They Call the Wind Korea - S7-E7

Continuity mistake: When Klinger is coming over the hill at the end of the episode, the camera shows him in the outdoor setting, and the spot he's on has sparse vegetation. When the camera goes to a close up of him, the trees and shrubs are thicker and closer to him. This alternates a couple of times.

Dear Comrade - S7-E11

Continuity mistake: When Potter is on the phone, he turns to hush Hawkeye and BJ. As he does so, he's holding the receiver with his left hand, and covering the mouthpiece with his right. He then puts his left hand down on the arm of the chair. When the camera cuts in for a close up, his left hand is on the phone again.

An Eye for a Tooth - S7-E13

Continuity mistake: Charles arranges a prank that involves a cake. The cake looks totally different in the respective shots. At least three cakes were involved: The one Klinger gives to Margret looks different from the one she holds in her hands when walking over to Capt. Hill. The one she holds in her hand in the closeup counter shots is yet another pie.

A Night at Rosie's - S7-E23

Death Takes a Holiday - S9-E5

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.

Bug Out (60 mins.) - S5-E1

Trivia: Early on in this episode a scene takes place in the shower between Harry Morgan and William Christopher. Right before the scene ends William pulls the chain on the lever for the shower to turn on, but the water doesn't come on; in fact when he notices the water doesn't come on, he holds onto the chain and the lever actually comes off. You can tell by his facial expressions this was totally unexpected, but since this was the end of the scene and no further dialog was needed, it was left in.

That's Show Biz - S10-E1

Question: Talking with stripper Candy Doyle, Potter remarks that he still remembers how she used to spin her tassels and that he is reminded of this every time he sees a C 42 revving up. On the net I do find references to a C40A, a C47 and others, but no reference to an aircraft of the time called a C 42. What would he have been referring to?

Answer: The C-42 was a military variant of the Douglas DC-2. Very few C-42's were built, so it's questionable that Potter would specifically have seen that particular model, but, given his military background, it's not entirely unreasonable that he might use the military designation even when the aircraft in question is actually a civilian DC-2.
