  • Quotes

    • Hawkeye: I'll bet he called me every name in the book.
      Frank: Oh, let's see, uh, 'two-faced,' 'ratfink,' and, uh, uh, 'Ferret Face.'
      Hawkeye: He called me 'Ferret Face?'
      Frank: Well, he was so mad he thought you were me!

    • Klinger: These mail things are great. My friend Vito met his wife that way.
      Radar: She was a pen pal?
      Klinger: No, she was a mailman.
      Radar: What a provocative anecdote!
      Klinger: Watch your mouth!

    • Potter: (looking at a report Radar is trying to write with fancy words) Enough boy, enough! This whole unit's gonna get a Section 8!

    • Radar (in a letter): Dear Mom, I gave up the writing course on account I found out I can write better as myself than as Hemingway, O'Neill, or any of those other bums. And it doesn't cost me anything. Give my love to everybody, especially my nephews. (pauses to think) Simplistically yours, Walter.

    • (Klinger is pretending to set himself on fire to get out of the army)
      Klinger: Who put gasoline in my gasoline?

  • Allusions

    • Hawkeye says, "Don't change a hair for me," and BJ replies, "Not if you care for me." These are lines from the classic jazz song "My Funny Valentine." The song originally appeared in a 1939 Rodgers and Hart musical called Babes in Arms.
