When Winchester is complaining about Hawkeye and BJ singing in the shower, Hawkeye replies with "don't blame me, I didn't write this stuff." In fact, he did "write this stuff": Alan Alda has the sole writing credit on the episode. See more »
The Korean patrol uses M71 Valmet Sporter rifles, a license-made copy of the AK series, with synthetic stock and muzzle brake removed to be a stand in for AK-47s. This is inaccurate because even the Soviet Union and China didn't issue AKs for several years after the end of the Korean War. See more »
Hawkeye and Margaret get "volunteered" to go to another MASH unit to teach valve replacement. Unfortunately, before they arrive the unit is forced to bug out. The two start to drive each other crazy. Margaret has received a letter from Donald that is obviously not to her liking. The two have several close calls and find themselves in a hut with mortar shells falling all around. Margaret finally confesses what is in the letter. Hawkeye shows great sympathy toward her, even though she has not been very kind. Meanwhile, back at the 4077th, everyone is crazy to hear news of them. Things are still up in the air as the episode ends with one rather remarkable event added in.
