Corrected entry: Hawkeye and Trapper make Tuttle an alumnus of "Berlin Polytechnic" and translate that (wrongly) as "Berlinishes Polytechnikum". Berlin's polytechnic university was named "Technische Hochschule Berlin" at the relevant time - and at no time offered a medical curriculum. To study medicine in Berlin, Tuttle would have to attend "Freie Universität Berlin" instead.Doc
Corrected entry: The POW has blood type AB-, and the doctors search the records to find Frank has AB-. Type AB is the "universal receiver" and can accept a transfusion from any type blood. Type O on the other hand can only receive from another type O. The story should have been based on Type O blood.EASYCHEEZY
Corrected entry: The announcer says that it will be the 53rd Army-Navy game, but the game has been played every year since 1890. The 53rd game would have been played in 1942, 8 years earlier (we know it must still be 1950 since the leaflets in the propaganda bomb are in MacArthur's name, but he was removed in April of 1951). Additionally, at the end of the episode we find out the result was Navy 42 - Army 36. While Navy won all three games during the Korean conflict, none of those games ended with such a score. The score in the 1950 game was 14-2.
Corrected entry: When Margaret and Frank look over Tuttle's file, Margaret reads aloud the words "Berlinishes Polytechnikum". The correct German wording would be "Berliner Polytechnikum". While this could be ascribed to a mistake of Hawkeye or Trapper, no indication of that being the case is given in the show.
Corrected entry: In Henry's office, during several scenes there is a diploma hanging on the wall behind the stove. It is partially obscured, but if you look carefully you can make out that it says "Henry Clay High School". Beneath that in smaller print, you can make out "Lexington, Kentucky". (I live in Lexington and this is a real high school. That's why it caught my eye.) Henry claims to have been born and raised in Bloomington, Illinois, so this diploma makes no sense.jbdelatta
Corrected entry: Season 1 Episode 5 "The Moose". When they're playing poker, Hawkeye is sitting at an angle so that Sgt. Baker cannot see the earpiece that Hawkeye is wearing. However, Hawkeye sometimes turns his head enough for us to see his ear and, since the camera angle is over Baker's shoulder, Baker must have been able to see the earpiece too and realise he was being cheated.
