* [[Recap/MashS3E9AlcoholicsUnanimous Alcoholics Unanimous]]:
** Impatient with waiting for Klinger to fix a problem with the film camera on a very wet Movie Night, Trapper turns around to demand the return of the absent sound. Mother Nature responds instead via rainwater leaking in through the tent roof and spilling on his head.
---> '''Trapper''': You ask for sound and you get water.
---> '''Hawkeye''': That's show business.

* From "As You Were", Hawkeye and Trapper sitting in the Swamp wearing gorilla costumes, acting nonchalant. Even better is when Frank reluctantly asks for the pair to operate on his hernia, Hawkeye replies that he needs to consult with his colleague. The two begin hopping around, making gorilla noises, until Hawkeye turns to Frank, drapes his arm over Trapper's shoulder and says that "We'll do it--me and the missus." Bonus points for Trapper moving into the "Thinker" pose.
* This conversation from "Operation Noselift", after Radar has seemingly had his nose broken and needs a visiting plastic surgeon to operate on it (a cover for said surgeon performing a purely cosmetic nosejob on a self-conscious private):

* In the episode "I Hate a Mystery", Henry is turning the Swamp upside down looking for stolen property. Turning up nothing, he comes to the stove and accusingly asks Hawkeye and Trapper what's in the stovepipe, to which Trapper deadpans, "Soot, sir." Not believing him, Henry disassembles the pipe and looks into it--getting a face full of soot. It's a pretty standard slapstick cliche, but what makes it funny is Hawkeye's reaction, laughing so long and hard it's impossible not laugh with him. Radar is also obviously trying not to laugh, and even [=McLean=] Stevenson (who plays Henry) is corpsing a bit himself.

* In "Dear Dad Three", a racist soldier asks Hawkeye to make sure he gets "the right color blood". Incensed, Hawkeye and Trapper use a tincture of iodine to slightly darken the soldier's skin while he's out. When the soldier comes to, he asks Klinger if he seems darker. Klinger, clearly in on it, says, "Are you sure they gave you the right color blood? This has happened before." But the real clincher comes when [[SassyBlackWoman Ginger]] congratulates him on "Passing" for white. Then tells him that she's an officer, so he should "Watch his mouth".
