  • This is Frank at his weasely best!

    10
    I particularly love when Frank (while reviewing the Korean civillians - who do odd jobs around camp and Radar acts as go-between/interpreter), says, "No more come and go as you like-y," in complete earnesty. Perfectly exemplifying how boorish he was as to ridicule them by making fun of their stereotyped speech pattern, without out even missing a beat! It was just him being him and Larry Linville was superb at it, and was vastly under-rated as the foil, especially as the humor got more cerebral with the injection of B.J., and not quite as "zany" as the first episodes.

    This episode also shows us the Radar character at his/its' best. As when he is following Frank down the assembled Koreans undoing all of the nonsense Frank was trying to add to their already insane daily lives!moreless

    • (Frank digs up what he thinks is a bomb)
      BJ: What smells?
      Hawkeye: Frank's bomb. (grabs the pot)
      Frank: Don't!
      Hawkeye: (opens it) It's a kimchee pot, Frank. Kimchee. Pickled cabbage. They ferment it in the ground. There are millions of these buried all over Korea.
      BJ: I'd get title to this land, Major, before word gets out.
      Frank: Huh?
      Hawkeye: Don't you understand, man? You've struck cole slaw!
      (Embarrassed, Frank storms off)
      BJ: (applauding) Let's hear it for the major, folks!
      Hawkeye: Isn't he great? He'll be back, folks, just after he changes for the 11:00 bomb.

    • Frank: (speaking of Hawkeye) He always gets the cowboys and I'm stuck with the Indians.
      Potter: I'm one-fourth Cherokee.
      Frank: Oh. (raises his hand) How.

    • PA Announcer: Captain Hunnicutt, please report to the hospital.
      BJ: Major Burns probably taped himself to a patient again.

    • BJ (to Zale): Sergeant, you can't drink this early in the morning. I know, I keep trying.

    • Colonel Spiker: That officer...Pierce! An oddball. Must make an example of him.
      Colonel Potter: He already is, a fine example of an oddball officer. The best!
      Colonel Spiker: Has no respect for the uniform.
      Colonel Potter: Well, he's never in it anyway.
      Colonel Spiker: No respect for authority...no respect for the war.
      Colonel Potter: Whoa, Colonel, whoa.
      Colonel Spiker: I demand disciplinary action against him. If you don't take it, I will.
      Colonel Potter: You? You're only a bunch of tubes running in and out. You have to go to the latrine by remote control. You're a sick man.
      Colonel Spiker: Aahh...
      Colonel Potter: You'd be napping in a mattress cover over at the morgue if it wasn't for Pierce working on you.
      Colonel Spiker: Hmm? (infuriated) He operated? Not you?
      Colonel Potter: Lucky for you, yes!
      Colonel Spiker: But the last thing I said...
      Colonel Potter: (reprimanding tone) Would've been the last thing you ever said. If Pierce wasn't your surgeon, you'd be a bag of cold cuts now. Jumpin' jodhpurs, man! I'm Regular Army, too - hash marks down to the ground! I started in the cavalry. Learned to look at life from the top of a horse. Well, sometimes I feel I'm still on a horse, only now I'm looking down at a horse's...
      Colonel Spiker: I'm not criticizing your command, Colonel. It's that...that goof-off!
      Colonel Potter: That goof-off saved your can. You're alive and kicking, kicking like an Army mule because of that man's skill and dedication as a surgeon. Sufferin' saddle soap! You owe your life to that man!
