Added DiffLines:

* Meta example: William Christopher contracted an almost-fatal case of hepatitis during season 5, preventing him from making several appearances. The producers wanted to nix him from the show but Alan Alda convinced them to keep him, especially as he needed the work to help take care of his autistic son. The episode "Hepatitis" was written to incorporate the illness into a plot thread.

* Another from Margaret is when she and Hawkeye are sent to help out at a front-line aid station during an attack. How she reassures one patient is one of the first times she showcases her respect for Hawkeye's skill:

-->'''Margaret''': I know how hard it is for a woman to become a doctor, and the Army is no help. But with your skills, you've got a real chance! [smiles faintly] And as long as you're under my command, I'm not going to let you back out.

** There's a pointed moment while he's trying to save the man that the North Korean shows him a picture of himself and the wounded man, and Hawkeye [[NotSoDifferent shows him a picture he just received of his father and cousin]].


Added DiffLines:

* A side-plot in "The Grim Reaper" has a wounded man from Toledo arrive at the camp. After being told that Klinger's also from Toledo, he gives Klinger a matchbook from a pool hall that the two grew up at, which reduces Klinger to tears. At the end of the episode, he's apparently sent Klinger a care-package of food from Paco's Hungarian Hot Dogs.

* Margaret is furious when she realizes her engagement ring is a ReplacementGoldfish, after she'd lost her ring and the guys "found" it for her. (It says, "Over hill, over dale, our love will '''ever''' (not "never") fail".) She's ready to explode when Max gently tells her that she's being unfair, and they only had the replacement ring made to make her feel better. She later lets Hawkeye know she knows it's a replacement, then tells him she likes the replacement better.

** The one BJ gets from Peg in "Oh, How We Danced" is particularly heartwarming. First, that Hawkeye would go to the trouble of setting BJ up so he could record how the day might go. Then getting it to Peg in time for her to make the movie and send it back. Then the surprise party. The look of absolute joy and pride on his face when he sees Erin in the movie will have you ready to cry as well.

** Which leads to another heartwarming moment in the penultimate episode, when Hawkeye donates the bear to the 4077th time capsule to stand for all those who came to war as boys as went home as men.

** Which leads to another heartwarming moment in the penultimate episode, when Hawkeye donates the bear to the 4077th time capsule to stand for all those who came to war as boys as went home as men. And moments later, BJ donates a lure that belonged to Henry Blake, standing for all the men who never made it home. It may have been several seasons later, but they never forgot Henry.

** Hawkeye and BJ giving Potter a respectful, silent salute. Twice as heartwarming because you can literally count the number of serious salutes that Hawkeye has given ''anyone'' throughout the series on one hand.

Twice as heartwarming because you can literally count the number of serious salutes that Hawkeye has given ''anyone'' throughout the series on one hand. The gesture isn't lost on Potter either as he can barely hold back tears as he returns the salute.

** When an infant is left on the Swamp's doorstep, her crying wakes the Swamprats, who are understandably confused and irritated. Charles is the most irritated of the three by far and storms out to find the source of the crying and have a stop put to it. His demeanor softens immediately when he steps out and finds the baby and he shushes and coos at her as he picks her up.
