Storyline

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 Kenneth Chisholm <kchishol@execulink.com>

Trivia

In 1983 a spin-off to M*A*S*H called After MASH (1983) was aired. It was a sequel focusing on the M*A*S*H characters of Klinger, Colonel Potter and Father Mulcahy who, following the Korean War, end up working together in a VA hospital in the US. In its first season, it did well enough to be renewed for a second year but it was then put up against The A-Team (1983) on a rival channel, lost heavily in the ratings and was cancelled. Some commentators have suggested that this was indicative of the mood change in America at the time, M*A*S*H doing hugely well during the presidency of Jimmy Carter when the country was ridden with liberal angst and self-doubt but losing out to the macho jingoism of 'The A-Team' once Ronald Reagan took power.

Goofs

The pilot of the chopper that carries Hawkeye is wearing Nomex flight gloves. These were not used until 1967 during the Vietnam War. In Korea, pilots would have worn black leather gloves. See more »

Quotes

[the war is over, and the company is saying their goodbyes]
Col. Potter: Well, Francis, you've been a godsend.
Father Mulcahy: Look on the bright side: When they tell us to serve our time in Purgatory, we can say, "No thanks, I've done mine."

one of the best tv movies ever made
23 September 2001 | by (usa) – See all my reviews

I watched M*A*S*H growing up as a kid. When it all started. When I watched the series finale in 1983 I was all choked up. I felt as if I lost my family. Every cast member from Mclean Stevenson Col. Blake to PVT Igor. As it has been said all great and wonderful things such as M*A*S*H must come to an end. I have just got done watching Goodbye, Farewell and Amen again on the FX channel. No matter what every time I watch it I get a big lump in my throat from beginning to end where Hawkeye reads his message from B.J.. To this day I still watch M*A*S*H the 30 minute episodes. There was no better way to end the series as the producers and creators have done. Once again to all the M*A*S*H fans out there and the crew and cast Goodbye, Farewell and Amen.
