Where There's a Will, There's a War - S10-E16

Continuity mistake: As Hawkeye climbs under the table to hide there are three small stacks of white bandage boxes on the table. When the shelling starts, all the boxes in two of the stacks fall off the table, leaving one stack. When the shot changes, there are suddenly two stacks of boxes on the table.

Dear Mildred - S4-E7

Revealing mistake: In the shot where the horse kicks in the door, there's actually two shots - a kick, a quick cut, another kick. If you look closely, you can see how the hoof of one of the horse-leg props breaks off during the first kick. The second kick is performed by one leg only. If you look really closely - and probably use the slow-motion function - you can even make out the hand of the one wielding the leg through the hole made in the first kick.

Dear Mildred - S4-E7

Continuity mistake: In the episode when Radar gives Potter the horse, they keep referring to the horse as "he". In later episodes, the horse is a mare named Sophie.

Deal Me Out - S2-E13

Factual error: In this episode, Henry is seen handing Radar the keys to his jeep. While this probably benefited the understanding of the audience, it is historically incorrect. Jeeps assigned to a combat zone were outfitted with an ignition switch, not an ignition lock, for the simple reason that in an emergency the vehicle had to be useable by anyone.

Dear Ma - S4-E16

Character mistake: Radar says about the gun the enemy sniper brings into the mess tent: "What funny printing on there. All the R's and the P's are backwards." While there is a mirrored R in kyrillic (pronounced "Ya") there is no mirrored P.

The Birthday Girls - S10-E11

Plot hole: In this episode, Margaret is required to give a lecture on the use of Levophed, because it is being introduced. However, in the Episode "Period of Adjustment"(8-6), Hawkeye orders an IV of Levophed for one of his patients.

Images - S6-E9

Other mistake: In the episode where Radar is talking to Corporal Hendrix, Radar says that he was thinking about getting a tattoo himself. But in season 3 episode 7 when Col. Blake was giving Radar his physical he had an anchor on his right arm which he said was his new tattoo.

Bottle Fatigue - S8-E16

Factual error: The Chinese soldier holding the grenade in the operating theatre is speaking Japanese.

Goodbye, Farewell and Amen - S11-E16

Continuity mistake: B.J. is holding a Korean child who is subbing in for his own daughter when Margaret hands B.J. a piece of cake. Just as it looks as if he is about to feed the cake to the girl, the scene cuts to a full facial shot of Hot Lips, then cuts back to B.J. The cake has disappeared. There wasn't enough time to eat it all, and neither the child nor B.J. is eating. B.J. has no icing on his fingers; it has just disappeared.

Payday - S3-E22

Continuity mistake: When Radar talks to Hawkeye at the officer's club, Radar moves his hand from his chin to the bar top, but in the next shot his hand is back up on his chin.

The Army-Navy Game - S1-E20

Other mistake: Hawkeye loosened the nut and locking ring, but after lifting the assembly, it was obvious that these were steps used only to heighten tension. There was no locking device of any kind between the tail and body of the bomb.

Too Many Cooks - S8-E1

Continuity mistake: After BJ and Hawkeye taste Klinger's plateful of Spam Parmesan they all sit down at the table, and when BJ pulls the plate away from Hawkeye it cuts to another angle and the knife has jumped to the other side of the plate, and the fickle cup keeps sidling across the table to be beside the bowl depending on the angle.
