The episode's title comes from the song "As Time Goes By," made most famous as the song from Casablanca (1942). The song itself predates that film by 11 years, however, and has been used in many movies and televisions shows. 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 »

This belonged to Radar; he left it for me. Let it stand for all the soldiers who came over as boys, and left as men.

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.
