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

Footage from the 1976-1977 season premiere episode "Bug Out" is reused in this episode in the scenes in which the 4077th is forced to bug out to another location due to the incendiary bomb fires. Such scenes were not in the original script, but written in after the area where the series' exterior scenes were shot was affected by a Forest Fire during filming. See more »

Goofs

Potter, BJ, Winchester, and Hawkeye are saying their goodbyes to Margaret. When she and Hawkeye begin kissing passionately, the other three become uncomfortable and look away; BJ slowly removes his hand/forearm from Winchester's shoulder (where he had placed it, comrade-style, a few moments earlier). The kiss continues, and BJ again slides his forearm off Winchester's shoulder. See more »

Quotes

Father Mulcahy: Dear Lord, I know there must be a reason for this, but what is it? I answered the call to do your work. I've devoted my life to it, and now, how am I supposed to do it? What good am I now? What good is a deaf priest? I pray to you to help me, and every day I get worse. Are you deaf, too?

The only movie that has ever made me cry.
20 March 2002 | by (Ohio) – See all my reviews

Of all of the well-written, high-impact movies that I've ever watched (hundreds), this one caught me off guard. I watched this one evening, many years ago, after coming home from class. I was so intrigued by the movie that I asked my mom if I could skip dinner... as I continued to watch the movie I could not help but cry.

This is a great way of closure for one of the most intriguing shows on television. I would highly recommend watching this movie when your mind has time to think about what takes place.
