*** Conscientous objectors don't get a free pass out of the military. They just get assigned to non-combat roles. Which is exactly what Klinger's job as a corpsman was.

*** This may be fridge funny, but [[ComplexityAddiction did Klinger ever]] [[StatingTheSimpleSolution just request a transfer?]] He was hardly irreplaceable before he became company clerk, and even after that, Charles and Hawkeye managed to do his job reasonably well for short amounts of time.


Added DiffLines:

*** For all we know, Klinger ''did'' claim to be one, which would be why he was assigned to the MASH unit instead of being assigned as a rifleman or some other combat occupation.

** Don't forget the crapton of ice that was being dumped on top of his hand just before to keep the patient in hypothermia to buy them some more time...

** He also received a few of them from a relative who tried the same stunt to get out of WorldWarII. I don't think he succeeded, either.

*** The REAL thing about this is this: on "change of command", second episode of the fourth season, Potter makes Klinger change into uniform. Klinger then develops a psychosomatic rush as a reaction to the uniform. One would think that would actually qualify him for a section 8. Instead, he jst puts a slip under them and Pierce and BJ convince Potter to let him have his dresses.

** Because when you've got your hand inside someone it probably feels longer than it is. Hawkeye is just speaking off the cuff.

* One about "Real Time", which has an accurately-running clock in the lower corner: Why is it that Hawkeye claims he's "had [his] unsterilized hand in this man's body for ten minutes", when the clock shows proof it's only been five?

* Trivial point, but there's an episode where BJ is play-acting the role of what he imagines to be a stereotypical British officer and is taking the mannerisms UpToEleven. Couldn't help noticing he's wearing a beret with a Royal Tank Regiment cap-badge (probably something randomly selected from the costume department.) You wonder InUniverse in what circumstances he got hold of that: maybe a wounded tankie got sent to the MASH and oddments of kit ended up in the camp's lost Property box? A back-story begs to be written...

* In "No Sweat", Charles, charged with doing his family's taxes, puts a polo mallet repair under medical expenses. Considering that he is in this situation because the IRS has decided to carefully scrutinize his family's tax returns, why would he be so laissez-faire about it?
