Storyline

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 <Explorerds6789>

Quotes

Col. Sherman Potter: [Dedicating the new cement floor in O.R] Special thanks to Captains Pierce and Hunnicut for going over my head right to Corporal Klinger. Next, to Major Winchester.
Cpl. Maxwell Klinger: [Everybody groans] Why Major Winchester?
Margaret: He didn't do a thing. He didn't even lift a shovel!
Col. Sherman Potter: Pipe down, pipe down. This is an operating room. As I was saying, here's to Major Winchester for showing that a man can be neat, clean, and bathed, and still end up smelling bad.
Cpl. Maxwell Klinger: [Charles groans] Now that's more like it.

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.
