“Heroes” of mine 1. – colonel Flag

Is there any of you, who doesn’t know the one of the most famous TV series in the history? :-). I doubt it…

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!”

Potter: “Why?”

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…
