Quotes

Klinger: Major, look at the big picture. If you're smart, the only physical thing you'll greet Colonel Baldwin with is a handshake. This situation calls for tact, diplomacy, and sucking up.
Charles: Suck up? A Winchester?
Klinger: Remember: to grow a beautiful rose, sometimes you've gotta shovel a lotta manure.
Charles: Why am I listening to this interminable drivel when there is a perfect murder to be planned?

Hawkeye and Winchester Face Their Demons
24 April 2015 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Two things are going on at the base. Hawkeye, who normally can't go five minutes without a joke, bets B.J. he can go a whole day without an expression of wit. Winchester is visited by the man who sent him from Tokyo General to the MASH unit. Now he hopes if he plays his cards right, he will end up back in Tokyo. People expect sparks to fly. Hawkeye is internally hemorrhaging, trying not to tell any jokes. Both men are dealing with things which challenge their natures. Charles's adversary asks him to scrape up some companionship, so he goes to Rosie's and enlists a prostitute. Unfortunately, Margaret shows up at the guy's tent and there is quite a ruckus. Charles is forced to take the moral ground.
