If you were a castaway on a desert Island what 6 M.A.S.H characters would you want with you and why?

Talk about all things M*A*S*H -- the novel, the film, the television series, even the play. Not to mention the spin-offs, merchandise, cast, crew and anything else you can think of to talk about.

Radar because he would know if a boat or plan was in the area and we could get a signal fire going. Klinger because he would help me keep in mind that there is no place like home and anything is worth a try to get back home even if it means putting on fuzzy pink slippers and gilding there on a kite. Igor because he could cook (I can't). Rosy because she comes with a bar. Sherman Pottor because he would be a hoot plus he would have survival skills. And finally Frank Burns just in case there were natives on the island and I could have fun teaching them to say - Frank Burns eats worms. Cheers and happy weekend!

Sydney because I'd probably need a therapist being stuck on an desert island and he'd be calm in a crisis, Radar because he is resourceful, Potter because of his survival skills, Klinger because he can sew, BJ because he's a good doctor and doesn't have the ego of Hawkeye and Charles and lastly, purely for shallow reasons Trapper because he's cute.

How about Colonel Flagg insead of Trapper. Trapper isn't my type and if we have BJ we don't need a second doctor. However, the 8th Army would be very concerned if Colonel Flagg got lost. They'd do whatever it took to rescue him, and they'd find all of us along the way.

The 8th army would go out of it's way to find Flagg so he would increase your chances of getting rescued. But until that day you would have no privacy - Flagg would make listening devisees and telescopes out of coconuts so he could spy on you. Cheers!

B.J.. Trapper, Potter, Radar, Margaret, and Klinger. Each character has a specific skill, talent, and ability to survive and cope with tough situations. They are smart, capable, focused, and have a fundamental faith. Potter and Margaret would organize things using their military training/common sense. B.J. and Trapper are excellent doctors with a calm/reasonable approach plus they have great senses of humor. Radar/Klinger for their perceptiveness, hard work ethic, resourcefulness, common sense survival and being smart about life.
