  • Trivia

    • 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

    • Mulcahy: What time is it in Iowa?

    • 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

  • Allusions
