* TheFriendNoOneLikes: Frank is this to the entire 4077th beyond Margaret. Best seen in "Movie Tonight" when everybody in the main cast sings an ad-libbed lyric to "I Don't Want No More Of Army Life" and gets an amused/[[RefugeInAudacity colorful]] reaction from the rest of the camp. After remaining oddly silent, suddenly, ''Frank'' chimes in long after the singing has stopped and everyone's attention is turned away, hastily belting out a lyric that is more of a thinly-veiled threat to Hawkeye and BJ out of nowhere after feeling too bashful to speak up, and the whole room goes as dead as a mortuary, while Frank shrinks back into his seat feeling totally small and put out and making it obvious that he knew this was doomed to happen.

Added DiffLines:

* BookEnds: In his first appearance on the show, he exits the scene by telling the doctors, "Ladies and gentlemen, take my advice. Pull down your pants, and slide on the ice." In the series finale, after deeming Hawkeye mentally fit, and knowing this will probably be the last time he sees everyone in the 4077th, he deliberately invokes this by once again exiting with that line.

* PutOnABus: He receives a hardship discharge so he can go home and help run his family's farm after the death of his Uncle Ed in Season 8. He meets Hunnicut's wife and daughter (offscreen) on his way back home, and later sends the 4077th a letter in Season 10. He also makes an appearance on ''Series/AfterMASH'' and even gets a follow-up special all his very own titled ''[=W*A*L*T*E*R*=]''.
