    Trivia, Notes, Quotes and Allusions

    FILTER BY TYPE

    • TRIVIA (1)

      • This episode is nearly identical to the Season 4 episode "The Bus" in which Hawkeye, B.J., Col. Potter, Frank and Radar get lost on the way back to camp and and run across a Korean soldier who wants to surrender. Soon Tek Oh plays the surrendering soldier in both episodes!

    • QUOTES (8)

      • Hawk: I think he's surrendering. Let's put our hands down.
        BJ: Okay you go first.
        Hawk: Thanks. How about if we just put one down?
        BJ: Show some guts. Put 'em both down. If he doesn't shoot you, I'll put mine down. If he does shoot you, I'll put yours up again.

      • Hawkeye: C'mon, Ralph, let's find more people you can surrender to.

      • (Hawkeye, BJ and "Ralph" are walking back to the 4077th because BJ crashed their jeep. They encounter a Korean man trapped underneath a hay wagon.)
        Hawkeye: Let me introduce ourselves. That's Ralph, I'm Pierce, and this is Hunnicut whom you already know from driving school.

      • Charles: What is that man doing? Is he surrendering?
        B.J.: Shame on you, Charles, for not recognizing the international symbol for touchdown.

      • Hawkeye: I thought you said this was a shortcut!
        BJ: It is a shortcut! Look how fast we got lost!

      • Rizzo: You had to go to Themopolous, didn't you?! I coulda got us good turkeys from a crook you could trust!

      • Klinger: C'mon, I'm trying to help!
        Rizzo: You wanna help? Die on your own!

      • Potter: Your turkeys gave everybody the trots!
        Klinger: My turkeys were first-class birds; genuine Army issue!
        Rizzo: Sure...War Surplus!

    • NOTES (2)

    • ALLUSIONS (1)

      • The episode title is a reference to the Yellow Brick Road from the L. Frank Baum novel and movie The Wizard of Oz. The Yellow Brick road in Oz leads to the Emerald City.
