Quotes

Wounded Soldier: What if they ask me where I got hit?

Hawkeye: Look them right in the eye and say without blinking, "I got hit in the butt." And if they keep bugging you, drop your pants and show them your scar.

Wounded Soldier: [Snort] Don't make me laugh.

Hawkeye: Whitney, we're talking about your body. It's been invaded by a bullet and there's nothing amusing about that.

Wounded Soldier: Don't I know it.

Hawkeye: On the other hand, you should be proud. You have a very special wound - it's symbolic of this entire war. This whole thing has been one giant pain in the butt. When they wanna hand you your purple heart, you can tell them where to pin it.

Hawkeye: [the 4077th is dangerously low on blood] Now, Frank, how come you've never donated?

Hawkeye: Now why didn't I think of that?

Col. Potter: Because you're not an idiot.
