    "Well I guess there's nothing else I can do" "No, I guess not." You have to love Stan and Ollie's ability to read off one another and deliver their lines in an amazing fashion. This short is full of those classic destruction gags, wrecking everything from Ollie's clothes to eventually his entire house. Unlike many of their films, this one isn't slow paced or repetitive, it's lots of fun to watch. You have to laugh at Blanche Payson as Ollie's angry wife, and Stan gets some incredible lines regarding his medical condition. A Laurel and Hardy classic that should be in every fan's collection.moreless
