Divided We Stand - S2-E1

Audio problem: In Blake's office, he's talking to Hildebrandt about Klinger, and the camera does a close up on Blake. You hear him say "Of course", and his mouth is moving a little, but not forming the words.

The Chosen People - S2-E19

Audio problem: Toward the end, after it's determined that Radar isn't the baby's father, there is a vehicle horn honking. When the camera shot goes outside, the sound of the horn is a few notes higher that when heard inside.

Depressing News - S9-E12

Factual error: When Klinger's walking with Captain Allen and the Stars and Stripes photographer, just before their introductions to "Ben" they pass an empty corrugated box with its flap open, and the recycling symbol can be seen on the flap. Recycling symbols were not in use until about 20 years later.

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.
