The names of the Stooges' fiancées change. When the Stooges first arrive at the ladies' house and address the ladies' names, June Gittelson is Corabell, Marcia Healy is Florabell, and Betty Mack is Dorabell. Then a little later in the short when each Stooge draws one of the women's names from the hat, June is suddenly Florabell, Betty is Corabell, and Marcia is Dorabell! Further complicating matters, when Marcia is knocked out by the cement block, Curly calls her Corabell... Marcia played all three girls. See more »

This is, in my humble opinion, the best short the 3 Stooges ever made. The boys go on a strike inside their fiancees' home until their father relents and lets them marry his 3 daughters. Due to all their new found notoriety, a construction company donates a do-it-yourself pre-fabricated home which the boys set out to build after they do get married. Needless to say everything turns out wrong - the bathtub is on the side of the wall and the stairs lead to nowhere. The house collapses when one of the wives unintentionally pulls out a beam. This short was based on a silent by Buster Keaton called One Week. It also contains my all time favorite quote by Moe after Curly's feet get stuck in cement and he decides to use explosives to free him and Curly protests he'll get blown up - "Don't you know that dynamite always blows down?".
