To fight an ongoing infection in the O.R., the staff decides to remove the old wood floor and make a concrete one. The surgeons do the menial labor while Klinger acts as foreman (he knows cement and it's not that hard); while an Italian soldier falls head-over-heels for Margaret. Written by
Hawkey prices the Klinger magic elixir, one part cement, four parts sand, six parts Gravel. Klinger is upset and corrects him. In the six parts gravel and corrects him that he told to use four parts sand and three parts gravel. Although this is also incorrect. The right mixture is one part Cement, two parts sand and three parts gravel. For binding to hard concrete the amount of water is important so the chemical reaction in the cement can start. When BJ puts his hand in the wet concrete you can see that to much water was used!! If there was used the right amount of water BJ could not stick his hand in the concrete because of the heat the chemical reaction produces!. See more »

[after Charles walks right onto their newly poured concrete floor]
That does it, Charles. I'm throwing in the trowel.

The doctors are having a hard time because of a series of infections. It turns out that the wood floor has become an incubator for every manner of bug. The doctors would like a concrete floor put in, but they are rebuffed by the corps of engineers. Klinger gets the idea to do a do it yourself floor. He has had experience with concrete in a civilian job and volunteers to supervise the laying of the floor. Of course, nothing ever runs that smoothly and that's what this episode is about. That and an Italian soldier who develops a total fixation on Margaret because she helped him get over a Dear Giovanni letter. He becomes the ultimate pest and even goes AWOL to see her.
