Hey, Doc - S4-E5

Other mistake: When the Colonel of the 1st Cavalry goes to leave camp, he gets in his Jeep. The Jeep he gets in is marked "4077 MASH" on the bumper instead of 1st Cav.

Continuity mistake: Before The Sniper starts firing, Hawkeye is carrying the two bottles of scotch firmly gripped by the necks. A second later, he's barely holding them by the caps, in preparation to drop them.

Revealing mistake: When Radar carries the field phone from Col. Potter's desk over to Hawkeye who is squatting in the corner, the phone doesn't have a phone line attached. It is an EE-8 Military Field Phone, which is a wired device, not a radio - even if Radar elsewhere says he has somebody "on the radio" when in fact he is using an EE-8. (00:17:35)

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.
