During Hawkeye's mess-tent rebellion, a patch of blue "sky" from the interior set can be seen in the upper-right-hand corner of the picture, as part of the tent has been pulled aside to accommodate the camera crew. See more »
I've probably seen this episode fifteen times and that "river of liver and an ocean of fish" line is pretty memorable. If you put that aside, the whole thing is a bit ludicrous. If it weren't for a series of really benevolent people, few of whom share in the spoils, it could not happen. The former girlfriend of Trapper who gets the stuff on a plane for them deserves a medal. Why should she go through all this trouble. There are times when Trapper and, especially Hawkeye, are like spoiled children. Granted, they are portrayed as amazingly skilled surgeons, but they frequently lust after things that others routinely do without. Hawkeye is tired of the food and wants ribs. But it has to be "the" ribs. There are probably ribs in Tokyo or other nearby places that he could have dined on. But they need to come from Chicago. Anyway, they do present the usual army snafus that prevent a normal operation. Still, there is a back and forth with this camp where one day they seem to have all they could need and the next, they need so much. The writers are often inconsistent in how they portray the camp setting and the needs.
