Quotes:
From "M*A*S*H: The Colonel's Horse (#5.11)" (1976)
Maj. Margaret "Hot Lips" Houlihan: I'm afraid I have a bad appendix.
Maj. Frank Burns: Let me operate? Please!
Maj. Margaret "Hot Lips" Houlihan: It isn't necessary. It isn't a hot appendix. It's chronic.
Maj. Frank Burns: Let me remove it. I'll put it in a nice Mason jar with a little alcohol. I'll bring you ice cream with chocolate sauce and perhaps some Oreo cookies.
Maj. Margaret "Hot Lips" Houlihan: No!
Maj. Frank Burns: Show me some consideration. Let me cut you open!
