Did You Know?


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 »


When Hawkeye and Margaret were taking cover in the abandoned hut, Hawkeye claimed he had "Japanese Scotch". There is no such thing. All scotch is by definition a whiskey made in Scotland using traditional Scottish distilling techniques. Anything made in Japan would simply be whiskey. See more »

A Deplorable Situation
31 March 2015 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

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.
