The boy has only one crutch that he is seen using on both sides. The first time he's seen he's using it under the wrong arm. He should be using it on the side with the bad leg. See more »
This is the house I was telling you about, boys. A treasure was buried there by Captain Kidd's kid.
Just a minute! You have to pay us $200 for the privilege of digging it up!
Two hundred or nothin'.
Oh, we'll take it for nothin'!

Cash And Carry was one of the best Three Stooges short subjects in their careers. It was also one of the few that touched on what was going on in the real world of 1937.
Moe, Larry, and Curly are back from the country looking for work, riding in their old jalopy which still has a crank starter in the front. They've blown their last tire just as they arrive in their residence which is a shack in the city dump. But when they get there they find that Sonny Bupp and his big sister Harley Wood have taken up residence thinking it was abandoned.
They stay and Sonny is lame and wearing a brace and they're trying to raise money for an operation. The boys offer to help, but remember this is the Three Stooges.
They take the money raised and some crooks chisel them out of it by selling them an abandoned house where supposedly 'treasure' was hid. So the boys go digging and you can imagine the possibility of gags with them using picks and shovels.
As for the rest of the film think of the Abbott&Costello classic, Coming Round The Mountain and you know how this comes out.
Except in the end they get a White House audience with a crippled president who needed a few laughs. FDR grants them executive clemency and they need it and offers to pay for Sonny Bupp's operation.
Cash And Carry has a bit more sentimentality than most Three Stooges shorts. But in focusing on the real problems of homelessness and the Great Depression the film is a cut above the usual slapstick comedy the boys normally do.
