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.

Mistakes

Hawkeye calls a number of people into the mess tent over the PA - the ones he allegedly suspects of being behind the thefts he is suspected of himself. Interestingly enough, Ho Jon, later revealed to be the guilty party, is not on Hawkeye's list - yet he shows up uninvited, just to be ensnared by Hawk's clever ploy. Note also that he had no way of knowing what the purpose of the meeting was, so we cannot ascribe to him the motive of wanting to find out how much Hawkeye knew.
