Visiting Oliver in the hospital where he's recovering from a broken leg, Stanley wreaks havoc on both his friend (getting Oliver strung up from the ceiling by his cast-encased leg) as well as the doctor, who winds up dangling out the window. After they're ordered out, Stanley tries to drive Oliver home, unaware that he's just accidentally injected himself with a powerful sedative. Written by

[seeing that Stan has brought him a present]
What have you got there?
I brought you some hardboiled eggs and some nuts.
Now, you I can't eat hardboiled eggs and nuts. If you wanted to bring me something, why didn't you bring me candy?
They cost too much.
What does that got to do with it?
You didn't pay me for the last box I brought you.

The original MGM credits were replaced around 1937 for a reissue in which the names of the director and others were removed. The Film Classics reissue, based on the 1937 reissue (and issued on DVD), removed all references to MGM although the opening lion can still be heard on the soundtrack. See more »
Another fine comedy from Stan and Ollie. Stan pays a hospital visit to Oliver, who is up in traction with a broken leg, enjoying the peace and quiet. Of course it isn't long before that peace is destined to vanish.
Stan is so wonderfully inept in this one. Visiting Ollie as he hasn't anything else to do today, not bringing Ollie candy as "It costs too much" and not having been paid for the last batch. He comes up with his legendary gift.
Don't think any other comedian eating a hard boiled could be funny, but in Laurel's effortless hands it's great. The trouser gag is absolutely hilarious.
Only the climax is a let down, spoiled by poor rear projection work and going on too long. We are rescued though by the boys' L-shaped car (at least that's how it ends up!) Stan and Ollie: best there's ever been.
