Hey, I got a solid 100%! Every question right! What does that say about me?

Klinger's Divorce
Audrey Hepburn
Hawkeye's Alma Mater

are the three that threw me...

I Knew Klinger got Married, to a Korean Woman, towards the end of the show and was under the impression he brought her home for 'AfterMash' when/who was the Divorce? (or was one of his Hardship pleas for Discharge a Legitimate Dear John)

Mash Being a 70s show, set in the 50s, that I watched in the 90s, my scale of Time was off

I guess I never learned or retained this bit... I only Knew/Guessed Trapper/Dartmouth because of the Football plot in the Film

He found out by mail. She (Laverne) married his best friend Gus Nagey
Charles had dinner with her but I don't think he said they dated
I think they got Trapper going to Dartmouth from the movie I don't believe that was ever mentioned on the show. Henry went to Illinois, B.J Stanford, Charles -Harvard, Radar- the Triple A High School Diploma Company of Donovan Indiana. I think those are the only ones mentioned

Frank got a purple heart, it was given to a new born baby. Only question missed.

I missed #'s 3 (I clicked on Margaret's name before I saw Klingler's and the word both) and # 6
(I clicked on Hawkeye because I never knew that Col. Potter was part Indian).

the T is for Tecumseh IIRC... (and while that applies to his Civil War namesake as well, I assumed it would have been overkill both in universe and this side of the 4th wall to double down on the 'honor' w/o a secondary reason

Both Radar and Potter liked horses. Both Radar and Charles liked comic books. Klinger only stayed for a little while after war.
djw1120 DavidHanes 56 months ago
Yes, Radar and Potter liked horses, but Charles never liked comic books.
Klingler stayed after the war to help his (new) wife - Soon-Yee look for her parents after they were forced from their village after it was bombed.
dswilkinson djw1120 9 months ago
He did say he loved a good Captain Marvel when he was working with a soldier that stuttered (like his sister Honoria) and thought he was only smart enough to read comic books

#19 - Frank Burns received one Purple Heart for being injured in a war zone.
He was injured by a shell fragment. An egg shell fragment cracking a 3 minute egg.
His Purple Heart was taken, by Hawkeye Pierce, and given to a Korean newborn.
The Korean newborn had received a bullet wound, after his mother had been shot while carrying
him, before giving birth in the camp.
Please, MeTV, fix the erroneous question.
Oh, and don't mess with canon.
Hawkeye gave the other to a young soldier (played by Ronnie Howard). Frank was awarded a purple earring.

I got 19 out of 21. Bonus if you remember who Radar's favorite comic book hero is.
dswilkinson Cynthia 9 months ago
He mentioned several but I don't know if he had a favorite. He mentioned Superman, Popeye and he sent a Captain Marvel annual to his friend Sparky. Trivial Tidbit- Many of the comics they showed him reading weren't published until after the Korean War so a little anachronistic flub by the props people

21 of 21. I am the Ultimate Masher. Greatest show in history. Favorite scene was Klinger dressed as Statue of Liberty as Gen. McArthur rolls by,

djw1120 titansrst317 56 months ago
If you were the "Ultimate Masher" as you say, then you will know that it was Radar dressed as General MacArthur.
He's lucky he wasn't court-marshalled for impersonating a general officer.
EllisClevenger djw1120 54 months ago
If you were the "Ultimate Masher", as you imply, then you would know better.
Yes, Radar dressed as General MacArthur, for the REHEARSAL.
General MacArthur showed up EARLY, and saluted the Statue of Liberty (Max Klinger), as he was driven out of the camp. His, General MacArthur's, feet never touched the ground. Just a quick inspection drive through the camp.
You're lucky you aren't being court martialed for an egregious wrong, and spelling.
dswilkinson djw1120 9 months ago
It was a drill. A different actor portrayed McArthur in the scene at the end

20 of 21. Even though I got the answers they had two horrible questions: Radar is also a fan of horses, and it's his love of them that brings Sophie to Potter. Burns twice RECEIVED the Purple Heart, they were just both stolen from him by Pierce/Trapper/BJ to give to those they felt were more deserving.
