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

During filming for the final episode, a brush fire broke out and destroyed much of the ranch set. Since the show was coming to an end, it was decided that rebuilding the set would be unnecessarily expensive, and the fire was written into the story by having the North Koreans set off incendiary devices and start a brush fire.

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 »

Pierce, we miss you here.

I miss me there, too. It's lonely here, especially at night. I do hear the guy in the next room. He cries all night.

Everytime I see this tv-movie I can't help but get emotional. I'm sure Alda, Farrell, Swit, et. al. felt the way their characters felt when it was time to say goodbuy. Working 11 years together!!. It was about the best tv show ever. I still watch the re-runs. I wish there was a way to buy the DVD version. I'd do it no matter what the cost. If Hawkeye and Margaret's goodbuy kiss wasn't the longest in movie history it certainly rates as one of the longest.
