Hill 403 is up for grabs and Army actuary, Colonel Bloodworth, annoys Hawkeye with his cold-blooded "pin-point accuracy" and casualty predictions. Hawkeye and BJ get angry when Winchester will not share more than 1/2 a cracker from his goody basket from home, but the food takes a turn for the worse for both Charles and Margaret, his dinner companion of choice. Klinger meets a kindred Toledo spirit, Pvt. Danker, and they talk about their favorite, Packo's Hungarian hot dogs. Hawkeye is irate and loses his temper with Colonel Bloodworth and faces court-martial. But when Col. Bloodworth returns to 4077 wounded, his perspectives change. Pvt. Danker sends Klinger a box of Packo's hot dogs and all the trimmings. As he, BJ and Hawkeye roast them in The Swamp, Winchester learns the meaning of grace and hospitality.
