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 »
This was another of the very first Laurel and Hardy shorts that I ever saw, along with The Music Box, The Live Ghost, and Twice Two, and I was really laughing my head off at this! Laurel and Hardy are among my favorite comedy teams, along with The Three Stooges and Abbott and Costello! Laurel and Hardy were the best duo of the early days! And I am very sure you will agree!
In this short, Stan is visiting Ollie in the hospital, and causes trouble, and then tries to drive him home after he accidentally takes a powerful sedative!
During the scene where Stan brought Ollie the hard boiled eggs and nuts and Ollie complained that he couldn't eat them, I would have taken them, because I love hard boiled eggs and nuts!
This short is a totally must see for all, not just huge fans, but for fans of Laurel and Hardy period! The reason is because you will really be laughing and laughing you head off! I remember the first time I saw this, I watched it several times over!
