Did You Know?


In Cementing Relationships, they talk about putting in a concrete floor in the OR, yet in "Radar's report" you can clearly see that the floor in the OR is of concrete. (e.g. when trapper gets knocked down, and when the bottle of blood gets knocked over) See more »

Laying Concrete Is Hard!
21 April 2015 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

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.
