  • Trivia

    • Goofs:

      When Moe focuses the flashlight on Larry, you can tell that the light is really a spotlight in the background, especially since we can hear the spotlight in the background click when it comes on.

      When Moe and Curly are breaking into the safe, Curly says "Hey" and in the next shot, Curly is rubbing his face as if Moe hit him, but we don't see it.

      When Moe is pretending to play his bread like an accordion, Moe make a mean grin, but when the camera shows a close-up of Moe, he's making a mean frown, then when it goes back to the original shot, he's making a mean grin again.

      When Larry yells to Curly, "Be quiet and go to sleep!" he's really yelling something else.

      When Larry says, "We gotta get that tooth out or we'll never get to sleep", Moe hand is on his chin but it wasn't in the previous shot.

      When the dynamite stick that Curly throws lands in Moe's pants, you can see a string on his pants.

      After Moe double-slaps Curly and Larry for yodeling, Larry accidentally elbows the tea kettle and almost knocks it over.

      When Moe tells Curly to clean the ham, you can see the ham is sort of falling apart, but then after Curly washes it, it is obviously not the same piece of ham.

      At the beginning of Curly's dream, when Curly falls out of the top of the bunk bed, the use stunt doubles for all the Stooges. The Curly double is supposed to fall on Larry and Moe's doubles and pull them to the floor, but you can see the Moe double actually roll out of the bed before the Curly double reaches him.

      When Moe says "Lemme see" and looks in Curly's mouth, you can see Larry behind Moe, climbing out of his bunk bed. Then the camera cuts to a closer shot of Curly and Moe, and Larry is suddenly gone.

      When Moe slaps Larry for his "How is he; pretty heavy?" comment, Larry is standing next to Moe, but he's suddenly standing behind him in the next shot.

      When Moe drags Curly off-camera by a string tied to his bad tooth, Curly is crouching forward and howling in pain, but in the next shot, he's standing up straight and smiling.

      When Moe is about to push the door tied to Curly's tooth shut, the string on Curly's tooth is straight, but in the next shot, it's suddenly bent down in the middle.

      After Curly cries "My sweet little, cute little, adorable little, sweet little bushy-wushy tooth!", Moe almost cracks up and he puts his hand over his mouth to hide his near-laughter.

      After Curly throws the dynamite into Moe's pants, he cover his face in anticipation of it going off, but he looks back too early and it goes off while he's looking straight at it.

      At the beginning of the shot where Moe says to Curly, "You're a coward!", Curly is pointing his left index finger at Moe, but he wasn't in the previous shot.

      As Dr. Yank approaches Moe's mouth to extract the tooth, you can see Moe open his mouth by himself, but he was supposed to be knocked out.

  • Quotes

    • (Curly thinks the broken doorknob in his hand is his tooth.)
      Curly: Look at that tooth! It's a whopper! And look at that root! Say, if I belonged to the Elks, I'd weld this on my watch chain...if I had a watch chain!

    • Curly: Oh, my tooth! Oh, my tooth! It feels like gremlins are gremling in it!

    • Curly: (singing) She was bred in old Kentucky, but she's only a crumb up here.
      She's knock-kneed and double-jointed, with a cauliflower ear. Someday we shall be married,
      and if vegetables get too dear, I'll cut myself a nice big slice of her cauliflower ear. Cause that ain't rationed.

    • (Curly compares the food on his plate to the meals that Moe and Larry have.)
      Curly: Wait a minute! You said you were going to divide everything equal.
      Moe: Oh, ungrateful, eh?
      Curly: Yeah!
      Moe: We get a half a slice of ham and a half an egg apiece, you get a whole bone and a whole eggshell, and you're squawking!
      Curly: I'm sorry, Moe. Gee, you fellas are swell to me.

    • Larry: Say sugar, how'd you like to come over to my house tonight and see my coffee?
      Secretary: Fresh!
      Larry: Oh yeah, ground today!

    • Moe: Boy, if those Japs knew how many planes we turned out today, their yellow jaundice would turn green!
