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

The tank that is erratically driven into camp by the wounded soldier is an M-24 Chaffee light tank, but when Hawkeye drives it back out of camp, it is a Sherman tank. See more »

The end of the best show on TV
28 February 2005 | by (Vancouver) – See all my reviews

I can see why people didn't like the later episodes of MASH when it became very preachy and dramatic as opposed to a comedy series. personally I thought it was great from start to finish. the ending was sad in some ways and very happy in others. You knew these people would not be friends back in the states but here they are like family in Korea. I especially loved how Klinger had to stay in Korea after his years of trying to get out. The finale was, and still is, the most watched sitcom event in the world (in fact, only various FIFA televised events have drawn a higher viewing audience around the world) and I think that says a lot about it. It put the finale of Seinfeld to shame (now THAT was a let down) and no television show has ever come close to the quality of MASH. A great end to a great show.
