Bug Out (60 mins.) - S5-E1

Trivia: Early on in this episode a scene takes place in the shower between Harry Morgan and William Christopher. Right before the scene ends William pulls the chain on the lever for the shower to turn on, but the water doesn't come on; in fact when he notices the water doesn't come on, he holds onto the chain and the lever actually comes off. You can tell by his facial expressions this was totally unexpected, but since this was the end of the scene and no further dialog was needed, it was left in.

Trivia: Kario Salem, who played a youngster in season 4's "deluge" also played Private Weston in season 10's "follies of the living-concerns of the dead."

Trivia: While he was known for the role, William Christopher didn't play Father Mulcahy in the series' pilot.

Trivia: The only episode whose name was displayed during the broadcast run (as versus on the DVDs) was the final one, "Goodbye, Farewell and Amen."

Trivia: In one episode, Hawkeye says to Radar, "You're a good man, Charlie Brown", a reference to the off-Broadway show of the same name based on Charles Schultz' Peanuts characters. Because the show didn't debut until 1967, this would appear to be a mistake, but it is not. The reference was intentional, an inside joke: Gary Burghoff played the title role in that play.

Bob Blumenfeld

Trivia: During the whole series, the same short loop of background chatter is used in every OR scene. You can make out the words "Doctor, do you want me to hold that for you?" and "Irrigate this!" over and over again.

Radar's Report - S2-E3

Trivia: After Erika tells Hawkeye that the ring is her grandmother's and she's not married, when Hawkeye joins Erika on her cot the lights flicker on and off a few times. This flickering was real and totally unscripted, and was due to a power failure on the set, but because Alan Alda and Joan Van Ark didn't miss a beat and continued with their lines the scene wasn't reshot, and they just added the PA voiceover announcing that it's the generator again.

Trivia: Alan Alda wore the same pair of boots during the entire run of the series, and he took them home when the series wrapped.
