Storyline

Oliver's in trouble with his wife after missing a payment on their furniture, having given the money to Stanley, who used it instead to pay Mrs. Hardy for his room and board. While doing the dishes, Stanley convinces Oliver to withdraw the family savings and buy the furniture outright. But they accidentally squander it at an auction, purchasing a grandfather clock which gets smashed on the way home. Mrs. Hardy's reaction sends Oliver to the hospital, where a blood transfusion from Stanley produces confusing results. Written by Paul Penna <tterrace@wco.com>

Rather Episodic
22 July 2003 | by (Isle Of Bute , Scotland) – See all my reviews

I haven`t seen THICKER THAN WATER for many many years untill I caught it on television this afternoon . The one thing to strike me about it was how episodic it all is - Stan and Ollie wash some dishes , pay some money for the rented furniture , buy a clock and go to hospital and that`s the story . When I say story I don`t mean plot because there isn`t really one so it`s not really the duo`s better shorts even if I did laugh out loud a couple of times . That said I will still be watching the other Laurel and Hardy shorts the BBC is showing this week
