    • (Hawkeye is trying to persuade Potter not to swear Klinger back into the army)
      Hawkeye: He was drunk, he didn't know what he was doing!
      Klinger: Sure I did. I was drinking.
      Hawkeye: Look, Vickers caught Klinger with his heart down. It would be criminal of you to swear him in. You just can't do it.
      Potter: Slow down, Pierce. The boy's not drunk now. Why don't we hear his thoughts about this?
      Klinger: Face it, I'm a poor kid off the streets. The only real experience I have is shuffling pool. But now I have a chance to rise through the army's ranks and make something of myself!
      Potter: Pretty sober thoughts, Pierce.
      Hawkeye: Come on, he's crazy! Only an idiot would ever reenlist in the army!
      Potter: (angry) I wonder if you can think of any exceptions to that rule. Take your time, I can wait, I'm going to be here a while yet. That's a hint, by the way.
      Hawkeye: Colonel, I...
      Potter: Pierce, I've had it up to here with you always putting a knock on the army! The military has produced some great men: George Washington, Andy Jackson, Teddy Roosevelt! And if Klinger wants to re-up, I'll be proud to swear him in!
