M*A*S*H and Coffee

I enjoy films. A lot. I had the good fortune of taking a Brazilian cinema course in graduate school, from which I learned that I could learn a lot while enjoying movies. I assign films to my students, and I have created a modest page of favorite films.

Just recently, I realized that I should create a separate page for films related to coffee and tea. The page includes documentaries and a few film and television favorites. The first of these is M*A*S*H (the series, not the film), because references to bad coffee arise frequently. One of Major Houlihan's most memorable lines, in fact, relates to coffee.

Readers of this blog are invited to post some of their favorite coffee references. Please use the "comments" link to share, and include the season and episode if you have it handy. M*A*S*H is the only television series for which my family has the complete boxed set, so we will enjoy looking up the references. (See the episode guide on TV.com for some assistance.)
