  • On the run from the law, the Stooges accidently become caterers at at a dinner party at a judge's home.

    9.4
    Although this short is wildly unoriginal, it is suprisingly funny and well written. The opening courtroom sequence is taken from 1940's "A Plumbing We Will Go", Shemp manages to fill in for Curly quite well, but not overshadow Moe and Larry's performances. The Stooges soon get around to what they do best. Nonsensical physical destruction. The doorbell reapir scenes are taken from 1943's "They Stooge to Conga", and although they retain the humor fo the roiginal, much of the graphic gags are taken out. Still traveling at breakneck pace, the Stooges decide if they can act like they can fix doorbells, they can act like they can fix dinners. The turkey stuffing, punchbowl, and exploding cake gags are all taken from that film. Although they are quite humerous here, they do not surpass the original. Low-budget production high in laughs.moreless

Trivia, Notes, Quotes and Allusions

FILTER BY TYPE

  • TRIVIA (6)

    • As the Stooges and the party guests are singing to Mr. Morton at the end of the film, one of Mrs. Henderson's bracelets accidentally falls off of her wrist and onto the floor near the end of the song.

    • When Moe bashes Shemp and Larry over the head with a piece of wood, Larry holds his hand in pain despite having never been hit there.

    • As Shemp is smashing eggs on the turkey, he is about to say a line but only gets the word "Much..." out before the camera cuts to a new scene.

    • When Shemp and Larry see Moe with the icing on his face, Larry lets go of the cake, but the cake stays put. But since the cake is filled with gas and must be restrained or else it would fly away, it should have floated away.

    • A shadow of a crew member's hand can be seen when the chicken flies out of Shemp's coat.

    • Wires can be seen pulling the cake into the air when it first starts to float.

  • QUOTES (11)

    • Larry: Just like an inferior decorator!

    • Mrs. Henderson: This vase is valued at $3,000!
      Three Stooges: Vase!
      Moe: Eh, what, Larry old boy!
      Shemp: Do you have a bloater?
      Larry: No, but I have a sardine!

    • Chef: This kitchen is not big enough for is both! Either you stay or I go!
      Moe: That lets you out, so long!

    • Moe: This looks like a simple job for simple people!

    • Mrs. Henderson: Can you fix it?
      Moe: Can we fix it!
      Larry: Can we fix it!
      Shemp: Can we?

    • (Shemp is acting like a chicken.)
      Judge Henderson: What's the matter with him?
      Moe: Oh, he thinks he's a chicken!
      Judge Henderson: Why don't you put him in an institution?
      Larry: We can't, we need the eggs!

    • (Mr. Morton turns to Judge Henderson after receiving the cake the Stooges baked for him.)
      George Morton: If this is supposed to be a practical joke, I've got one for you!
      I was only joking when I spoke of supporting you!

    • (Moe and Shemp realize that the turkey is ruined.)
      Shemp: I can't understand what happened to that turkey. I only had the dial set at 650 degrees!
      Moe: Listen, if the cake in that oven turns out like this, you're going to be the next one to broil in it...and I'm going to bake you with nitric acid!

    • (The party guests watch as Shemp fills glasses at the punchbowl.)
      Shemp: Don't stand around like a bunch of buzzards! There's enough here for everybody!

    • (The Stooges discover that they are actually in Judge Henderson's home.)
      Moe: What judge?
      Larry: The judge that wants to send us up for life!
      Shemp: Don't worry, where there's life, there's hope!

    • Judge Henderson: These men cannot be held for vagrancy! They have visible means of support!
      Larry: Does he mean our suspenders?

  • NOTES (2)

    • John Hamilton (who plays George Morton) is best remembered for his role as Perry White on the Superman TV program of the 50s. This was his only Stooges film.

    • Much of this film is reworked from three different earler Stooges comedies: An Ache in Every Stake (1941), A Plumbing We Will Go (1940), and They Stooge to Conga (1943).
