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>

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

[Maj. Winchester was followed by Chinese musicians, one of whom was pushing a motorcycle]
Maj. Winchester: [to Col. Potter] I believe these gentlemen have surrendered.
Col. Potter: [to one of the POWs' guards] Let's get them inside and process them, Corporal.
[to those Chinese musicians]
Col. Potter: Come on, boys. Not too much solid food right away.
Col. Potter: [to one of the POWs' guards] They probably couldn't hold it down.
B.J.: [pushing that motorcycle] I'll make sure the motorcycle doesn't escape.

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.
