    • TRIVIA (2)

      • The two soldiers that meet Col. Potter at the start of the episode are a 2nd Lieutenant and a First Sergeant. The following goofs apply: (1) the lieutenant salutes Col. Potter, but the enlisted 1st Sergeant does not. Sometimes a high ranking NCO doesn't respect officers, but he's still required to salute them, (2) what is a 1st Sergeant doing on a field patrol with a 2nd lieutenant? Most 1st sergeants work at the company garrison level alongside colonels and lieutenant colonels, not junior officers, and are rarely seen in the field.

      • Hawkeye and BJ are tending a patient while Margaret and Klinger try to distract Colonel Potter from going into his tent until Hawkeye and BJ have finished. Why didn't they just get Colonel Potter to tend to the patient, which would keep him busy and allow the others to prepare the party? Of course we wouldn't have an episode then, but still.....

    • QUOTES (4)

      • (Potter hangs up with the bank, angry after finding out that Mildred had removed the savings)
        Potter: I knew it! She went and bought the HOUSEBOAT! (Potter throws some papers in the air)
        Klinger: Good sir, get it out of your system.
        (Potter gets ready to throw Mildred's picture)
        Klinger: Don't do that sir, you'll never forgive yourself.
        Potter: (to the picture) It's lucky for you, he was here.

      • B.J.: It's not every day you get a letter from the boss's wife. What does she say?
        Hawkeye: I'm reading this as fast as I can. Last time I saw handwriting like this was on my diploma.
        B.J.: It'll go faster if you move your lips.

      • Margaret: We're going to have to keep Colonel Potter out of his tent. I'll handle that.
        Klinger: No offense, Major, but that's going to require sneakiness and dishonesty. So I'll be your technical adviser.

      • B.J.: Go get the booze. I'll catch up in fifteen minutes. And hold that party till I get there.
        Hawkeye: I have to. You're the only one who looks good in your lampshade.
