Patient 4077 - S6-E16

Corrected entry: Hawkeye and B.J. buy Margaret a new ring in place of the one mistakenly thrown out by Klinger. The peddler says, "Cheap setting, miracle glue". Cyanoacrylate glues were first discovered during WWII but were not commercially developed, as it was thought their quality of sticking to everything was a nuisance. It was rediscovered during the 50s but was not sold until 1958, five years after the end of the war. The second mistake is on this site: the episode was not called "Patient 4077," but "Patent 4077."

Correction: This is not a mistake - he is using the word 'miracle' as a description, not a name. Americans call Miracle Glue 'Crazy Glue' (in the UK we call it Super Glue). It probably isn't cyanoacrylate he is talking about. The second 'error' isn't even a film/television error in the first place.

Mail Call Three - S6-E20

Corrected entry: BJ gives his home phone number as 555-2657; in the 1950's, phone numbers were generally given in a TWo-letter-five-number format e.g. "PEnnsylvania-6-5000" or "BEechwood-4-5789".

Correction: This is not a mistake. First 'generally' doesn't cut it - they might be the exception. Also, film makers are required by law to use unassigned telephone numbers, and have always used 555 as a prefix as such numbers are never used in real life.

Mistakes

Hawkeye calls a number of people into the mess tent over the PA - the ones he allegedly suspects of being behind the thefts he is suspected of himself. Interestingly enough, Ho Jon, later revealed to be the guilty party, is not on Hawkeye's list - yet he shows up uninvited, just to be ensnared by Hawk's clever ploy. Note also that he had no way of knowing what the purpose of the meeting was, so we cannot ascribe to him the motive of wanting to find out how much Hawkeye knew.
