* TranquilFury: Gets a moment of this in "Radar's Report", when he almost murders a wounded North Korean POW (who'd inadvertently caused the death of one of Trapper's patients while trying to escape from the O.R.) by pulling his IV. Only Hawkeye walking in on him and reminding him that "that's not what we're about" prevents him from following through on it.

* MyGodWhatHaveIDone: In the "O.R." episode, after discovering he was trying to remove a kidney from a patient who only had one.[[note]]A case of CriticalResearchFailure on the writers' part, as a man with one kidney would have been medically exempt from military service.
Exempt, yes. However, a man who desperately wanted to volunteer could easily have covered this up during the induction medical exams during that era. See, for example, Ron Howard's character Private Wendell.[[/note]] Frank's surgical incompetence is usually PlayedForLaughs, but in this particular case he seems to be genuinely horrified at what he nearly did... and uncharacteristically grateful to Trapper for pointing it out to him in time.

* TheBigGuy: Mike Farrell is one seriously tall man (then again, so were Wayne Rogers, [=McLean=] Stevenson and David Ogden Stiers). A RunningGag is his shoe size - never revealed, but apparently massive. Most of the time, though, he falls into GentleGiant territory. He's also the only officer to ever be shown voluntarily exercising in any way.

A RunningGag is his shoe size - never revealed, but apparently massive. according to Sidney in "Dear Sigmund," he wears ''size fifteen.'' Most of the time, though, he falls into GentleGiant territory. He's also the only officer besides Mulcahy to ever be shown voluntarily exercising in any way.
