Lou Costello: Mr. Fields, you are invited to my party.
Sid Fields: You're finally inviting me. You want me to bring a present, huh?
Lou Costello: Look, Mr. Fields, a lot of people are going to bring me presents. You don't have to bring me no present.
Sid Fields: I see. Everybody brings a present. You want me to come empty-handed. People should look at me and say, "Sidney Fields is a cheapskate," huh? "Sidney Fields is nothing but a dirty, broken-down tramp." Is that it?
Lou Costello: Look, Mr. Fields. You don't look like no tramp. You look nice.
Sid Fields: I don't, huh?...

Strange Departure For This Series & Lou's Birthday
5 October 2010 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

When I saw this it is only the second time I've seen Lou Costello trying to do a pathos type of comedy. The first time was in the feature Little Giant. The effort in Little Giant is more successful.

Eddie Forman's script here has Abbott & Costello hosting a birthday party for Lou. Lou serves all his friends (by accident) crackers laced with rat poison. Everybody at the party chokes on the poison & Abbott gets angry & screams at Lou to get out. Bud's screaming looks so real that you would think the two were actually fighting again when the episode was filmed.

Despondent about his mistake, Lou then wanders aimlessly about town for a while & then goes to the bakery to order a huge birthday for himself to cheer himself up. While an interesting departure for this series, this one does not really work real well with the only funny moments at the party & the bakery. In between is just too serious.
