      • Ollie: You can take your Lordship, your Oxford, and your Paddington, and do what you like with them!

      • Johnson: Pardon me, but haven't you come to the wrong college?
        Ollie: Well this is Oxford, isn't it?
        Johnson: Yes, but you're dressed for Eton.
        Stan: Well, that's swell! We haven't eaten since breakfast!

      • (Ollie has become Stan's butler)
        Stan: Fatty, lift up your chin. No no no, both of them!

    • NOTES (4)

      • This film was released to some American theaters as a 42-minute movie and released in others as a 63-minute film. The shorter copy is missing the opening scenes at the dinner party. The longer copy was the only one released in Europe, and is availible on home video.

      • Vivien Oakland's final of six appearances with Laurel and Hardy.

      • The last of eleven Laurel and Hardy films for supporting actress Anita Garvin. She had been a leading lady for the duo since the late 20s.

      • This film was originally titled Chumps at Oxford. In the 1939 film Of Mice and Men, an ad can be seen for this movie using the original title.

    • ALLUSIONS (1)

      • The dinner party scenes are reworked scene-for-scene from Laurel & Hardy's 1928 film From Soup To Nuts. Anita Garvin plays the same part in both films.
