Moe: [opens a top drawer, looks, then to Shemp] Say, where are the towels?
Shemp: In the bottom drawer.
Moe: [shakes his head, then opens the bottom drawer, and pulls out a towel] Ah, here we are.
[stands straight up, and puts his head through the bottom of the still open top drawer. He turns around slightly groggy and walks towards Shemp with the drawer still around him]
Larry: [to Moe, laughing] Boy, you sure look funny wearing a buster brown collar.
Moe: [handing Larry the towel] Hold that.

Shemp the Pimp
20 July 2005 | by See all my reviews

There are one or two other Shemp-era shorts I like more (i.e. SCRAMBLED BRAINS), but I think one can say--without much argument--that in this particular episode, Shemp gives his greatest comedic performance as a stooge after rejoining the team in 1946.

Scene for scene, this episode hardly lets up: from Professor Shemp Howard's voice lessons with the glass-shattering Dee Green, to his futile attempts to win a dame's hand in marriage (this is your little snookums... will you marry me *click*) to the uproarious finish, it never fails to keep me in stitches.

I would be remiss not mention that immortal scene with Miss Hopkins (the always lovely Christine McIntyre). Btw, isn't she rather under-dressed and over amorous in greeting the man she thinks is her 'Cousin' Basil? Who knows, maybe the actual Basil was a "very" distant cousin, which makes it legal in some states (as far as I know). >:-]
