Bombshells - S11-E6

Corrected entry: At the end, after BJ has received his Bronze Star, Colonel Potter dismisses the formation with "At Ease. Dismissed." According to Drill and Ceremonies as I learned them, this is impossible. The only legal command from the at-ease position is "Attention."

Correction: While this is technically correct, I've had NCOs and officers call fallout or dismissed from at ease, parade rest, and rest all the time. This is in line with a unit that has as little military discipline as the 4077TH.

Strange Bedfellows - S11-E11

Corrected entry: When Col. Potter is talking to Father Mulcahy about his son-in-law's rendezvous, Father Mulcahy says he has seen the 6th commandment take a beating, but "Thou shalt not commit adultery" is actually the 7th commandment.

Correction: Yes, according to Protestants (and others) it's the 7th commandment which states not to commit adultery, however, according to the Roman Catholic Church (and Lutheranism) it is indeed the 6th commandment just as Father Mulcahy asserts, and since Father Mulcahy is a devout Catholic military chaplain, his statement, "I've seen the 6th commandment take quite a beating," holds perfectly true for his character.

The Joker is Wild - S11-E4

Corrected entry: To avoid being the last victim of the jokes, Hawkeye sets his bed up in the compound, surrounding it with barbed wire. Trouble is, the wire is wrapped in such a way as it would be impossible to him get over or through without getting cut to shreds.

Movie Nut

Correction: He probably stepped into the circle of his cot then pulled the wire around him.

The Joker is Wild - S11-E4

Corrected entry: When BJ and Hawkeye are at the desk in Post Op, Margaret comes in to blame BJ for the missing fabric in her bathrobe. He claims that it wasn't him, but pulls a piece of fabric out of the desk drawer that he claims to have "coincidentally" noticed there. He never touched the desk drawer, and had come in only a minute before. The only way that he could have known about it was to have placed it there beforehand.

Correction: Exactly. He (or even Margaret) put it there after it was cut.

At the end of that episode, it is disclosed that BJ was the mastermind and the others acted as if "they got, got."

Henry Blake: All I know is what they taught me at command school. There are certain rules about a war, and rule number one is that young men die. And rule number two is that doctors can't change rule number one.
