* This show made Korea look so backwards. I'm no expert on Korea, but I know South Korea is now one of the Four Asian Tigers. Was it really Amish-Land in the early '50s?

*** The only place shown to be "backwards" (i.e. poor, farming communities) was the immediate area surrounding the 4077th and the Korean countryside. Seoul was never shown, but sounded like a large metropolitan city (because it is) and the place you want to go to when you go on leave if you can't get to Tokyo (which is the Las Vegas of the east).

**** [[Film/SupermanReturns WRONG]]. Medical staff (i.e. doctors, nurses, medics) ARE issued weapons, with the expectation that they may, at some point, need to defend their patient and themselves (see: ''TheThinRedLine'' for an example). There is no regulation that forbids, in any way, shape or form, medical staff from carrying sidearms (which they are ''entitled to'' as officers), rifles, or even grenades.\\

** Maybe that nun they gave the supplies to sent a packet of thank-you notes from the children at the orphanage?

* In "Tuttle", as part of the attempt to hide the truth about Tuttle, Hawkeye is at Mail Call to accept a small package addressed to the imaginary man. Since only he, Trapper, and Radar know the truth, and no one outside the 4077 had heard of Tuttle yet, who sent the package? The mail is delivered from outside camp, and it wasn't Radar handing it out, so it's unlikely they would have been able to smuggle the package into the mail sack.

*** Margaret even becomes briefly smitten with Hawkeye, owing to a combination of terror and desperation, her marriage on the rocks and the two trapped in the thick of the shelling. However, she becomes haughtily offended when he brings up her past. He admits later to Beej that maybe the feelings are genuine, but he'd never act on them; they're too different (or perhaps too much alike)to make it work. Though, judging from that BigDamnKiss they share in the series finale, Margaret forgave him his brusqueness, and the crush was still there.

** Don't know about anyone else, but I enjoy a hot shower during hot and humid days. It gets all the sweat and grime off and makes the air seem slightly cooler and drier.
