That's Show Biz - S10-E1

Visible crew/equipment: At the end, after Father Mulcahy says goodbye to Sarah, when it cuts to a wideshot we can see two actors' rubber T-marks on the ground. The first is behind Father Mulcahy's feet, a white T-mark (albeit dirty) where Sarah had been standing, and the second becomes visible when Klinger runs over and bumps into Kellye, he kicks up some dirt which causes the black rubber T-mark to flip up off the ground.

Continuity mistake: When the red head woman is playing the piano, it's a double. In the close up her hair is back and you can see her face. In the wide shots her hair covers her face so as to conceal the switch.

Dear Dad - S1-E12

Question: A number of times it is mentioned that the outfit is unarmed, yet several times, Frank has a rifle, or a pistol, and once Klinger had a grenade, and the guards and Klinger, while on sentry duty, has a rifle. Was this standard, or is this a mistake?

Answer: The Geneva Convention allows even doctors to carry a sidearm to be used in their self defense or the defense of their patients, however it is rare to do so.

Answer: As an old medical unit staffer, my experience is that med units have combat units assigned to defend them. Usually it was marines.

Answer: Even an Army field hospital would have SOME weapons for self-defense if the enemy attacked. What's meant is that it's not a combat outfit, and therefore wouldn't have enough weapons to actually attack anyone. (It's also mentioned a few times that the Officer of the Watch is supposed to carry a pistol at all times, but Hawkeye refuses to do it when he's in charge and Colonels Blake and Potter don't enforce the rule).
