Dear Comrade - S7-E11

Continuity mistake: When Potter is on the phone, he turns to hush Hawkeye and BJ. As he does so, he's holding the receiver with his left hand, and covering the mouthpiece with his right. He then puts his left hand down on the arm of the chair. When the camera cuts in for a close up, his left hand is on the phone again.

Lil - S7-E3

Other mistake: Radar is at his desk stamping in files. As he talks to Hawkeye, he stamps one file, checks another, and when he goes to stamp the next one, he inks the imprint side, turns it over to the label side, stamps it on the file and puts it down.

Patient 4077 - S6-E16

Continuity mistake: When the boys are working on the vascular clamp, Charles brings out three hard boiled eggs. After he heckles BJ and Hawkeye for a minute, BJ takes the hammer, and smashes Charles' eggs. The camera cuts to the boys, and back to Charles. There are now two eggs, and almost intact.

Fallen Idol - S6-E2

Continuity mistake: Look at the stains on Winchester's clothes in the O.R. sessions. Both times the stains match. There would be different stains because of the cleaning process.

The General's Practitioner - S5-E20

The Most Unforgettable Characters - S5-E14

Other mistake: After Klinger douses himself with real gas (Potter determined that Klinger's can only had water in it, and told Radar to switch the can for real gas), and runs into the shower tent, you hear a nurse scream, and see her run out. When the door is open, there are no stalls to be seen. From all scenes shot inside the tent, you know that the stalls are big enough to be easily seen from the outside.

Bug Out (60 mins.) - S5-E1

Continuity mistake: After a distant aerial shot of Potter's chopper, the camera closes in for a close up. When in the distance, the rotors are running full speed. In the close up, they are barely running, just enough to make the familiar whooshing sound. The chopper that they are in is being raised and lowered to simulate flight. Also, if you look in the canopy in front of Potter, you can see the camera and crew's reflection. Then when the chopper is over the building, the sound of the blades is still the slow moving whooshing mentioned earlier, instead of the full power sound it should be.

Some 38th Parallels - S4-E19

Visible crew/equipment: As BJ comes around to take the wounded soldier to Post-Op, he walks in front of the camera. As he does so, the shadow of the camera can be seen on his back.

Show generally

Revealing mistake: A number of times, during the night periods (for instance, during an OR scene) the windows are dark when the lights are on in the room. Then when the lights go out, the windows brighten up. They, and the interior lights seem to alternate lightening and darkening.

Welcome to Korea (60 mins.) - S4-E1

Continuity mistake: On the way to catch Trapper, Hawkeye and Radar are stopped by an MP checkpoint. After bluffing the MP with a story about neuropraxia, the MP pumps his fist in the air saying "Move out!" The camera cuts to a wide shot and the MP is starting to pump his fist in the air again, and says "Move out!" again.

Private Charles Lamb - S3-E14

The Merchant of Korea - S6-E14

Plot hole: In this episode, the military money, or scrip, is being called in and exchanged for a different color (and assumedly design - otherwise counterfeiters could just keep using their printing plates) to battle counterfeiting. However, in previous episodes several colors of scrip are being used equally and at the same time - e.g. in episode "Hey, Doc" (4-5), Sgt. Kimble collects a pot consisting of both blue and tan one-dollar scrip notes. No previous indication was given in the show that the army started a practice of using just one color at a time.

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

Revealing mistake: When Hawkeye injects the adrenalin into the chest of the dying soldier at the battalion aid station, you can see that he is actually injecting into a piece of rubber foam soaked with prop blood.

Bottle Fatigue - S8-E16

Continuity mistake: When Klinger refuses to give Winchester the letter from his sister, Winchester screams at him, Klinger jumps and falls to the ground next to Winchester's bunk. After the cut, Klinger is sitting next to Hawkeye's bunk (note the airplane seat in the background instead of the door) and Winchester is holding the letter in his hand opening it. Rightfully it should be on the floor next to Winchester's bunk. If you look closely, you can see it flying out of Klinger's hand towards the door.

Hey, Doc - S4-E5

Revealing mistake: When Radar carries the field phone from Col. Potter's desk over to Hawkeye who is squatting in the corner, the phone doesn't have a phone line attached. It is an EE-8 Military Field Phone, which is a wired device, not a radio - even if Radar elsewhere says he has somebody "on the radio" when in fact he is using an EE-8.

5 O'Clock Charlie - S2-E2

Continuity mistake: When Margret puts the gun belt around Frank's waist, it is twisted in the back. After the cut, it is righted.

The Gun - S4-E13

Revealing mistake: When Radar walks into the supply room, he carries four or five ammunition belts around his neck. Since he stows them in the gun bin, it has to be assumed that they are not meant to be empty. If they were only half filled each, he would still be carrying something in the area of 60-100lb. However he moves with absolutely no visible strain and tosses the belts into the gun bin with ease. Elsewhere in the series Radar is depicted as being none too strong. Clearly the magazine pouches were stuffed with something light and the effect carrying the real weight would have on Radar was overlooked.

Welcome to Korea (60 mins.) - S4-E1

Continuity mistake: When BJ arrives in Korea, he, Hawkeye and Radar are attacked by guerillas while changing a flat tire on their jeep. After installing the spare tire from the back of the jeep, Hawkeye rolls the flat tire off the to the side of the road and jumps into the jeep as Radar speeds off. Later, when they reach the camp, the spare tire has reappeared on the back of the jeep.
