Are these scenes from the first or last episode of M*A*S*H?

How well do you know the hilarious beginning and iconic end of this beloved series?

At a glance, the first and last episode of M*A*S*H seem like they could not be more different. One has a rule-breaking raffle party and the other a wedding ceremony. What started as a raunchy comedy with some reminders of its violent setting evolved into a meditation on trauma, friendship and the strength humans can pull from even in the darkest of times.

But these two episodes are still part of the same show, after all, and there are many similarities. How well do you know the raucous pilot and bittersweet finale of M*A*S*H? Match these scenes to the right episode!

I missed 9 & 10 outright and if I had taken a bit more time with 15 I would have noticed the home town sign was still intact. 😕

As others have said hair (no grey or perms) had a lot to do with the choices. I also don’t ever remember a beach scene so I decided it must be the last episode that I’ve only seen about 3xs vs like 15+ for the 1st episode.

Good quiz!

I got 14/15.. IMO, I think the early yrs were pretty sexist. I think Margaret's character in the very beginning could have been a lot more than it was.. Instead she is having an affair with married man and imbecile at that.. He should've been slapped around a few times.. Hawkeye and MacKyntire running around like dogs in heat, MacKyntire, he's married too.. WTF..

War time tv & movies in the 60s and 70s seem to frequently use the 2000s joke that war was like Vegas, what happened there stayed there. Not only was McIntyre married with children but so was Henry Blake. Both had affairs. One episode did revolve around Henry’s wife writing him a letter and telling him she would forgive him if something did happen in the war zone. And I remember Henry freaked out wondering if the permission came because his wife had slipped up. I can’t remember if they stopped having Henry play around as much after that. Franks affairs with Margaret was used as blackmail in one episode concerning Frank’s wife. In reality (which wasn’t mentioned) I believe the reason Margaret became so concerned on that one was the military does have a rule about affairs with married individuals and she could have been disciplined or booted out of the service for it. Margaret really should have been smart enough to have never started up with a married man, but part of comedy shows is having very flawed characters as your antagonistic. Nothing really wrong with Hawkeye running around since he was single, but at least they did show several times nurses rejecting Hawkeye due to his childish antics. One of my favorite episodes is the one with Nurse Kellye yelling at Hawkeye for not respecting her as a woman just because she wasn’t tall and skinny, and then Hawkeye finding she had a date when he did finally come calling.

Anyways people fooling around was always a big TV and movie trope in the 60s through 80s. Maybe it goes back farther. Not sure why. Maybe because most writers were men back then and they thought it funny? Idk. I do remember other TV shows that thought nothing of married men dating women. Sergeant Schultz of Hogans Heroes also comes to mind. I think Dan from Night Court chased after married women too. By the mid or late 90s showing married individuals casually having multiple affairs for a laugh did fall out of favor.

They are always making a big deal about how the show's finale was the most watched show of all times (or something like that), but there is one statistic I would love to see but have never been able to find -- what was the rating of the FIRST RERUN of the finale? I suspect it was EXTREMELY LOW, because the finale was SUCH A BIG DISAPPOINTMENT.
Agreed. I didn't like the finale. I thought the writing was terrible, just like the last 3,4,5 seasons. The writers turned Margaret into a whiny bit-- and Hawkeye into Saint Hawkeye ( do no wrong , say no wrong) The last straw was when they put a Superman costume on him in the Halloween episode. Give me a break

My recollection is that the rerun from September of 1983 landed in the top 10 shows for that week. (Maybe #3? Or #10?) And the following week, the first episode of "AfterMASH" was actually the most watched program for the whole week. CBS reran the "M*A*S*H" finale a 3rd time about a year later, and that one actually did have a pretty low ranking -- ranking (as best as I can recall) as around something like in the 50s or 60s among the most watched programs for that week.
