** The shoot-out starts with just Hawkeye clowning around, and in a testament to character growth Margaret, Major born-with-a-stick-up-the-ass Margaret Houlihan, is the first to grab an invisible shotgun and join in.

* A throwaway joke from "Cowboy" has Father Mulcahy pray in Hebrew for a wounded Jewish soldier. It's played for laughs as Mulcahy obviously isn't Jewish, but there's the implication that he learned enough Hebrew that he could accommodate Jewish soldiers.

'''Winchester:''' [putting his hands on Mulcahy's shoulders] You ''saved'' me, Father. You lowered a bucket into the well of my despair, and you raised me up to the light of day. I thank you for that.

* In "Dear Sis", when Fr. Mulcahy feels that he's useless to the unit. At the end, Hawkeye and the rest of the 4077 let him know just how important he is to them, and sing "Dona Nobis Pacem." Also in the same episode, the look on Major Winchester's face when he opens his Christmas present to see the tobogganing cap he wore as a child--a little piece of home thoughtfully sent for by Radar, at Mulcahy's suggestion. Then Charles gives Mulcahy money for the orphans, telling him to "Buy them whatever they need." Starting to leave, he turns and hands him ''another'' wad of bills, telling him in an emotion-choked voice to "Buy them whatever they ''don't'' need."

** The B plot of "Morale Victory". Charles operates on a soldier who had been a pianist until he was wounded in the right hand. Charles, badly shaken by the soldier's despair at his aborted career, remembers that the composer Maurice Ravel created [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=KJTUUKAdZDU music which could be played with only one hand]], and urges the former pianist not to give up on music, since the real gift was "in your head, and in your heart, and in your soul"; that he still had "the baton, the classroom, the pen. " The scene ends with the music being played, one handed.
--->'''Charles''': I have ''hands'', David, hands that can make a scalpel sing. All my life, I have wanted to play. I can play the ''notes'', but I cannot make the ''music''.

--->'''Charles''': Don't you see? Your hand may be stilled, but your gift cannot be silenced if you refuse to let it be.\\
'''David''': Gift? You keep talking about this damn gift. I ''had'' a gift, and I exchanged it for some mortar fragments, remember?\\
'''Charles''': Wrong. Because the gift does not lie in your hands.
I have ''hands'', hands, David, hands that can make a scalpel sing. All More than anything in my life, I have wanted to play.play, but I do not have the gift. I can play the ''notes'', but I cannot make the ''music''. You've performed Liszt, Rachmaninoff, Chopin. Even if you never do so again, you've already known a joy that I will never know as long as I live. Because the true gift...is in your head...and in your heart and in your soul. Now, you can shut it off forever, or you can find new ways to share your gift with the world, through the baton, the classroom, the pen. As to these works...they're for you. Because you and the piano will always be as one.
