Suppress the Welcome message in SSH?

I want the welcome message on by default, I like it, but if I could have the ability to suppress it when running scripts to keep the console cleaner and easier to backtrack through it’d make life easier.

something like:
ssh -q $HOST

This command suppresses it entirely, not cool:
touch ~/.hushlogin

Any ideas?

Thanks!
