Card Games: Hawkeye, Radar, Trapper, Henry and Zale play a round of poker after the premarital exams.
Comically Small Bribe: Hawkeye asks Radar to get him a three-day pass for Mr Kwang in exchange for a book about reproduction. It works.
Conscription: This is how Mr Kwang came to be part of the staff at MASH 4077.
Kwang: I was a student at the University of Seoul when the war broke out.
Hawkeye: So much for school.
Kwang: Walking there one day, two soldiers jumped out of a truck and threw me into the back. At that moment, I realised I'd volunteered.
Foil: Despite the two rarely interacting, the episode presents Kwang and McShane as this. Kwang has been missing his beloved wife as he hasn't seen her since the war broke out and has become desperate to get back to her, especially upon knowing that she's about to give birth to their first child. McShane seems to be head-over-heels with Soong Hi, a Korean woman he wants to marry, but it's all a facade as he's done a deal with Pak's marriage racket for $1,000.
Gaslighting: Hawkeye, Trapper and even Radar pull this to make sure Henry doesn't realise they manipulated him into signing a pass for Kwang.
McShane thinks Trapper is trying to pull this on him when the doctor informs him Soong Hi has tuberculosis. Trapper proceeds to show him the medical report saying so.
Screw This, I'm Outta Here!: Dr Pak flees for his life when Hawkeye and Trapper threaten to break his legs for bribing them to go along with his marriage racket.
Shipper on Deck: Radar supports Danny McShane in his wanting to get married so much that he gives Hawkeye and Trapper a What the Hell, Hero? for interfering. Unfortunately, it turns out his support was misguided.
Shout-Out: Trapper mentions The Good Earth. This reminds Radar the unit is getting the 1937 film version for Movie Night next week.
Tempting Fate: Frank claims that he can handle a firearm as well as the best of them. Cue his pistol going off in his hand and shooting out a light.
You Are Better Than You Think You Are: Henry tries to console Frank with this after Hawkeye and Trapper's round of verbal jabs at him in the OR. It doesn't work so well because Frank's ego gets in the way.
Henry: Frank, I don't know why you let them bother you. You know you're a good surgeon.
Wrong Genre Savvy: When Kwang thanks Radar for the three-day pass by naming his son after him, Henry believes Radar has been forging his signature for said pass, never realising that Radar just manipulated him into signing the pass.
