M*A*S*H

B.J. Papa San - S7-E15

Corrected entry: As Potter realizes who is in the jeep, he quickly salutes and drops his hand. After the angle changes, the General salutes. By regulations, Potter, as the lower rank, should have held his salute until Gen. Prescott returned the salute.

Movie Nut

Correction: By regulation he should have done that. However, a MASH unit is hardly a parade ground and "hash marks" Potter isn't very gung ho on military protocol in the first place. Also what is true for a first lieutenant thirty years junior years younger isn't necessarily true for a full colonel the same age. Regulations aside, customs differ greatly in this area. In some units insisting on a parade ground salute from a near-equal rank would be considered an insult. Also, a convincing case could be made that potter's "abbreviated" salute was a breach of regulations in the other direction, because salutes usually aren't permitted in the field. Long story short, Potter's salute is perfectly in character with him, and makes perfect sense in the context.

C*A*V*E - S7-E20

Corrected entry: When Hawkeye and Margaret are operating on Lovett, Hawkeye hooks a clamp on to the light to adjust it. In the next shot it disappears and later it reappears.

Correction: The angle of the camera changes, but the clamp is never removed, you can even see it on Hawkeye's scrubs. The change in angle keeps your from being able to see the side of the like he hooked the clamp to.

Peace On Us - S7-E2

Corrected entry: During the "red party", Col. Potter can be seen holding a glass containing tomato juice or a mixture thereof. From the episode "The price of Tomato Juice," we know Potter is allergic to it. Having so recently been reminded of the fact, why would he drink more? (00:42:30)

Correction: Just because it's red doesn't mean it's tomato juice. It could be anything, especially given it's a "red party".
