Kim - S2-E6

Continuity mistake: When Hawkeye's saying goodbye to the nurse in the morning, he reads "35591715" from her dog tag and says, "Even your number is pretty," and then he makes another date with her and again reads her dog tag, but now the number's "39591715."

Kim - S2-E6

Other mistake: When Hawkeye and Trapper are arguing with Henry about not sending the little boy to the orphanage, Henry says, "Look, you think I wanna send this little fella away? I got two kids of my own. I'm a former child myself," but at the end of season 1 Henry's wife delivered a boy, whom Henry was aching to be with, so Henry really has three kids.

Divided We Stand - S2-E1

Visible crew/equipment: After we hear General Clayton in the voiceover talking about how it sometimes seems like Henry is Radar's clerk, during this scene in Henry's office we can see the shadow of moving film equipment - likely the boom, at the top, left side of the screen.

I Hate A Mystery - S1-E10

Other mistake: When Henry gives Leslie the gift he says, "I sent to Tokyo for this... A Sato Tanaka double-cammed reel with jeweled escarpment," and we can see on different sides of the box there's green tape hiding its brand name, "Penn," though we can still make out the "Beachmaster 155" name.

Major Fred C. Dobbs - S1-E22

Other mistake: While the dentist is working in Henry's mouth Frank's describing Hawkeye and Trapper's pranks, and right after we see a shot of the dog licking hamburger from Frank's ear, when it cuts to Henry saying, "Frank, just leave my married life out of this. Doc, will you watch it before I swallow your watch!" keep your eyes on Larry Linville as he mouths McLean Stevenson's lines along with him.

Sticky Wicket - S1-E21

Other mistake: When Hawkeye walks into the shower tent while Ugly John's showering he removes his robe, and just as Hawkeye swings open the door to step into the shower stall we can see that he's wearing something, presumably a swimsuit.

Sticky Wicket - S1-E21

Continuity mistake: In the mess tent, after Radar uses the ketchup he puts the cap back on, but while Hawkeye and Trapper tease Radar about his hearty appetite, when it cuts to Radar's closeups the cap is off the ketchup, but then it's back on in the wideshot.

Sticky Wicket - S1-E21

Continuity mistake: After the opening credits it cuts to Hawkeye, Trapper, Radar, and Ugly John playing poker in the Swamp and they're all wearing their uniforms when they run out to the incoming choppers, but what we see next is the same footage from the Pilot that's shown in the opening credits, with Hawkeye and Trapper wearing Hawaiian shirts as they meet the choppers.

Dear Dad, Again - S1-E18

Continuity mistake: During the charity no-talent night, when the curtain opens on the Swinging Surgeons we can see Radar using a set of brushes on the drums, but in Radar's closeups he's using drum sticks, then in the wideshot it's back to the brushes again.

Love Story - S1-E14

Visible crew/equipment: After Radar tells Margaret that she's needed in the post-op ward Frank sneaks toward Margaret's tent, and when it cuts to Margaret walking into post-op, at the start of the shot we can see the two actors' curved chalk foot marks on the floor.

Love Story - S1-E14

Other mistake: After Hawkeye asks, "Radar who?" while he's kissing a nurse, it cuts to Trapper, Radar, and Hawkeye walking past a jeep parked in front of the mess tent, then another jeep shows up with Lieutenant Anderson, but both jeeps have the same stain (looks like rust) on the front bar - the same jeep was used in both shots.

Edwina - S1-E13

Continuity mistake: When Hawkeye and Eddie are dancing in the Swamp, after Hawkeye sits on the hot heater Eddie knocks over the tray of glasses and the mug, but next shot the mug is back up on the table.

Edwina - S1-E13

Revealing mistake: While Hawkeye and Eddie are in the Swamp, when Eddie knocks over the stovepipe we can see that it's actually split into two pieces for the stunt, whereas in the previous shots it's not.

Henry, Please Come Home - S1-E9

Other mistake: While Radar's in post-op waiting for Henry's arrival he's seen reading Marvel Comics "Captain Savage and His Battlefield Raiders," one of the 19 issues in this series which were originally named "Captain Savage and His Leatherneck Raiders," it ran from 1968 until 1970, many years after the Korean War ended.

Chief Surgeon Who? - S1-E4

Visible crew/equipment: When General Barker opens the doors to Henry's office and finds Radar sitting behind the desk, we can see Barker's curved chalk foot marks on the floor beside the desk, where the actor will stand in a moment.

Chief Surgeon Who? - S1-E4

Other mistake: At the end, after General Barker tells Henry that he should give Frank a high colonic and send him on a 10 mile hike, Klinger shows up in front of them supposedly naked, but we can see the top of whatever the actor's really wearing.

To Market, to Market - S1-E2

Other mistake: Frank padlocks the doors to Henry's office so Hawkeye and Trapper have to take apart the back wall to remove the desk, but after Frank wakes Henry to tell him about black marketeers Henry runs off to his office to check on his booze, and at the start of the shot when Henry runs into his office he just pushes open the door with Frank still a few paces behind him, never unlocking the supposedly locked door.
