Continuity mistake: In one of the early surgery scenes you see Trapper operating, although he arrives only later as the new chest cutter. (00:13:20)
The 4077th Mobile Army Surgical Hospital is shaken up by the arrival of Captains "Hawkeye" Pierce (Donald Sutherland) and "Duke" Forrest (Tom Skerritt)...crack surgeons but lousy soldiers. Joined by renowned chest-cutter "Trapper" John McIntyre (Elliott Gould), the surgeons set about dealing with the daily carnage of the war by raising hell. From getting rid of the idiotic Major Burns (Robert Duvall) to helping the camp dentist commit "suicide", there's no lengths the Swampmen won't go to to distract themselves from the horrors of war.
Hawkeye Pierce: It's a good thing you have a nice body, nurse, otherwise they'd get rid of you quick.
