Hawkeye and BJ refuse to use soap and water until the blowhard stops polluting the air. The whole camp is tired of the battle of "the air" so Margaret kicks it into high gear. She commands 3 waves of forces designed to eliminate all of the problem. After stopping the final suicide attempt, Colonel Potter sentences Major Houlihan and her army to the Officers' Club...and drinks on The Swamp Rats. Written by
After lots of surgery, Winchester decides to play his French horn, much to the dismay of his bunkmates. In protest, they decide to go on a cleanliness strike, not showering for days. This leads to all types of complications in the camp. They manage to alienate just about everyone in the camp. They can't even eat in peace. Meanwhile, a man who has had an accident when his gun discharged, is left with a crushed cheekbone. He can't face coming home disfigured and makes an attempt on his life. Potter finally resorts to some pretty harsh love. Eventually, the shenanigans of the surgeons cause enough distraction to be dangerous. This has one of the best conclusions of any episode.
