Trivia

FILTER BY TYPE

  • Trivia

    • Charles appears to be getting shortchanged on his salary. He receives $50 as a stopgap measure, which he promptly pays to Rizzo (still owing the original $50). When the full payroll arrives, Charles pays Rizzo $150 in interest, and then has to pay him his final $50 to clear the debt completely. This is a grand total of $250 dollars. Margaret, as a major, gets $400 a month. Surely Charles would get at least that much, and probably more, being both a doctor and a member of the male persuasion.

    • This is the second time on the series that Hawkeye has doled out the payroll. The first time was season three's "Payday" (episode 70).

  • Quotes

    • Soldier: I hope you're a good doctor.
      B.J.: Don't worry about a thing. When I was in medical school, I was always first in my class. Of course, I lived right next door.

    • Hawkeye: That does it, when this war is over I'm going home.

    • Colonel Potter: I'm a little rusty on procedures for when the payroll has been eaten by a goat.

  • Notes

    • M*A*S*H received an Emmy nomination for Outstanding Comedy Series at the 1982 Emmy Awards. Alan Alda won the Emmy for Outstanding Lead Actor in a Comedy Series. Also Harry Morgan and David Ogden Stiers received an Emmy nomination for Outstanding Supporting Actor in a Comedy Series and Loretta Swit won the Emmy for Outstanding Supporting Actress in a Comedy Series.

    • The episode's title is a spoof of a non-related Disney movie That Darn Cat.

    • After Season 10 wrapped, the cast and crew felt M*A*S*H had run its course, but CBS decided to continue for one more year.

  • Allusions

    • Van Zandt: I'll be informing I Corps that, in my judgement, Benjamin Franklin Pierce owes the US Army in excess of $22,000, to be garnished from his military and subsequent civilian wages.
      Klinger: Boy, talk about a GI bill.

      The GI Bill (Servicemen's Readjustment Act of 1944) guaranteed returning World War II veterans college or vocational education.
