Many of the gags about the Boys trying to hide Mae were different in the script. At one point the suspicious Mrs Hardy marches past Stan who not quite seeing who it is grabs her and hurls her into the wardrobe. He then tells Ollie that at last he's got her hidden Mae is actually hiding under the covers on the Hardy bed which Stan quickly finds out when Ollie asks him to get a bed sheet and in whipping one off the bed reveals Mae. Mrs Hardy's suspicions are further aroused when Ollie yanks open the wardrobe door, throws a bed sheet over her and pulls her to the floor. By the time she regains her breath and Ollie regains his senses Mae is hidden under the bed but it's a folding one and starts doing just that. nearly exposing her. Ollie quickly sits on the bed and the wives storm out. See more »

Keep fooling those women. Stan and Ollie are married and living in relative luxury. They see so much of each other that when the Laurels want to come over, the Hardys try to avoid them. It doesn't work and they end up together. Soon the boys go out for ice cream (apparently a regular event because this is not the only time). They end up with the miserable Charlie Hall making this a hard proposition. While out, they save a suicidal woman from drowning. Instead of gratitude, she begins to extort them for money to be quiet about having dealings with her. Modern audiences would recognize her as a hooker. The police are after her and are offering a huge reward. The fun starts as she makes her way to their home and dresses in the wive's clothing. Of course, the job now is to hide this woman from the wives till they can pay her off. Mae Busch is sort of tragic as the woman. Ollie does get the last word in the final scene.
