The Stooges have an idea to make up a story about the kidnapping of an actress, which then backfires when she really is kidnapped.
Larry 1925-26, 1929-71
Moe 1922-26, 1929-71
Shemp 1922-25, 1929-32, 1947-55
A hose can be seen coming out of the back of Moe's jacket just before he fires his water pistol at Dandy and Tiny.
When Shemp throws sand in Louie's face, Louie just stands there for a second before reacting.
When the elevator doors open, and Larry is standing over Dandy Dawson's unconcious body, a long shadow can be seen moving up and down in the upper left corner. But when Larry exits the elevator, it vanishes.
(Shemp is talking to Moe on the phone as the phone begins to break off of the wall.)
Shemp: Could you hurry it up a little? It's urgent. And besides, somebody wants to use the line!
Larry: Say, when I come back, I'll give ya the password.
Moe: Brilliant, what'll it be?
Larry: Open the door!
(Moe, Larry, and Dolly see Shemp fall from a ledge.)
Moe: Poor Shemp!
Larry: And he had his good suit on too!
Shemp: Keep your chin up...mine is down on my knees.
(Moe dictates a letter for Shemp to type on the typewriter.)
Moe: Flash! Hollywood, June 22nd! Dolly Devore, glamorous star of B.O. Pictures, disappeared today under circumstances that indicate foul play...
(Shemp hits a few keys on his typewriter.)
(Shemp begins typing for a long time.)
Moe: Read that back.
Shemp: Oggle goggle yatee bene fuch ah tinney herongha paravic man heehaw June 22nd.
Louie: Who are you?
(Shemp reaches into an ashtray and grabs a handful of sand.)
Shemp: I'm the sandman!
(Shemp throws sand into Louie's eyes.)
(Larry produces guns for Moe and himself.)
Moe: Where'd you get it?
Larry: At the studio, the same place I got the money. There was a door maked "Property", but it didn't say whose property.
Moe: Well, finders keepers.
(The carriage flies off of Larry's typewriter and hits Moe in the head.)
Larry: What happened to my carriage?
Moe: (bowing) Your carriage waits without,
Larry: (bowing) Oh, thank you, sir.
(Moe hits Larry with the carriage.)
Moe: Here's your carriage and next time hold your horses.
Moe: I tell you what! We'll have the little lady disappear! That's always a great story.
Dolly: Disappear? How corny can one get?
Moe: I'm afraid you have an advantage over us, sir.
J.B. Fletcher: (to Shemp) What a kidder! As if he didn't know who J.B. Fletcher is...I only run this studio!
(Moe and Larry are accidentally knocked into a bathtub.)
Larry: Hey, this ain't Saturday night!
Moe: What have we got to lose?
(The duo start taking a bath with their clothes on.)
(Shemp dangles above the street by hanging onto a phone. The operator comes on the line.)
Shemp: What's the matter, operator? Will I hang on? What do you think I'll do? Let go? Do you think I'm silly?
Operator: I am sorry, we cannot give out that information.
Larry: This is the best termite sprayer we ever used. (He sprays some of it in Moe's face)
Moe: Do I look like a termite? Don't answer that.
(A reporter walks in and introduces himself.)
Brown: I'm Brown, from "The Sun"
Shemp: Aww, that's too bad...are you peeling?
The final Stooges short to use the vaudeville classic "Three Watches" joke. The routine had previously been used in Dutiful but Dumb (1941) and Rhythm and Weep (1946).
The gibberish Shemp types on his typewriter is identical to the dialogue used in the Stooges classic "Maha" routine, most notable for its inclusion in Three Little Pirates (1946).
The scenes of Shemp wandering around in the garment bag are modelled after similar scenes in the Buster Keaton film So You Won't Squawk (1941).
