Although Emil Sitka is famous for the line "Hold hands, you lovebirds!" from this short, the first time he says the line, he actually says, "Join hands, you lovebirds." See more »

[Giving instructions to Miss Dinkelmeyer]
Gargle with old razor blades.
Miss Fanny Dinkelmeyer:
All right, professor. I know you wouldn't want anything to happen to my throat.
Except to have somebody cut it.
How'd you like to be married to a dame like that?
Don't even say that!

A Three Stooges short, this one featuring Shemp. Of all those involving Shemp I've seen, this is my favorite performance by him in a Stooges short. The basic plot is that Shemp must get married by 6 o'clock that very evening if he's to inherit the half a million dollars a rich uncle left him in his will. So Shemp sets out to get himself a bride but finds it a tougher road than expected, that is until they learn of his inheritance money. Best bits here involve Shemp shaving, Shemp and Moe in a telephone booth and Larry on piano as accompaniment to Shemp's voice-training session. Also the sequence where Shemp is mistaken as Cousin Basil and its outcome proves hilarious.
