What a Joy That We Had Them
13 January 2017 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Poor Ollie. Suffering from gout, his doctor recommends he go into the country and drink lots of water. Off he and Stan go, buying a trailer, and camping where there is a well. Perfect? Nope! Unbeknownst to them, it's Prohibition and some moonshiner, to keep from being caught, have dumped their illegal alcohol into the well. Also, who should come along, but a bickering couple, Mae Busch and Charlie Hall. Mae get tired of her crabby husband and goes over to the boy's camp where they share the "water." Of course, they get incredibly drunk. Soon Charlie gets angry and the men start to outdo each other in nastiness. We all know who's going to get the worst of it. These couples are going to reprise this stuff later. This whole episode is hilarious.
