Who said it: Col. Sherman T. Potter or Gen. Bartford Hamilton Steele?

It's safe to say there was plenty of crossover between these two. It'll take a M*A*S*H expert to differentiate these characters!

On Now
MeTV Presents The Best of Col. Sherman T. Potter
Up Next:

Harry Morgan made his debut on M*A*S*H not as the beloved Col. Sherman T. Potter, but as Gen. Bartford Hamilton Steele. 

His one-time appearance as Gen. Steele came in the memorable season three episode "The General Flipped at Dawn," and he played an intense military man to a T. 

Of course, once Morgan joined the show as a regular, Col. Sherman T. Potter, the resemblance and tendencies between this new character and his one-time role as Gen. Steele were immediately noticeable. 

Naturally, each character, played by the same great actor, offered up some iconic lines. Can you tell which character said the lines below?

Was it Harry Morgan as Col. Potter, or Harry Morgan as Gen. Steele?

Watch M*A*S*H on MeTV!

Missed #7. I don't remember Col. Potter talking about WWII - usually it's WWI.

He and Hawkeye and BJ were in the Swamp, talking about Corporal Klinger (and his all-girl orchestra) and getting happily snockered...the next day, Potter complimented Klinger's outfit--it was the from the Shurley Temple collection.
