How well do you remember the time Hawkeye had a concussion?

Hawkeye talked about anything and everything to keep himself awake in this experimental episode of M*A*S*H.

M*A*S*H wasn’t afraid to push the boundaries of television from time to time. Whether it be less-frequent use of a laugh track, an episode in black and white or gut-wrenching storylines, fans never knew what angle the series would take on a weekly basis.

One experimental episode was season four’s”Hawkeye.” In it, Alan Alda steals the show. Literally.

He is featured throughout the episode, with hardly any mention of any other main characters. While driving in his Jeep, he crashes and sustains a concussion. Nervous about falling alsleep with this self-diagnosis, he talks to a Korean family that takes him in, though they don’t understand him, nor does he understand them.

It’s a great performance from Alda, one that sees Hawkeye ramble on his own for the entire episode, resulting in funny moments and classic Hawkeye one-liners.
