After Bud and Lou are appointed as judges of the Miss Mud Turtle Beauty contest, they are pressured by Mr. Fields to pick the landlord's niece and a gangster to choose his moll as the winner and are faced with losing either their apartment or their lives. Written by
This is one of the best episodes of the second season. Abbott and Costello get to be judges of a Miss Mud-Turtle lodge contest. Mr. Fields wants his man-hungry niece to win and bribes Abbott by foregoing rent money. At the same time a gangster pays $100 for his girl friend to be picked. Unfortunately, Costello knows nothing about this and chooses sexy contestant #5. This brings the wrath of both Mr. Fields and the gangster.
There is a line in this episode which somehow made it past the censors that is hilarious. Contestant #5 gives Lou her phone number and says, "If a man answers, don't hang up. He's very broad-minded." The meaning is obvious -- she is a professional prostitute living with her pimp. How did the censors miss that?
