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>

Trivia

This was not the series' last filmed episode, in fact the episode that preceded it, "As Time Goes By", which aired the previous week, was the last filmed episode. See more »

Goofs

During the bug out, Radar can be seen helping to remove a trunk from a building. This is due to the reuse of footage from the episode "Bug Out," but does not fit in the continuity of the show as Radar was sent home to Iowa during season 8. See more »

Very tough to say goodbye.
15 June 2000 | by (Texas) – See all my reviews

When M*A*S*H ended in 1983, the cutline in the tv guide read, "130 million Americans laughed and cried as the 4077th went home." I finally saw the final episode about a year ago; laughing and crying is exactly what I did. It's ironic--in many ways, M*A*S*H was a parody of the Army in the Korean War. Its characters, though, were totally thorough and convincing. This, without a doubt, is the very best series finale of all time. Seinfeld doesn't even light a candle to this one.
