Goodbye, Farewell and Amen - S11-E16

Continuity mistake: Early in the episode a tank is driven into the MASH compound by a wounded soldier (demolishing the latrine in the process). The tank is an M24 Chaffee dating from the mid 1940s - it is squat and angular in shape. Later on in the episode after the tank has been hidden under a tent Hawkeye decides to drive the tank into the camp dump (demolishing the new latrine on the way). The tank has changed into an M4 Sherman - it is a lot higher and more rounded in shape.

Goodbye, Farewell and Amen - S11-E16

Continuity mistake: While everyone's gathered for their last evening together, taking turns telling what their life will be like when they get home, there are three closeups of Kellye in which we see that her caduceus insignia pin is on her right lapel and her First Lieutenant bar is on her left lapel, though it should be the opposite way, and her closeups are not flipped. The pins are on the proper side in other shots of Kellye during the episode.

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. (01:16:50)

The Joker is Wild - S11-E4

Continuity mistake: When filming Hawkeye, BJ and Charles in the swamp before they go to Potter's tent, the camera has a clear, unobstructed view of the inside. When it pulls back you can see the end of the tent, but without the netting normally there.
