After telling Jeannie he always wanted to be a surgeon, Tony finds himself masked and gowned in the operating room. Learning Tony's identity, Roger tells Dr. Bellows he doesn't need the operation. Still masked, Tony tells Dr. Bellows he is Dr. Rasch A Houn. Bellows feels he has met him before. Jeannie, garbed as a nurse, appears and turns the hospital upside down. Dr. Bellows tells Roger, who has to have his appendix taken out. Dr. Rasch A Houn is scheduled to operate on him!
Tony tells Roger he'll get out of performing the operation by pretending he must fly to London on an emergency call. Dr. Bellows tells General Petersen he feels Tony is posing as Dr. Rasch-A Houn.
