* DoesntLikeGuns: Or grenades, or mines, or anti-aircraft artillery, or ammo dumps, or tanks, or the Korean War, or war in general. Basically he has nothing but hate for anything made specifically to kill another man. He is not hesitant to take this up with top brass or anyone supporting said war.

A surgeon from UsefulNotes/{{Boston}}, and the first of Hawkeye's sidekicks in the Swamp. Originally supposed to be equal to Hawkeye, he ended up as more of a sidekick, much to the dismay of the actor. This, combined with issues with Rogers' contract, resulted in Trapper being PutOnABus (back stateside) after the third season. He was ''not'' made an unperson, though--jealousy of him worked into two later B.J. stories. The nickname, as related in the original novel and film, is from an incident in his past, when a woman he was having sex with [[BlackComedyRape claimed he had "trapped" her]].

* YourCheatingHeart: Cheats on his wife with Margaret Houlihan but never planned to actually divorce her. Also carried on an affair with his receptionist before coming to Korea, which it is implied he intends to renew upon his arrival (he is still in contact with her and making references to the hotel they would meet at in letters). An unmade episode reveals that his wife was having an affair with their Congressman, though the canonicity of this is questionable.

** In yet another HypocriticalHumor example, he's also paranoid that his wife is cheating on him back home, to the point of hiring a detective to follow her... and then worrying that she's fooling around with ''him'', prompting him to hire a second detective to shadow the first one. (An
