When Ollie tells Stan about his plans to elope, he mentions it's "strictly on the qui vive." What he meant to say was "on the QT", which means to keep quiet. "Qui vive" is French for "on the lookout." See more »

Ollie is ready to get married when his plump bride's father, Jimmy Finlayson, forbids it. He can't see his daughter hooked up with this guy. Well, the logical thing to do, is to elope. Stan is given the job of assisting the loving couple. Unfortunately, rather than a limo to support the two rather large folks, he gets a small car and when they sit in the back the front of the car rises in the air. This is just the beginning as things go from bad to worse. With all that happens, they darn near pull it off, which is almost a first for the hilarious duo, but Ben Turpin shows up. He is one of those character actors that needed only use his face. He provides the coup de grace because of his one amazing feature. It is to die for.
