    • QUOTES (3)

      • Winchester: Where did Klinger put the post-op files?
        Margaret: I don't know, look under "p".
        Winchester: Post-op under "p"? That is the one place I know it would not be. These were not filed by a homo sapien. The last files I found were under "g" for "getting better".
        Margaret: Then what do you think we should do?
        Winchester: Burn the damn place down and take a tax loss.

      • (Margaret, Winchester, BJ, and Hawkeye are trying to clean up Klinger's office. Father Mulcahy walks in and closes the door to keep Col. Potter out)
        Father Mulcahy: Is it true that pigs are smarter than horses?
        Col. Potter: Padre, go ask a pig and a horse. Whichever one gives you a better answer, that's the one. Now let me in my blessed office! I've never wrassled a priest before, but God knows you're giving a reason to. (He pushes the door open and sees the mess) What in Samuel Hill hit this place?!
        Margaret: This is not as bad as it looks.
        Col. Potter: NOTHING could be as bad as this looks!

      • (Col. Potter recently found out that Hawkeye had told people about his blood pressure)
        Father Mulcahy: Colonel, you're not going to drink that coffee, are you?
        Col. Potter (to Hawkeye): You even blabbed to the priest! Is nothing sacred to you?!
