Goofs

Klinger tells Potter, "you got the carbons in backwards... but that's ok; I could read them in the mirror." Having carbons in backwards would not print the carbon copy in reverse on the second page; it might print the item in reverse on the back of the original, though. See more »

Charles: And you call yourself a chef.
Sgt. Pernelli: No. I call myself a cook. Chefs ain't got tattoos.

Boxing Day Comes But Once a Year
27 April 2015 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

A British tradition in the military is for officers to change places with enlisted personnel. Potter decides that this would be good for morale. Of course, there is conflict. The major transgressor is the inimitable Charles Emerson Winchester who has traded places with the camp cook, a humorless dispenser of grease. He whines and whines about everything. Potter trades places with Klinger who now must make major decisions. Hawkeye and B.J. become orderlies and mop floors and change bedpans It is freezing outside and there is general upset. A patient who was thought to be stable begins to go sour and the doctors must swing into action. Not as good as it could have been with some better writing.
