In this final episode, the staff of the 4077th M*A*S*H unit find their lives no less hectic despite the fact that it appears that the war may soon be over. Until then, the staff must deal with events like Hawkeye has been temporarily institutionalized due to a nervous breakdown, Winchester has finally found people who share his taste in classical music and Father Mulcahy has been permanently deafened in a mortar attack. At last, the ceasefire is declared and the staff must come to grips with the fact that this time in their lives is over. Written by

In the final episode ("Goodbye, Farewell, Amen"), the song "Hail to the Chief/Sayonara" can be heard in a scene between Hawkeye Pierce and Sidney Freedman at the psychiatric hospital. The song originated from Robert Altman's MASH (1970). See more »
When Hawkeye gets out of the tank, he gets out from the commander's cupola, not the hull, meaning he could not have been driving. See more »
[a "first" explosion occurs at the M*A*S*H unit]
Everybody, hug a sandbag!
[running for cover]
Get out of my way!
[a "second" explosion occurs]
[to Sergeant Maxwell Q. Klinger]
I thought you said you had everything under control.
Sergeant Maxwell Q. Klinger:
I did! Even I was fooled by that tent. I almost delivered mail there.
Well, it didn't fool them, they know that tank's here someplace. They ain't seen it driven out in the daytime, and they ain't heard it driven out at night.
[a "third" explosion occurs]
Okay, that's three....

When M*A*S*H ended in 1983, the cutline in the tv guide read, "130 million Americans laughed and cried as the 4077th went home." I finally saw the final episode about a year ago; laughing and crying is exactly what I did. It's ironic--in many ways, M*A*S*H was a parody of the Army in the Korean War. Its characters, though, were totally thorough and convincing. This, without a doubt, is the very best series finale of all time. Seinfeld doesn't even light a candle to this one.
