Trivia, Notes, Quotes and Allusions

FILTER BY TYPE

  • TRIVIA (1)

    • When Mulcahy tries to tell Potter about the penicillin, you can see that the close-up of each man were shot at different times. When we see Potter's face, Mulcahy's shadow does not reach Potter's shoulder but when we see Mulcahy over Potter's shoulder, he is casting a definite shadow over his shoulder and beyond.

  • QUOTES (3)

    • Bryant: It's been six months since my last confession. You sure this is just between us? Nobody else is gonna know?
      Mulcahy: Only the One who knows everything.
      Bryant: Colonel Potter?

    • Hawkeye: Jolly good, Major, but not all your traditions work out quite so well.
      Maj. Ross: For instance?
      Hawkeye: For instance, giving your lads tea when they've been hit in the belly. That leads to another tradition. Peritonitis.
      Maj. Ross: You're sure about that?
      Hawkeye: Quite.
      Maj. Ross: Well, that does a make a bit of sense. I'll take it up to higher authorities. But I don't know...if it was anything but tea.

    • Hawkeye: They think a belly wound is the occasion for High Tea.

  • NOTES (3)

    • Neil Thompson makes the first of two M*A*S*H guest appearances, here playing a morphine addicted soldier. His next appearance would be in season 7's episode 21 ("Rally Round The Flagg, Boys") as disgruntled soldier Basgil.

    • Bernard Fox (Major Ross) portrayed Dr. Bombay on Bewitched (ABC, 1964-72) as well as the recurring character Col. Crittendon on Hogan's Heroes (CBS, 1965-1971).

    • The idea of the 4077th treating British soldiers is the third excerpt from Richard Hooker's 1968 M*A*S*H novel to be adapted into a TV episode; the first being Hawkeye sending Ho-John to his college in the Sept. 17, 1972 series pilot (#J301) and the second, Hawkeye getting criticized for playing poker while waiting for a patient to stabilize in Episode #J307, "Chief Surgeon Who?" (10/8/72).
