Stan has attached the drying line to the kitchen door and, when Ollie opens it, he pulls down the chimney pipe from the stove and is hit by a cloud of soot. Stan comes over and takes off Ollie's hat, and, trying to clean it , blows the soot from the top into Ollie's face. But the top of his hat was white and clean in the previous shot. See more »
Why weren't you at the party last night?
I couldn't make it. I was bitten by a dog.
I can't understand you. Spell it.
A dog bit me. B-I-it me. Bit me.
[Rolls up sleeve and puts the telephone to the injured area]
They had to take me to the hospital last night and they said I might have hydrophosphates.

Mrs. Hardy is out of town so Hardy throws a big party. When the wife plans on returning home early Hardy must get Laurel to help him clean the house. Another wonderful short has non-stop laughs from start to finish. There really isn't one skit that sticks out but instead the laughs just build up.
Our Wife (1931)
*** 1/2 (out of 4)
Hardy and his fiancé have to run off to get married so they get Laurel for help, which of course leads to disaster. There are plenty of wonderful jokes and gags here including the small limousine and the best one when Hardy falls into a cake and brings a lot more with him.
Me and My Pal (1933)
*** (out of 4)
Hardy is about to be married but Laurel gives him a jigsaw puzzle for a wedding gift. The two start working on it and forget all about the wedding. This is more amusing than funny, although the final riot does get plenty of laughs.
