About Rhoden, "The Scrounger"Edit
After a fist fight breaks out over use of a tub which Hawkeye and B.J. purchased through a catalog from Abercrombie & Fitch, Potter demands the tub be closed down and shipped out, in any way possible. Hawkeye and B.J. trade with SSGT Rhoden, who calls himself "The Scrounger".
At first they plan to trade it for some vintage scotch, but after seeing how miserable Radar is after his tonsillectomy, they drive a hard bargain and get ten gallons of ice cream, as well as two cases of scotch, of the deal which they call "Scotch A La Mode"! Potter is thrilled with his two doctors--"Hot damn! That was not only obedient, but damn nice." Later, "The Scrounger" delivers the ice cream, and its wheeled into Post Op for Radar, who is touched at the gesture. A few seconds later, everyone else in camp storms in, demanding some ice cream too. After getting talked into trading for the tub by promising the ice cream, Rhoden says. in his country drawl, "I'm losin' my touch, in the last war, I could have talked you down to a can of spam!", which Hawkeye then asks for in addition to the ice cream as "The Scrounger" drives off the camp!
