One sequence that was scripted but not filmed involved a film projector. When Stan asks his 'sister' for a table cloth to use as a screen she pulls one from beneath a stack of dishes breaking them all. As Ollie attempts to drape it over a curtain rod Stan bumps into the chair he's standing on sending Ollie crashing through a window. Eventually every things set. The film starts running only it's upside down. A brief pause while it's reset but this time the image is backwards. Finally the film is running correctly showing exciting jungle scenes then a lion charges onto the screen. Stan lets out a yell and he and the ladies run out knocking the projector over and a free for all developes between the two couples. This sequence was probably scrapped because of the expensive optical work required to put the 'couples' in shot. See more »

Don't pay any attention to her. It serves us right for marrying into such a family.
Wait a minute. What's the matter with my family? I'll have you know that my family's just as good as your family.
After all our family's done for your family...
[slaps the table repeatedly]
Let's stop this arguing and get dinner over so I can find out what the surprise is.
[Stan spits out his drink. Mrs. Laurel glares at him while Ollie looks down sheepishly]
Oh, so you told him, didn't ya?

Stan Laurel and Oliver Hardy reached their creative best with Twice Two where they their usual selves and female counterparts. It seems as though Stan and Ollie have married each other's sister and both think it was a great idea as it cements the relationship of the two.
They might have to rethink the notion as a family dinner at the Laurels proves a disaster. The female Ollie falls into a cake during the preparation. There's also a great gag with simply Stan using Ollie's key to open the front door. I won't say more but I think it's a tribute to both of them, especially Stan the creative one that they could get so many laughs with a simple act all of us but shut-ins do nearly every day.
Of course with the female personas half the credit should go to the actresses who provided the voices for the characters. May Wallace for Stan and Carol Tevis for Ollie perfectly match those familiar bodies in drag.
Offspring from these unions would be called double cousins. Just think what those kids might be like.
