I watched an excellent episode of M*A*S*H yesterday. It's a season five ep, titled "Hepatitis," in which Hawkeye has to go around giving everyone Hepatitis shots in their caboose. The episode's single punchline, repeated in endless variety through the episode, is Hawkeye saying, "drop your pants". How that can be rollickingly funny a dozen different times in a dozen different manners and for a dozen different reasons (only one of them the obvious, risque one) is a mark of excellent humor.
