Storyline

Ralph and Norton head off to the Raccoon convention in Minneapolis. They lose their wives in the train station and think that they are now traveling alone. Norton has brought along a number of joke items including trick handcuffs, which he promptly puts on himself and Ralph. Not surprisingly, once on they can't get them off which leads to no end of problems, especially when it comes to the sleeping arrangements. In the end, they find out they're on the wrong train and heading in the wrong direction. Written by garykmcd

Trivia

When Ralph and Norton are handcuffed to each other on the train at the point just before Norton asks Ralph; "Ralph, you forgot to ask me one thing.", you can clearly hear an audience member say, "a match". This particular audience member can also be heard laughing loudly throughout this show as well as other "The Honeymooners" broadcasts from the so-called original episodes. However, this is the most egregious case. See more »

Goofs

According to Norton the aroma of egg foo yung, rising at 320 feet per second, takes two minutes to reach his window, Ralph's window four seconds sooner. This would make Ralph's window 37,120 feet off the ground and Norton's another 1280 feet higher than that (and this is in a walk-up apartment). See more »

Great Physical Comedy
23 September 2017 | by See all my reviews

The fat one and the skinny one. The sleeping compartment on a train has provided classic comedy going back to the early days of movies. There is a Raccoon Convention in Minneapolis. The boys are all ready to act like middle schoolers, leaving their wives behind. In order to get money from Alice, Ralph decides to take her along. This leads to the Nortons doing the same thing. As they depart, the women have disappeared. To make matters worse, Ed has a pair of trick handcuffs which he demonstrates for Ralph. Well, you guessed it. They end up hopelessly attached to one another. This is every silent comedy or comedy of the thirties with great physical sight gags and contortionist moves. Norton is hopeless, but Ralph, doing his slow burn, is terrific.
