    Trivia, Notes, Quotes and Allusions

    FILTER BY TYPE

    • TRIVIA (1)

      • When Colonel Potter phones Radar, Mrs O'Reilly answers the phone, but Colonel Potter thinks its Radar for a few seconds until she explains. This could be a little in-joke at Gary Burghoff, who besides playing Radar also played Radar's mother in Season 4's "Mail Call, Again."

    • QUOTES (3)

      • Mulcahy: What time is it in Iowa?
        Charles: 1882.

      • Klinger: We just shared a moment of great warmth. I think a murder right now would really spoil the mood.

      • (after Klinger sits on Col.Potter's glasses)
        Father Mulcahy: Well, surely you have another pair.
        Potter: Would you like to answer that Klinger?
        Klinger: I broke those last week. But you have to admit Colonel, I really nailed that fly good.

    • NOTES (0)

    • ALLUSIONS (1)

      • The episode title is a variant of The Forsyte Saga, a BBC miniseries that aired in the U.S. in the late 1960s. Its themes of family secrets and things not actually being as they appear is echoed in Radar's letter to the Colonel.
