M*A*S*H

The General Flipped at Dawn - S3-E1

Corrected entry: Actor Lynnette Mettey was introduced in the episode "Carry On Hawkeye" (series 2) as Lt. Anderson - in the episode "The General Flipped At Dawn" her character's name changed to Nurse Baker.

Correction: Several actors throughout the series play different characters. Example: the actor who plays general Steele plays Colonel Potter in seasons 4-11.

The Consultant - S3-E17

Corrected entry: The only ones who knew Dr. Borelli was in camp was Radar, Hawkeye, Trapper, and Henry. Since they were the only ones who knew him at all, how did Frank and Hotlips find out so quick?

Movie Nut

Correction: Frank and Hotlips were always busy bodies around the camp and spying on the going ons of the camp. And as can be seen in other episodes, the swamp is near Hotlips' tent, so if her and Frank were in there, then it makes sense they would know pretty quick.

Abyssinia, Henry - S3-E24

Corrected entry: The cast was not told that Mclean Stevenson's character Henry was going to be killed off until the last possible second so that the shocked reaction of the cast was used in the show to reflect the reactions of the characters at the death of Henry.

Sonja Marie

Correction: Larry Gelbart has stated numerous times that all of the actors knew exactly what was happening and that there were in fact two takes of this scene, with the second take being the one used. To paraphrase what Mr. Gelbart typed in alt.fan.mash "What we see on the screen is called acting, and Gary and the rest of the cast performed superbly"

Check-Up - S3-E7

Corrected entry: When Hawkeye takes Lt. Hoolihan's blood pressure, he attaches the cuff below her elbow. Blood pressure cuffs must go above the elbow.

Correction: I haven't seen the episode, but a blood pressure cuff does not need to be above the elbow, it just needs to be over an artery, any artery close enough to the surface to get a reading. Often, if the arms are too large, or if there are problems with the upper arm, a cuff may be placed below the elbow, around the wrist, even on legs if there is no other place, though that doesn't happen very often.
