Trivia

There's a parallel between Margaret in her dream and the little girl in Hawkeye's dream. If you compare them side-by-side, both are standing with their bloody hands outstretched, while their torsos are covered in blood. See more »

Goofs

The person who won't send the ambulances is referred to as a "First Lieutenant" by Klinger, Potter, and the General. But when we see him, he is wearing the gold oak leaves of a Major. See more »

Quotes

Capt. B.J. Hunnicutt: There's this little rest...
[they close up their coats against a cold draft as someone opens the mess tent door to enter]
Capt. B.J. Hunnicutt: little restaurant in Sausalito where a seagull sits on the windowsill. You can tell by his expression he doesn't have any idea that people shoot at each other. When I get outta here, I'm going there every day until I get that same expression on my face.
Capt. Benjamin Franklin 'Hawkeye' Pierce: I don't think we'll ever get outta here. They tattooed our brains with this ugliness and we'll never get it off.

Poignant, poetic, and emotionally horrifying
3 February 2019 | by jakebirkelSee all my reviews

This is one of those episodes of MASH that's obviously supposed to tell a different story. We're dispensed with all the humor and wit everyone in the 4077th uses to cope with the horrors of war, and are instead treated with their yearnings and internal horrors. It's heartbreaking in the best ways. We see into their minds and gain a different understanding of the trials they go through. It's simply so much of what we would choose to ignore what we laugh at on this show. If you watch this show at all, this episode is a must see.
