Well, MASH, although it is quite old piece, is still excellent, even nowadays. It is my favourite background, when I came back from work. And one of my most favourite characters is Colonel Flag – super-ultra-cool agent from CIA (or CIC, or CID… 😀 )
He is an excellent parody of agents from various intelligence units, US’ ultra-patriotism, military “logic” and of “green brains”.
Let me show you some examples of really cool and funny dialoques!
Example no. 1 – episode with “Jesus”:
Margharet: “You are the man, colonel Flag!”.
Flag: “Indeed, I am..”
Flag: “This job needs the right man with shovel, who knows, where to dig…”
Burns: “Hardly we could find a better man…”
Margharet: “Or the bigger shovel…”
Example no. 2 – episode with “clash of the secret agents”:
Flag: “Can I trust you, Pierce?” “Actually, I am not from CIA. I am from CIC. I keep telling this just to confuse the people, who believes, that I am from CID..”
Example no. 3 and the last one – a few replies from various episodes:
Flag: “Tell me that one more time and I am entitled to … [flicks over his diary] .. to bite off your left ear!”
Flag: “Turn the lights off!”
Flag: “I am like a sand-wind. I come and leave without being noticed by nobody”
Potter: “Nobody will turn off the lights!”
Flag: “If you don’t turn them off, I won’t leave!”
Everybody in colonel office: “Turn the off!!!!”
Dark… then clinking of the broken glass…
Hawkeye standing next to window: “The sand-wind has just broken his leg…”
Ain’t it funny???? 😀
Well, see ya!
P.S. These replies were translated from the Czech version, so the original version will be most likely slightly different…
