Outside of the first season, do you recall Hawkeye using this phrase?
In "Dear Peggy" BJ suggests that Hawkeye uses it all the time. It doesn't really stick in my mind as common, but maybe I'm just not hearing it.

I don't think I've ever heard the phrase "Best Care Anywhere" actually said aloud by any of the characters either.
Not to mention, "Abyssinia" is treated as Henry's magic word for good-bye, but he's only said it approximately once; more often than not, he said, "Goom-bye!"
Seems to be cases of "Beam Me Up, Scotty!"

Actually in the pilot episode, Hawkeye says the "finest kind". He said it again during "Divided We Stand" toward the end of the episode when he and the others, including General Clayton, are having a drink in the Swamp. As for "Best Care Anywhere" that's the phrase that appears on the sign leading into the camp.

"Finest kind" comes from Hooker's novel, where Hawkeye uses it pretty frequently.

I recall Donald Sutherland using it in the movie. I just don't recall much use outside season one in the series. It just didn't stick or didn't work for the series. I just thought it odd that BJ would try to say that series Hawkeye used it when he didn't.
