Is it from MASH? Sounds like MASH.  Yeah, I think I'll go with Mash. :-)

Very good...it's from the last third or so of the book, and  it's a quote 
from Duke as he's teaching one of the new surgeons how to handle  the problems 
associated with the then new skill set being developed for acute  trauma surgery.
Something that the original author saw up close and  personal.

Funny...that stuff is well  documented at least as far back as the Korean 
Conflict....it worked well  there as "Meatball Surgery", consisting then of 
'mucosa to mucosa, sub  mucosa more or less to sub mucosa, muscularis to 
muscularis, and serosa to  serosa...and if I'm really in a hurry, I'll just 
ride all the 
layers  together as best I can and go back later to fix it...'

A cold cup of  Starbucks Latte for the first person to recognize the  quote...
