Goofs

The camp is tuned in for a live afternoon broadcast of the Army-Navy football game. However, a live broadcast of a game that was played in the afternoon in the United States (as all Army-Navy games of that era were) would be airing in the middle of the night in Korea. See more »

Quotes

Capt. Benjamin Franklin "Hawkeye" Pierce: Are those the right instructions, Henry?
Lt. Col. Henry Blake: I hope so.
Capt. Benjamin Franklin "Hawkeye" Pierce: I hope so, too. Otherwise I'm coming back in the next life as a squirrel and run right up your pants leg.

Terrible
13 September 2010 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

This is one of the worst episodes of MASH! It's a ridiculous premise that's riddled with inaccuracies. This is just another of those stories where Alan Alda gets a lot of screen time to over act. All through this series they seemed determined to make the military look like a collection of bumbling idiots who some how manage to survive long enough to only do great harm to each other and innocent civilians. An anti-war statement is never a bad thing; unless it's done the ham handed way this is done. Having served in a MASH unit in Viet Nam, I can say we weren't as GI as a Cav. unit but we were Army and we knew what we were doing and how to use more then just the tools of medicine. It is possible to criticize a general concept without completely insulting those that took part in the completion of the task. But then that wouldn't serve the Hollywood agenda these days would it. I enjoy some of the episodes of this show. But this is not one of them.There are so many stupid premises it's hard to list them all. But Frank and Hot Lips cringing in a tent and singing auld lang syne rather then simply moving away from war the bomb is to the other end of the compound they have set up is irritating to watch.
