      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: Bored.
      BJ: So bored.

      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.
