The Man with Two Brains

Synopsis: Recently widowed Doctor Michael Hfuhruhurr, the world's greatest neurosurgeon, injures Dolores Benedict in a car accident. He operates on her and saves her life using a technique of his own invention: cranial screw-top brain entry. As Benedict recovers, Hfuhruhurr falls in love with her and they are soon married. However, Benedict is only interested in Hfuhruhurr's money and Hfuhruhurr still yearns for his previous wife. They travel to Vienna to attend a medical conference where Hfuhruhurr finally divorces Dolores, meets a mysterious Doctor Alfred Necessiter and becomes entangled in a series of murders committed by The Elevator Killer.

Just like we did, remember?


I've had the top of her head off,

but that's as far as it went.

I promise I'll never recite

our favorite poem to anyone but you.

"In Dilman's Grove"

In Dilman 's Grove

My love did die

And now in ground

She'll ever lie

None could e'er

Replace her visage

Until your face

Brought thoughts of kissage


Good. I'm glad you're here.

Make a note.

Right arm grip strength,

very good.

Left arm, there's just no improvement.

Went out and got you a little present.

"The Complete Poems

of John Lilyson."

"England's greatest one-armed poet"?

He wrote "In Dilman's Grove"

and "Pointy Birds."

Oh, pointy birds

Oh, pointy, pointy

Anoint my head

Anointy, nointy

He died in 1894.

He was the first person

ever to be hit by a car.

- You were almost killed by a car.

- Michael.

That's all over now.

That man you ran away

from that night?

Poor old Mr. Creswell.

It was all my fault, in a way.

I never should've gone there alone.

I guess I'm just too trusting.

Poor little bird.

So fragile. So naive.

So childlike. So shy.

So chaste.

So innocent.

Rebecca, if there's anything wrong

with my feelings for Dolores...

...just give me a sign.

No! No! No!

Just any kind of sign.

I'll keep on the lookout for it.

Meanwhile, I'll just put you

in the closet.

In sickness or in health,

till death do you part.

- I do.

- I now pronounce you man and wife.

You may kiss the bride.

Not now.

There it is, darling. Your new home.

The House of Hfuhruhurr.

What are those assholes doing

on the porch?

Those aren't assholes.

It's pronounced "azaleas."

I put them there for you.

No, Ramon. My wife will not be entering

her new home in a wheelchair.

I want this moment to last forever.

Seor, would you like

to eat your breakfast now?
