M*A*S*H

Kim - S2-E6

Other mistake: When Hawkeye and Trapper are arguing with Henry about not sending the little boy to the orphanage, Henry says, "Look, you think I wanna send this little fella away? I got two kids of my own. I'm a former child myself," but at the end of season 1 Henry's wife delivered a boy, whom Henry was aching to be with, so Henry really has three kids.

Dr. Pierce and Mr. Hyde - S2-E5

Continuity mistake: After Hawkeye and Trapper leave the OR, when they open the door to the Swamp the dartboard is not hanging on the door, but in the interior shot the dartboard's there.

Divided We Stand - S2-E1

Visible crew/equipment: After we hear General Clayton in the voiceover talking about how it sometimes seems like Henry is Radar's clerk, during this scene in Henry's office we can see the shadow of moving film equipment - likely the boom, at the top, left side of the screen.

Divided We Stand - S2-E1

Visible crew/equipment: Right after the opening credits, in the first shot as the words "Directed by Jackie Cooper" appear onscreen, the shadow of the moving boom mic can be seen at the top, left side of the screen.

The Sniper - S2-E10

Continuity mistake: At the picnic, the basket is sitting with the end towards the camera, and bottle of liquor in it. Before the first shot from the sniper, the basket is sideways, and the bottle in front towards the camera on the ground.

Movie Nut

As You Were - S2-E20

Character mistake: When Hawkeye asks Frank what he is doing, Frank replies he is lining up all bottles and jars "according to height and popularity". In fact, the bottles are not lined up according to height at all, also the order of condiments is different on the two tables. The sweet and sour gherkins Frank mentions are not there at all - during the pan shots you can see the line ends with the pepper. (00:01:50)

5 O'Clock Charlie - S2-E2

Continuity mistake: When Hawkeye hits on the nurse after Charlie's first flyover, his beach chair instantly folds itself up. (00:06:40)

Cubs Fan

The Sniper - S2-E10

Revealing mistake: When the sniper begins his attack, a sandlot football game is in progress in the compound. As the quarterback goes back to throw a pass, he waits just long enough for the ball to be "shot" out of his hand.

Crisis - S2-E21

Revealing mistake: There is a lag between the interior lights going out and the exterior stage lights going on.

Movie Nut

Radar's Report - S2-E3

Factual error: Radar claims in his report that Father Mulchahy tried to calm the prisoner by saying "bang zhao", thinking it means "peace and friendship" when it really means "your daughter's pregnancy brings much joy to our village." There is, unsurprisingly, not even a remotely similar word in Chinese that means either of those things.

5 O'Clock Charlie - S2-E2

Factual error: General Clayton is wearing ribbons on his regular fatigues. This is incorrect as the ribbons would only be displayed on the dress uniforms. Only the officer's rank would be on the fatigues.

Movie Nut

Hot Lips and Empty Arms - S2-E14

Continuity mistake: When Margaret comes into Henry's office, interrupting the "training film" Hawkeye's part flips from being on the left to the right and back.

Movie Nut

5 O'Clock Charlie - S2-E2

Continuity mistake: As Hawkeye goes to leave the Swamp, the club he's holding goes from the top of the grip an inch or so above his fist, to the top in his palm.

Movie Nut

Mail Call - S2-E23

Visible crew/equipment: After Hawkeye and Trapper tell Frank that they made up Pioneer Aviation to help him look foolish, when Hawkeye picks up Trapper's duffel bag, as the shot pulls back the chalk T-mark can be seen on the floor where Hawkeye had been standing.

As You Were - S2-E20

Revealing mistake: At the end, in the shot of Klinger singing while he's sewing a dress on his White Rotary sewing machine, as he's guiding the fabric forward it isn't actually under the machine's presser foot, which it needs to be in order to be stitched by the needle.

As You Were - S2-E20

Continuity mistake: When Klinger's in Father Mulcahy's tent he pulls up a chair and when he sits down he places his purse on his lap, but in the closeup the purse strap is now around his left arm.

Dear Dad... Three - S2-E9

Continuity mistake: During Henry's home movies of Molly's birthday party, Lorraine brings out the cake with candles and sets it on the table, but the cake differs between the shots - note the writing.

For the Good of the Outfit - S2-E4

Continuity mistake: Hawkeye mails a letter to his father which is delayed in its delivery, and when Hawkeye finally receives a reply from his father it's dated May 24, 1951, but in the previous episode "Radar's Report" the weekly report that Radar typed up was dated October 17 through October 22, 1951.

The Sniper - S2-E10

Other mistake: When Hawkeye and Trapper make Frank up to look like MacArthur, as they put the pipe in the "sleeping" Frank's mouth, he opens a bit wider, and bites down on the stem, then says his last line of the episode.

Movie Nut

Officers Only - S2-E15

Continuity mistake: As the camera looks at the door of the Officer's club while the General and Hawkeye talk, other tents can be seen behind them. As Hawkeye brings in the enlisted personnel, the area is totally empty.
