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

B.J.: [on the phone] Hawk, it's B.J., how you doing?
Hawkeye: [in the psychiatric ward] How the hell do you think I'm doing? I've been locked up for the last week in a wacketeria.
B.J.: Well, listen, Sydney's the doctor.
Hawkeye: [to Dr. Sydney Freedman] You want a laugh? He's says, you're the doctor.
[to B.J.]
Hawkeye: I'm the doctor. I sew people back together. Why is he keeping a brilliant surgeon locked up? I mean, what's behind that?

A great ending to a great series
23 April 2000 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

This finale has more farewells, heartwrenching, sad bittersweet ones, fine moments and character moments in its 2 hours plus than most series I've seen since period. I always get a lump in my throat and a tear in the eye when they do the farewells, esp. Potter to BJ and Hawkeye.

For some reason, they simply do not make series TV like this anymore. Why is that? They oughta. Tv is much more for the worse without shows like MASH.

**** outta **** terrific.
