    Trivia, Notes, Quotes and Allusions

    FILTER BY TYPE

    • TRIVIA (2)

      • Private Harker needed type AB negative blood. Why didn't they get it from Winchester instead of having to search around and wait for a drunk bomb disposer? In "Life Time" from Season 8, we found out Winchester is type AB negative.

      • BJ incorrectly identifies the title of a musical composition that Radar is playing during surgery as "Musical Clock." The actual title of the piece is "The Syncopated Clock," by the noted American composer Leroy Anderson. BJ is correct, however, about the use of the piece; it was used as the theme for both The Late Show and The Late, Late Show on WCBS-TV, which, in the 1950's & '60's - before David Letterman and Conan O'Brien - aired old movies after the late news every night.

    • QUOTES (6)

      • B.J.: Would you like to join us?
        Radar: What are you playing?
        Hawkeye: Double Kranko.
        Radar: Yeah....
        Hawkeye: Uh, bishops are worth three Jacks.
        Radar: Right.
        Hawkeye: Checkers are wild.
        Radar: Uh, huh.
        Hawkeye: And you have to be twenty-one or over to open.
        Radar: Uh, huh.
        B.J.: Care to sit in for a hand?
        Hawkeye: You'll get out by dawn.
        Radar: Ah, no thank you, sirs. Whenever I lose, I always like to know why.

      • Zale: I dunno what good Bloody Mary here's gonna do ya, he's on the rocks.
        Potter: You'd be surprised; I've seen sucessful transfusions with twenty percent alcohol.
        B.J.: Twenty percent? That'd give Dracula a lost weekend.

      • Radar: (as D.J.) Here's a mover and a groover, and it ain't by Herbert Hoover. It's for all you animal AND music lovers out there.  It's "The Cincinnati Dancing Pig!"


         

      • Radar: A big hello out there to all you daddy-o's, mommy-o's, and NCO's, this is Big Daddy O'Reilly...
        Col. Potter: Big Daddy, just play the records.
        Radar: Gotcha covered, Big Cat.
        Col. Potter: What?
        Radar: Uh, that means, 'yes, sir.'
        Col. Potter: Real cool.

      • Hawkeye: Imagine Charles leaving in a huff. He usually goes out in a snit.
        Magaret: As long as he goes.

      • Radar (about a record he is about to play after he changes the record player needle): It'll be coming to you as soon as I put a new fang on the old tone arm cobra.

    • NOTES (2)

      • The spirit of Frank Burns is brought up, although it was by accident. As Charles was pleading with Margaret to let him sleep in her tent he says "Let me be frank".

      • This is the first of 7 episodes written by Ronny Graham, the last being episode 182. Here, he also appears as a drunken blood donor.
