* NarrativeProfanityFilter: In-universe, when Blake spots Hawkeye and Frank talking in the mess tent (after Frank's lovemaking with Hot Lips has been broadcast to the whole camp) and asks Radar to tell him what they're saying. This ends up helping Hawkeye, as when Burns snaps, Radar's "translation" makes it look like he attacked Hawkeye for no reason.

* HiMom: While taking Ho-Jon to his military physical, Hawkeye is filmed by a newsreel camerawoman, who invites him to say hello to his mother back home. He tells her his mother's deceased, then asks to say hello to his dad instead. (According to Donald Sutherland, when his parents saw this film for the first time and they got to this scene, his father stood right up in the theater and shouted, "Hi, Donny!" back at the screen.)

* MistakenForServant: Due to Hawkeye using his rank insignia to pin a busted zipper on his bags in the opening scene, Duke assumes that he's the driver to get him to the 4077th. Hawkeye doesn't bother to correct him until they have arrived and are eating and Col. Blake asks about the "stolen jeep". Later, as Radar is moving Hawkeye and Duke into the Swamp, Vollmer stops to question his "billeting these enlisted men in the officers' area", then gives an embarrassed salute when corrected.

** 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]]
