Did You Know?


When Father Mulcahy comes in the Swamp to chide Winchester over the charity ledger, there is a visible photograph on the wall which was used in early seasons as a picture of Frank Burns' mother. See more »


Look closely at the door of the Swamp just before Mulcahy enters to return the ledger to Charles - in the gap between the door and the door frame you can see Mulcahy standing outside waiting for his entrance. See more »


Father Mulcahy: Winchester, you are a dirty stinker!
Charles: Put that ba... What?
B.J.: Don't listen to him, Charles. Nobody takes the word of a priest.

Another Heavy Episode
6 May 2015 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

The series got a bit darker as it closed out. In this one a man in the hospital takes delight in the fact that he shot a North Korean (who lies next to him). A sort of connection seems to happen as time goes by and that man becomes human to the young soldier. It's another reminder of what war does to us. The other more obvious plot is Charles forgetting that he is on charity collection duty and Potter laying into him. Through a series of events, the collection book is passed around to various MASH members. Each is promised something in return. Charles has the obvious answer to all of this; sometimes it is more blessed to give for everyone than to receive from anyone.
