4. I checked him out on Wikipedia.

I hadn't know he was gay.

It's sad that he had to hide it for so long. I hope coming out gave him happiness.

I remember when he started on M*A*S*H. I thought he was going to be another bumbling, incompetent surgeon like Frank Burns. I was pleasantly surprised that they wrote him as a brilliant surgeon and a curmudgeon with a heart of gold. It was a good fit.
