Miscellaneous: After Larry spills the beer on Moe the beer mug changes from the glass one he's holding right after the spill; to a silver one. This was probably necessary to come up with one they could hit someone with.See more »

Moe:Sounds swell to me. Where are the eggs?
Curly:On top of the burro, so they'll be nice and fresh in the sun.

Looking for a phrase, 30 April 2005
Author: davidbielski from Essex, Maryland

I know I've seen this one a million times,BUT Is this the one where Curley says"Ain't Nature Wonderful"?I have a tapeworm's lunch bet on it! According to your guidelines, a comment have to be 10 lines or more. I don't think anyone of the Stooges shorts had more than ten lines of dialog, and you want 10 lines of comments? That's stretching things a little, don't you think, unless of course, the one's submitting comments are a bit on the long winded sort. I'm having difficulty stretching this request longer then I have proceeded so far. I still need two lines in order for this request to go through. I've already over burnt the toast for the tapeworm lunch, on the pure premise that I will be losing this bet in the first place, because this isn't the type of site I was looking for. A place where Stooge devotees could get an answer to questions that goggle doesn't even possess. Is that 10 yet?Well I'll be a monkey's uncle. It rottenly is! And I know that was spelled wrong, Spelt, if you're from the U.K.
