  • Old wounds resurface

    Good, rare insight into Hawkeye's past as a nurse he used to date (then live with) during his residency shows up at the 4077th. What makes it more interesting (as the years have gone by) is that she is now married. Col. Potter's hobby during down time seems to be painting; first it's Radar with a pouch (was he hopping up and down too) and then Klinger, who would liven up any painting! Hawkeye and

    Carlye (the nurse) find it difficult to work together in the O. R. given their past together (saw that coming; would be hard for me too methinks).moreless

Trivia, Notes, Quotes and Allusions


  • TRIVIA (2)

    • Hawkeye: There's been no one since you. Faint copies at best. Hawkeye seems to have forgotten that he planned to marry one of those "faint copies"--Lt. Erika Johnson, of the second season episode "Radar's Report".

    • While Klinger is posing for a painting by Col. Potter, he says, "I'd like to send my wife a copy". Klinger's wife is named Laverne. He married her over the radio during the episode "Springtime."

  • QUOTES (7)

    • (BJ has expressed his disappointment that Hawkeye is dating a married woman)
      Hawkeye: Ever checked in somewhere without a toothbrush?
      BJ: Never.
      Hawkeye: Never been tempted?
      BJ: Tempted's another subject.
      Hawkeye: Ah, you have been tempted.
      BJ: Never. But it's another subject.

    • Hawkeye (to BJ, imitating Groucho Marx): Tell our first couple what else they've won, Fenneman.
      BJ (offering Welcome Wagon trinkets from a box to Carlye & Becky): This bar of soap...from those who'll be working closely with you in O. R. Please use at least once a week.
      Hawkeye (pulling a bottle of shampoo out of the box): Shampoo.
      BJ: Because we couldn't find any real poo.

    • Carlye (to Hawkeye): Look at yourself! Look where you are! You're trapped! You just proposed yourself into a corner!
      Hawkeye: So? However I did it, I did it.
      Carlye: You didn't propose to me, you proposed to yourself!
      Hawkeye: Well, I wanted to try it out on me first.

    • Hawkeye: Bored.
      BJ: So bored.
      Hawkeye: So bored it's boring.
      BJ: Boring-a-ding-ding.
      Hawkeye: Boronus, boretis, boremus. I came, I saw, I bored.
      BJ: He bored, she bored, they bored.
      Hawkeye: All aboard.
      BJ: I was going to say that.

    • Father Mulcahy: I'd like your permission to return these, sir. The quarter-master sent us a gross of new Bibles, and there seem to be quite a number of typographical errors.
      Colonel Potter: Oh?
      Father Mulcahy: Uh, here's the first one. "Thou shalt commit adultery."
      Colonel Potter: Well, that's the new Army, Father.
      Father Mulcahy: Let's hope it's a typo. These lads are trained to take orders.

    • Radar: Major Burns said to fix the lights in surgery.
      Hawkeye: Right, he's afraid to sleep in the dark.

    • B.J.: Minding my own business is a full-time job. In my spare time, it's my hobby. I can't divide myself emotionally. I couldn't break my word to Peg, and not because God will send me to Hell without an electric fan or because it's not the right thing to do. I simply don't want to.
      Hawkeye: You've got a lot to learn about messing up your life.
