      • Radar: (on the phone) I can't hear you! Boy, you've got the war on loud there!

      • (Ordering drinks in Tokyo)
        Borelli: What are you drinking?
        Trapper: I'd love a zombie.
        Hawkeye: Necrophiliac.
        Borelli: A zombie, please.
        Bartender: Yes, sir.
        Trapper: And keep making them until I turn into one.

      • Frank (To Margaret, who's been staring at Borelli): Well, a person doesn't have to be an eye doctor to see what's going on here.
        Margaret: I don't know what you're talking about, Frank.
        Frank: Keep drooling down your front, you'll have to change your bra.

      • (Talking about Frank and Margaret)
        Borelli: What's the story with those two?
        Hawkeye: He's a creep.
        Trapper: She's a creepette.
        Hawkeye: They met in adjoining jars in medical school.

      • (Explosions outside)
        Henry: Artillery.
        Borelli: Ours?
        Henry: And theirs.
        Trapper: It's a set.

      • Borelli: I didn't drink at all in World War I.
        Hawkeye: Was liquor invented then?
        Borelli: In the second war I never drank until I was through working.
        Hawkeye: One for the road, Doc? Or two, or three? Maybe you'd like to take a few home in a doggie bag.
        Borelli: Please don't confuse my explanation for an apology. The place got to me. I wanted to get into the game, but I'd forgotten how rough the game can be.
        Hawkeye: Uh-huh.
        Borelli: Didn't you ever have that problem?
        Hawkeye: (after a pause) Not to your degree.
        Borelli: (points at the still) What's that you're leaning on, a bubble gum machine? You have a great many gifts, Doctor, it's a pity you can't number compassion among them. I'm suffering from the three sure signs of age: a bit of a spread, gray hair, feet of clay. I wish you better luck on your third war.

    • NOTES (1)

      • The late Robert Alda was the father of series star Alan Alda. This was the senior Alda's first appearance as Doctor Borelli. He would make a later appearance in the episode "Lend a Hand". That episode would also feature an appearance by Alan Alda's half brother Anthony.
