When Charles jumps on the grenade Rizzo tells him that he threw himself on it "faster that Snyders Hounds."

The phrase "faster than Snyders hounds" became an adage in the South and Appalachia meaning great speed. See more »
The medic guarding Soon-Lee is wearing a helmet with the Red Cross painted on the front. The practice of painting the Red Cross on helmets was stopped in early 1951 because North Korean snipers were using them to aim. See more »
Major Charles Winchester:
By the way, you realize you didn't include anything in the time capsule from the infamous Major Burns.
I was thinking about putting in his scalpel, but I didn't want to include any deadly weapons.

We all know about the final episode. It's a classic. This is a precursor to it. Margaret reads about a time capsule that is being put as a cornerstone to a building in Los Angeles. She decides to do the same thing for the MASH 4077. She entreats everyone to come up with something that would show what it was like at the MASH and to show the kind of people who worked there. Of course, this is a chance for the cynical to do everything they can to thwart her efforts. Their point is that the Korean War deserved no celebration, even a hundred years into the future. An act of incredible heroism by a chopper pilot puts a different slant on things. Meanwhile, Klinger may have found the love of his life, a young refugee woman. Things had kind of ground down as this puts an end to the half hour episode. Thank you for a great ride.
