(04x16) 088 - The Price of Tomato Juice

Post by Big Daddy O'Reilly »

Something has just now donned on me...

We know that Potter loves tomato juice so much that Radar went through so much trouble to requition some for him every morning, only to find out that Potter's actually allergic to tomato juice.

However, I know there's an episode a season or two later where Potter smothers his breakfast in ketchup...

MULCAHY: Ketchup helps.
POTTER: Thank God for ketchup.
RADAR: He just did.

So how is it that Potter's allergic to tomato juice but not essentially a tomato sauce? Is there an ingredient in tomato juice that's not in ketchup that triggers Potter's allergies or something?

The inconsistencies in Potter's dining habits fall in line with the many anachronisms that existed throughout the series.This has actually happened on many American programs.But of course only the very keener viewers usually take notice.Shows such as MASH have more than enough good quality to overcome these relatively minor shortcomings.
