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 »

hypocritical and flaccid
26 May 2012 | by (Jersey City) – See all my reviews

One of two episodes David Ogden Stiers would direct. Joey Pantoliano (RISKY BUSINESS, THE MATRIX) is a soldier who has switched dog tags with a dying comrade who was due to be shipped home. He is counseled by Father Mulcahy. The presence of a priest on the greatest television half-hour of all time has never heretofore been irksome. But as the soldier tells Mulcahy he just doesn't want to kill any more, Mulcahy pushes him to resume his "duty". The offensive hypocrisy of anyone who wears that collar has never felt more noxious. M*A*S*H dropped the ball by never devoting an episode to the obvious conflict of interest inherent in the phrase "soldier priest". Turn the other cheek, indeed. The B plot is pretty flaccid as well, with a wounded soldier trying to get everyone to invest in trust funds.
