Quotes

Alma Matter: I see you've decided to major in criminology.
Moe: That's right, ma'am. All we want is the facts, ma'am.
Shemp: We chose criminology because it's scientific.
Larry: Indeed! In a lexicon of crime, it is theoretically propounded that passion, inhibition, and delinquency are the major contributing factors.
Moe: Not to mention corruption of mind, detestations, and schizophrenia, if I may be so sesquipedalian.
Shemp: A jerk with a quirk may do the work. Or, a Turk with a dirk may stick a clerk.

Dum De Dumb Dum.... Dum De Dumb Dum Dump.....
9 March 2006 | by (Houston, TX USA) – See all my reviews

"Blunder Boys" happens to be a parody of an old Crime Drama " Dragnet" Moe makes a good dead-pan narration of LAPD detective Joe Friday, as played by the Late Jack Webb. Webb was the driving force of Universal-Based Mark VII Limited Productions (The logo that featured the hammer and chisel, and #7 which is etched in stone-in roman numerals. Moe was Halliday, Larry was Tarraday, and Shemp played various characters that ends in day (St. Patrick's Day, Groundhog Day, New Year's Day, Christmas Day, Independence Day, and Labor Day). There were good detectives, but The Boys ended up on the streets-somebody HAS to do the dirty work around here. A great stooge short. See it in its entirety commercial-free, NOT on Spike. BTW: what's the 81-C? A double-eye poke in which Moe gave to BOTH Larry and Shemp. Don't Try This or ANY other pain-crunching methods at home.
