*** In "The Young & Restless", where he portrays to perfection the delusion that he is actually back in Toledo, instead of dropping the charade when wounded are brought in he just pitches in to help the "accident victims".

* LetsGetDangerous: "Mulcahy's War" had Father Mulcahy accompanying Radar top an aid station (in spite of Potter's orders not to--Mulcahy had been ostracized by a wounded patient about never having been in the field of war) where a soldier with a chest wound is unable to breathe because his tongue was swollen. Using radio instructions from Hawkeye, Mulcahy makes an incision in the soldier's throat and inserts an eye dropper tube in it so the soldier can breathe.

** In the episode where Hawkeye and B.J. get the portable bathtub, Charles offers to buy it off of them. When they refuse and even insist they won't let him use it, he threatens to tell the entire camp they have said bathtub. They caved in immediately.

* FreezeFrameEnding: The show began using the flash variation in Season Six, usually to acknowledge the show's ever-changing story editors (or script consultants as they were eventually called), program consultants, and to acknowledge creative consultants Gene Reynolds (co-creator and previous producer) and Alan Alda. Also depending on the nature of the episode, the variation of the music cue would differ: standard episodes included a short variation of the show's main theme, sombre and poignant episodes would exclude music altogether, and particularly dramatic and Downer Episodes would use a slower and more melancholy arrangement. This continued up until the GrandFinale.
