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

As Hawkeye Pierce is returning to the MASH 4077, he and his driver pass a series of road signs that say "Hawk was gone, now he's here. Dance til dawn, give a cheer. Burma-Shave" Burma Shave was the second most popular shaving cream in USA at that time, and used this style of one liner road signs to advertise its products from 1926 to the 1950s. Thereafter it faded away. See more »
When Margaret says she's got a nursing job at NATO's headquarters, everyone says she's off to Belgium, but NATO's headquarters was in Paris when the Korean War ended and only moved to Brussels in 1966 when France quit the military structure of NATO. See more »
I'll see you back in the States, I promise. But just in case, I left you a note.
[the helicopter that Hawkeye is seated in takes off, and he looks down at the note that Hunnicutt spelled out with stones: "GOODBYE"]

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.
