Hawkeye Get Your Gun - S5-E10

Trivia: When Potter orders Hawkeye to fire his gun, Hawkeye fires only five shots, not seven like he rightfully should firing a Colt M1911 service pistol. It looks like after the fifth shot his gun malfunctioned and wouldn't fire, he even pulls the trigger two more times. Being a good actor, Alda doesn't ruin the take but keeps on acting. Later they forgot to change the dialogue though: Hawkeye says to Potter "You fired as many shots as I did" when in fact Potter fired seven and Hawkeye only five. (00:22:00)
