Quote of the Day: M*A*S*H – Goodbye, Farewell, and Amen

[Hawkeye was telling Dr. Sidney Freedman about what he initially thought was a chicken clucking inside the bus]

Dr. Sidney Freedman: Then what happened?

Hawkeye:
Then I went back toward the front of the bus.

Dr. Sidney Freedman: And what happened next?

Hawkeye: There’s something wrong with it. It stopped making noise. It just–just stopped.

[pauses]

Hawkeye: She-she killed it! She killed it!

Dr. Sidney Freedman: She killed the chicken?

Hawkeye: Oh, my God! Oh, my God! I didn’t mean for her to kill it.

Hawkeye: I did not–I–I just wanted it to be quiet. It was–it was a baby! She, she smothered her own baby.

[pauses]

Hawkeye: You son of a bitch, why did you make me remember that?

Dr. Sidney Freedman: You had to get it out in the open. Now we’re halfway home.

Quote of the Day: *M*A*S*H – “Goodbye, Farewell, and Amen”

Hawkeye: Look, I know how tough it is for you to say goodbye, so I’LL say it. Maybe you’re right, maybe we WILL see each other again, but just in case we don’t, I want you to know how much you’ve meant to me. I’ll never be able to shake you; whenever I see a pair of big feet or a cheesy mustache, I’ll think of you.

B.J.: Whenever I smell month-old socks, I’ll think of YOU.

Hawkeye: Or the next time somebody nails my shoe to the floor…

B.J.: …or when somebody gives me a martini that tastes like lighter fluid.

Hawkeye: I’ll miss you.

B.J.: I’ll miss YOU. A lot. I can’t imagine what this place would’ve been like if I hadn’t found you here.

Happy Birthday to Alan Alda who turns 79 (!) today.
