Stan Laurel: I was wondering who it was.
Oliver Hardy: Why don’t you do something to help me?
Stan Laurel: Like what?
Oliver Hardy: Set the table — you don’t need any brains for that.
Oliver Hardy: Go in and light the oven. And pick your feet up. Take your hat off. [Stan complies] Good. Now light the stove. [Stan puts the hat back on, goes into the kitchen]

Oliver Hardy: Are you sure I can’t help you, Mrs. Kennedy?
Mrs. Hardy (Mae Busch): Puddin’.
Oliver Hardy: What do you mean, “Puddin”?
Oliver Hardy: You’ve broken the camel’s back once too often.
Oliver Hardy: And I’m burning my bridges behind me.
Stan Laurel: Burning your what?
Oliver Hardy: Burning my bridges behind me.
Stan Laurel: Oh, I thought you said “britches.”
Mrs. Hardy (Mae Busch): What do you mean by taking this poor little innocent [Oliver] to South America, and getting him to burn his bridges, when he never even started a fire in his life?
Mrs. Kennedy (Thelma Todd): I’m a cluck, am I? You get a load of my technique! [throws vase at her husband]
Stan Laurel: Good night, Mr. Hardy. [noisily falls down stairs]
