Margaret mentions that her marriage to Donald Penobscott lasted around three months.
Charles: I must say, Pierce, I certainly envy you your surgical assignment. I'd love to sink my scalpel once again into a simple appendix. Such a useless yet highly lucrative little organ.
Hawkeye: Before I take out your appendix, there's one question I always like to ask. Have you had your appendix out before?
Hawkeye: How long have you had these pains?
Marina: Just for a few days. Wasn't too bad at first but now it aches like heck.
Hawkeye: You can say "hell" here. We're in Korea. If you can't say "hell" in hell, where in hell can you say it?
Hawkeye: I'd send you a postcard from the Korean theater, but the show is always the same.
TV.com (correctly) counts the first four hour-long broadcasts as two episodes but for some reason this one is counted as just one episode. This makes the episode count incorrect. There are 255 half-hour episodes of M*A*S*H plus the finale.
If you see M*A*S*H reruns in Canada on cable channel PRIME, some episodes (starting with this one) will erroneously have Gary Burghoff's name in the opening credits, even though he left two years earlier.
Radar is no longer seen in the main title credits.
This was the fifth and final 60-minute episode of M*A*S*H. These hour-long segments were divided into 30-minute 2-parters for syndication.
