Continuity mistake: While Trapper and Hawkeye are lying on their cots, one by one everyone joins them in the Swamp, and in Trapper's closeups the "USA sterilized" that's printed on his pillow is upside down, but in the wideshots his pillow's flipped over with the print right-side up.

That's Show Biz - S10-E1

Question: Talking with stripper Candy Doyle, Potter remarks that he still remembers how she used to spin her tassels and that he is reminded of this every time he sees a C 42 revving up. On the net I do find references to a C40A, a C47 and others, but no reference to an aircraft of the time called a C 42. What would he have been referring to?

Answer: The C-42 was a military variant of the Douglas DC-2. Very few C-42's were built, so it's questionable that Potter would specifically have seen that particular model, but, given his military background, it's not entirely unreasonable that he might use the military designation even when the aircraft in question is actually a civilian DC-2.
