Revealing mistake: At the end, in the shot of Klinger singing while he's sewing a dress on his White Rotary sewing machine, as he's guiding the fabric forward it isn't actually under the machine's presser foot, which it needs to be in order to be stitched by the needle.

Adam's Ribs - S3-E11

Continuity mistake: When Hawkeye's in the mess tent holding the food tray the succotash is on the left and potatoes on the right with a space in the middle, so when Igor serves him creamed corn offscreen the corn should be between the potatoes and succotash, but when Hawkeye's having the fit and walks away from Igor, the potatoes (a higher mound) are now in the center space between corn and succotash.
