When Bud and Lou are coming out of their apartment on the way to a new job. They run into the woman that had previously slapped Lou. This time she has an umbrella and Lou ducks the first blow. But on her second swing, she connects and he stumbles against the post at the top of the banister. Bud seems to have anticipated that the top was not attached. He reaches out, but fails to completely stop the top from tumbling. See more »

Lou Costello: She put the whole sign right in front of my puss.
Bud Abbott: Well, there's other people in the cast besides ourselves.
Lou Costello: She didn't put it in front of your face.
Bud Abbott: Well, what is the difference.

Bud Abbott: They see enough of your face.
