I was watching "Germ Warfare" this evening and had a question about a line of dialog.

The scene takes places as Hawkeye walks into the mess tent. He sees Radar (with a tray full of food as usual) and says "I see your having the Hunt breakfast". Radar seems to have no clue what he means and Hawkeye says "nevermind". I have tried searching this phrase online but had no success finding it.

Anyone know what it refers to? Is Hawkeye quoting some old movie or is it a cultural reference of some sort?

Thanks.

According to the now-defunct M*A*S*H Episode Guide website, a Hunt breakfast refers to "a sumptuous feast associated with fox hunting, typically eaten after the morning’s hunt."

This is my all time favorite episode... I love the last scene where Frank is scrubbing for OR and Trapper and Hawkeye have to prevent him from operating since they think he might have hepatitis. Best scene ever. For whomever voted this episode as below average, I'd love to know why... no judgement, just curious.

Another good episode. Admittedly, this was probably the worst treatment of Frank so far, with Hawkeye and Trapper taking his blood without permission, but it was also one of the funnier ones in that regard as well. My favorite parts being when they actually take the blood (with Hawkeye and Trapper acting as Dracula and Igor respectively, and Hawkeye affecting Frank's dream), the beer tasting prank and closing the latrine to get Frank's urine sample, and distracting Frank and Margaret from meeting by saying someone wants to talk with them (particularly Henry's reaction).

Another interesting tidbit of trivia is this episode features the last appearance of two Season 1 characters who were written off of the show: Spearchucker and Boone.
