Goofs

In this episode, shot in 1981, Klinger is clearly seen using a "MagLite" flashlight. That light wasn't introduced to the market until 1979, and therefore wasn't around when the Korean War took place (from 1950-1953). See more »

I Don't Know if Mulcahy Had the Goods
26 April 2015 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Three soldiers are in the hospital. One is Dirk Blocker (Dan Blocker's Kid perhaps?) who plays a big Teddy Bear type guy who has a tattoo with his girlfriend's name on it. He is fighting depression over a Dear John letter. The girl has married money and wants her picture back. The second is an obnoxious insurance man who is driving everyone crazy with his fast talking sales pitch. A reality would have been to tell the guy to knock it off or there is big trouble ahead, but then he wouldn't be able to sell as much as did. The final, most interesting case is a young man who was in an ambush. He was the sole survivor and managed to fool the North Koreans by pretending to be dead. When they left, he took the dog tags off his friend, a Jewish man, who had orders to come home. He is now living a false life. He is filled with guilt but scared to death. He confesses to Mulcahy who deals in bromides and guilt instead of counseling the guy. There is probably PTSD here and the Father ignores that. Obviously, the guy is going down a slippery slope, but he has only been in the hospital for a couple days. And, of course, there is the sanctity of the confessional. Not the greatest episode.
