    • TRIVIA (1)

      • In the opening of the "Hot Spell" episode everyone at China Beach is trying to beat the heat. McMurphy steps over a fence and stands in a lawn sprinkler. It is very clear that she is wearing shorts and combat boots, yet as she bends to get closer to the water source she is clearly barefoot.
