A dig at Wayne Rogers???

Often I have watched Season 4's "The Kids" and Nurse Meg Cratty gets a drink from the still and says "This is a lot better than it used to be." I always wondered if that was a subliminal message or "shot" about Wayne leaving the show the way he did.

Not sure

Recently, I found an interview with Wayne on line. It didn't have a time, but I'm guessing 2010ish.

Of course, he was asked about leaving the show. Again, I'm relying on memory, but he said it was more about the contract terms and didn't cite creative issues, such as being the obvious #2 to Hawkeye. So it sounded like he had more issues with 20th Century than with those more directly involved with the show.

Given that background, I don't know whether anyone would take a shot at Wayne in that manner.

I saw that as well. Wayne said that it was Hawkeye, but that was only part of it. he said he had major issues with the way that she was going, and how even Margaret, Henry, and Radar got far more attention than he did. He wasn't just a third wheel, he was more like a 5th or 6th wheel and felt that he was being ignored.

The final appearance of Wayne was as the PA voice at Kimpo when Radar and Hawkeye were picking up B.J.

What interview did you see?

I think the one I saw was called "Pop goes the Culture" or something like that. It was in like four or five parts on YouTube. I just don't remember much complaining about his character, but more about his contract. Of course, I may only remembering part of what he said.
If the interview you saw was different, I'd love to see it.
