Did You Know?


The book that Charles demands back from Margaret is the one that he gave her in return for her taking Charity Officer duties in M*A*S*H: Give and Take (1983). While the book served as a bribe/payment for a favor rather than a loan, since Charles eventually ended up saddled with the unenviable task once again, it's fair to assume that he considered the favor void, and therefore insisted on the book's return.

During the bug out, Radar can be seen helping to remove a trunk from a building. This is due to the reuse of footage from the episode "Bug Out," but does not fit in the continuity of the show as Radar was sent home to Iowa during season 8. See more »


Col. Potter: Well, boys - it would be hard to call what we've been through fun, but I'm sure glad we went through it together.

This is one of the best!
3 May 2006 | by lilgreendogSee all my reviews

this would be one of the best M*A*S*H shows i have ever seen, every moments keeps you on your toes.

The ending will make u sad when u realize this is the last one ever filmed. One of the best ways for a show to go out! My parents told me bout staying up late when they were kids just to see the ending a very very big hit and worth watching! But one suggestion i do have is to watch other episodes of this show, because there are a lot of inside jokes that many people will not get with out seeing other shows. Not very much more to say about it, unless that it is a must see no matter what!
