Continuity mistake: In the episode 'Chief Surgeon Who' (season one), near the end of the episode we see Radar in Col. Blake's office smoking a cigar with ease, but in the first episode of season six when Col. Potter offers Radar a cigar, he doesn't know how to smoke it and he throws up after he puffs it.
Continuity mistake: While Colonel Potter is painting the portrait of Charles, the portable military field desks behind Potter are all open - note the front doors are flipped down, but in the closeup of Charles holding the painting of himself the doors are folded up. And the books, etc. atop the field desks change as well.Super Grover
Continuity mistake: When Colonel Potter, BJ, Hawkeye, and Charles are in the changing room, Charles wants to be alone so he takes his tan jacket off the first nail on the right and leaves, but in BJ and Hawkeye's closeups the tan jacket is still hanging on that first nail, then it vanishes again.Super Grover
Continuity mistake: When Cpl. Hendrix is examined on the operating table, Klinger and Hawkeye admire his tattoos. Klinger asks "do you really think the real Louise is built like that?" and Hawkeye replies, "If she is, I'm in love". Later, when Radar talks to Hendrix, Radar says, "Her face is still pretty, and her legs are the greatest." Hendrix asks, "What about the rest of her?" and Radar replies, "There isn't any." How could Hawkeye and Klinger admire Louise's build if the tattoo was that shot up? (00:01:10 - 00:07:20)
Continuity mistake: While Charles is reading the letter about his nephew being discharged because of fainting spells, Klinger feigns a fainting spell falling forward onto Hawkeye's cot, and his body lies lopsided with his leg hanging off, but when it cuts to the next shot Klinger's perfectly positioned on the cot. Also, note the mail Klinger tossed earlier onto Hawkeye's cot, near his pillow, is now neatly tucked under the blanket towards the foot of the cot.Super Grover
Continuity mistake: When BJ and Hawkeye are arguing while trying to eat, Winchester starts his French Horn. When the camera is behind BJ, he puts down his fork. When the camera cuts to a front shot of BJ, he's holding the fork he just put down. Then the camera cuts to look at Hawkeye, BJ's fork is down again.Movie Nut
Continuity mistake: When the boys are working on the vascular clamp, Charles brings out three hard boiled eggs. After he heckles BJ and Hawkeye for a minute, BJ takes the hammer, and smashes Charles' eggs. The camera cuts to the boys, and back to Charles. There are now two eggs, and almost intact.Movie Nut
Visible crew/equipment: After Charles confronts Choi Sung Ho about the candy, Ho explains that he sold it on the black market to buy real food, and when Ho reenters the mess tent through the side door, we can see that outside there's a director's chair, which actors also use, with something printed on its back.Super Grover
