The Korean War M*A*S*H unit veteran operates as Chief Surgeon in a major city hospital with his colleagues.
Wayne Rogers, who played Trapper John in M*A*S*H (1972), turned down the role because he did not want to play a doctor again on television. (He later played a doctor on the television show House Calls (1979), itself a spinoff of a movie, House Calls (1978).)
Doctor "Trapper John" McIntyre:
That's the kind of thing that makes me wish I was 20 years younger.
Doctor. George Alonzo "Gonzo" Gates: Me, too.
Doctor. George Alonzo "Gonzo" Gates: I'd be 7 years old and these things wouldn't bother me.
