    Trivia, Notes, Quotes and Allusions

    FILTER BY TYPE

    • TRIVIA (4)

      • In the first scene, Radar is feeding a raccoon. Raccoons only live in North and South America, so Radar wouldn't have found a raccoon in Korea.

      • In reply to the above goof: When you're delirious it doesn't matter if a member of your family is alive. You'll talk to whomever about whatever comes to your fevered mind.

      • 'The Wayward Wind' by Gogi Grant (mentioned in the multiple choice letter to Radar) was not released until 1956, long after the war ended.

      • When Radar is in Post-Op, delirious from the rabies shots, he mistakes Henry as his father saying something along the lines of, "Sorry about the car, Dad." Hasn't Radar's father been dead since he was young? The only mention of immediate family is his mother and Uncle Ed.

    • QUOTES (5)

      • (during the Scrabble game)
        Henry: What I need is another drink.
        Trapper: What's the matter with the one you got?
        Henry: Oh. (drinks it down) For one thing, it's gone.

      • Margaret: Either you ship Travis out, or the major and I will simply have to go to go over your head.
        Henry: Well, you've done that so many times, I've got athlete's scalp!

      • (talking about Travis)
        Frank: Keeping that man here defies every medical precept!
        Trapper: So do you, Frank. You're an incredible example of death after life.

      • (after Travis walks into Henry's office)
        Frank: Margaret, I was wrong!
        (Margaret groans and leaves)
        Henry: You're always wrong, Frank. That's what's so right about you!

      • Radar (about the dog): Just a mutt. I give it stuff from the kitchen...although I don't like being cruel to animals.

    • NOTES (2)

      • Along with season 6's episode 4 (War of Nerves), Mad Dogs and Service Menis oneof two MASH guest appearances by future Caddyshack star Michael O'keefe.

      • Shizuko Hoshi, who plays Rosie here, comes back for another appearance as the Mother in Episode 90, "Hawkeye". She doesn't speak English that episode, however.

    • ALLUSIONS (1)

      • Trapper and Corporal Travis talk about Boston Red Sox player Ted Williams and how talented he is and how unfortunate it is that he got drafted.
