* {{Cuckold}}: In an episode there's a threat of an air raid so the nurses are sent away. It turns out it's just a "propaganda bomb," with leaflets dropped including "UsefulNotes/HarryTruman is sleeping with your wife." In other episodes it's played more dramatically (if hypocritically) as Henry, Trapper and some of the other married personnel worry that their wives are cheating on them, even as they carry on dalliances at the 4077th. An unmade episode reveals Frank's wife was cheating on him with a state senator, but the canonicity is uncertain.

* ClockDiscrepancy: A soldier who they're trying to keep alive through December 25th (so his kids don't have to remember Christmas as "the day Daddy died") dies at about 11:35 pm. Hawkeye moves the hands of the clock so that it's 12:10 am, saying "Hey, look, he made it." They falsfy the death certificate.
** In "Five O'clock Charlie," Hawkeye and Trapper turn the clock back a half hour, just before Charlie is about to make his appearance, and inform Frank about a patient's (staged) infection so Frank can't operate a gun to bring down Charlie.
