Factual error: In this episode, the regulars receive and respond to letters from a Fourth-Grade class in Hawkeye's home town. Charles receives one from a little girl who says she's sent him a birch leaf. Unfortunately, the leaf he removes from her glassine envelope is a maple leaf. (Note: there was no indication that this was supposed to be her mistake.)
New this month Character mistake: When talking to Klinger, Radar tells him that "Nobody helped me when I took this job." Yet later on, when Potter is among those complaining about Klinger, Mulcahy tells him about "a real Bozo" that had trouble with the simplest of tasks. And that Col. Blake took the guy under his wing, and helped him grow into the job.
New this month Continuity mistake: When Potter is on the phone, he turns to hush Hawkeye and BJ. As he does so, he's holding the receiver with his left hand, and covering the mouthpiece with his right. He then puts his left hand down on the arm of the chair. When the camera cuts in for a close up, his left hand is on the phone again.
New this month Continuity mistake: When the boys are working on the vascular clamp, Charles brings out three hard boiled eggs. After he heckles BJ and Hawkeye for a minute, BJ takes the hammer, and smashes Charles' eggs. The camera cuts to the boys, and back to Charles. There are now two eggs, and almost intact.
New this month Continuity mistake: In Margaret's tent, when Charles is toasting Margaret, his hand alternates positions between the close ups, and the wide shots. In the close ups, he's holding the wine glass by the bowl. In the wide shots, he's holding it by the stem.
New this month Other mistake: When Hawkeye has Lt. Dish draw the winner of the raffle, he turns the bottom of the glass towards the crowd - meaning they would be able to see Lt. Dish pick the raffle ticket that has been taped to the bottom of the glass, just like the audience does.
New this month Continuity mistake: When Potter is chewing out Klinger about the morning reports, the camera is looking at Potter. As he finishes his line with "once in a while", he puts his right arm down. When the camera cuts to look at Klinger from behind Potter, his (Potter's) arm is up and finger pointing at Klinger.
New this month Continuity mistake: When BJ and Hawkeye are arguing while trying to eat, Winchester starts his French Horn. When the camera is behind BJ, he puts down his fork. When the camera cuts to a front shot of BJ, he's holding the fork he just put down. Then the camera cuts to look at Hawkeye, BJ's fork is down again.
