The Moose - S1-E5

Corrected entry: Season 1 Episode 5 "The Moose". When they're playing poker, Hawkeye is sitting at an angle so that Sgt. Baker cannot see the earpiece that Hawkeye is wearing. However, Hawkeye sometimes turns his head enough for us to see his ear and, since the camera angle is over Baker's shoulder, Baker must have been able to see the earpiece too and realise he was being cheated. (00:13:20)

Correction: Hawkeye is pretending to be listening to a football game with the ear piece.

I've re-watched the episode, and I can't find anything supporting your claim that he's pretending to listen to a football game. There's no explanation in the scene for why he's wearing an ear piece at all.
