In this final episode, the staff of the 4077th M*A*S*H unit find their lives no less hectic despite the fact that it appears that the war may soon be over. Until then, the staff must deal with events like Hawkeye has been temporarily institutionalized due to a nervous breakdown, Winchester has finally found people who share his taste in classical music and Father Mulcahy has been permanently deafened in a mortar attack. At last, the ceasefire is declared and the staff must come to grips with the fact that this time in their lives is over.Written by

It was Jamie Farr's idea to ironically have Max Klinger voluntarily choose to remain in Korea in the final episode. See more »
The pilot of the chopper that carries Hawkeye is wearing Nomex flight gloves. These were not used until 1967 during the Vietnam War. In Korea, pilots would have worn black leather gloves. See more »
Broadcaster from Armed Forces Radio:
On the communist side, 1,347,000 people were killed or wounded. The war also killed 400,000 Korean civilians.
This is not a good place to have a career as an innocent bystander.

The end to one of the finest TV shows in its history
The successful Tv series M*A*S*H ended its long history with this two hour finale. It begins with Hawkeye (Alda) in a mental hospital after an incident. Meanwhile the war is drawing to a close and the men and women of the 4077th prepare for peace and the return to normalcy..but not until the war takes its final shots at them. This episode is still one of the most highly rated tv shows ever on a scale of one to ten..9
