot, which starred Marilyn Monroe, Jack Lemmon and Tony Curtis.
Hawkeye: Good Lord! Tom Sawyer and Becky are still lost down there!
Refers to the Mark Twain book, Tom Sawyer, during which the children Tom and Becky become lost in a deep cave system for a great deal of time, and are nearly given up for dead.
