About Private HabibEdit
Habib is probably a corpsman attached to the 4077th MASH although, as he is only seen with a cold weather jacket on, his rank or branch insignia cannot be seen. Near the beginning of the episode he brings Klinger to Potter saying there has been a terrible accident. He tells Potter that Klinger has been hit by a chopper blade and since he has come to, only speaks in Arabic. Habib may sound like he has been taken in by Klinger's scheme but Potter doesn't buy it--he tells Habib that if Klinger had really been hit by a chopper blade, his head would look like "malted milk". Furthermore, there are tire tracks on his helmet. Habib tells Potter he is really scared to watch Klinger. Potter remains unconvinced. Just then, Klinger makes like he is becoming delirious and starts ranting, collapsing on a bale of hay, so Habib grabs a nearby bucket of water and douses him with it, calming him down. But Potter is unmoved and sends them away.
