** Judson's rendition of "Suicide is Painless", sung during the mock funeral along with guitar accompaniment is much more in the style of [[TheSixties mid to late 60s]] folk music that sprung out of the Civil Rights/Vietnam Era (think Joan Baez) as opposed to anything during the early [[TheFifties 1950s]] which was still ruled by doo-wop, rockabilly, and early rock and roll.

* {{Expy}}: Apart from a few mentions of them being in Korea, the sets, costumes and props are clearly meant to evoke TheVietnamWar which was ongoing at the time. This was intentional.[[note]] The title "And then there was... KOREA" followed by quotes from Generals Douglas [=MacArthur=] and Dwight Eisenhower over the scene of Hawkeye walking to the jeep at the beginning of the film were added at the insistence of 20th Century Fox.[[/note]]

* PresentDayPast: Korea ca. 1950 looks and feels a helluva lot like [[VietnamWar Vietnam]] ca. 1970. Once again, [[WordOfGod this was entirely intentional on Altman's part]].

** Camp chaplain Father Mulcahy rejoices in the bizarre nickname of "Dago Red".Red", as he is a redheaded Roman Catholic priest (despite the first word being a pejorative term for Italians, Mulcahy himself is of Irish descent).



* EveryoneWentToSchoolTogether: Hawkeye knows Trapper John looks familiar then finally recognizes him as a quarterback he played against in his college football days. Later they happen to bump into Hawkeye's boyhood chum "Me Lay" Marston at the Army hospital in Japan.
** The original book goes even further, when it was revealed that [[spoiler:Jones' family had been sharecroppers on property that Duke's family owned when they were young children; it was a gift from Duke's father that helped them moved out of Georgia and start a family business, which in turn was what made it possible for Jones to get into college at all]].

* PlayingSick: Hawkeye and co. try to get Ho-Jon medically disqualified from serving in the Korean military by giving him drugs that accelerate his heart rate and cause a spike in his blood pressure. Unfortunately, the doctors examining him notice that he has been working at an American hospital and tell Hawkeye that they think Ho-Jon took the wrong medication by accident, so they're keeping him under observation for a few days before examining him again.
** The Korean doctor isn't fooled for a second and subtly accuses Hawkeye of doping up Ho-Jon while giving Hawkeye credit for a "nice try".
