Well, gentlemen, we trust you|spent a comfortable night with us.

And we hope|that your breakfast was satisfactory.

Well, to be truthful,|my oatmeal was a little lumpy.

I would've been more comfortable|with another mattress on my bed.

We'll correct those defects|on your next visit.

- Thank you. Goodbye.|- Goodbye.

- Goodbye.|- Goodbye.

What a peaceful day...

Now, listen, if you aren't|out of town in six hours...

...you'll spend 60 days|with a pick and shovel.

Stay away from the freight yards|and stick to the highway.

Well, here's another nice predicament|you've gotten us into.

Your oatmeal was lumpy.|Get out!

Florida isn't that way.|It's this way.

Want a lift, boys?


Oh, yes, sir.|Thank you very much.

Yes, sir.


- You all right?|- Yes, sir.

Here we go.

- Gosh, I think my battery is dead.|- I'll give you a push.

- Oh, thanks.|- Only take a second.

Tell him to put it in gear.

- Put it in gear.|- Okay.

And when I get it going fast|to let his clutch out.

- When it's fast, let your clutch out.|- Right.

Come out and help me.

- Come out and help him.|- Not him, you.

- You all ready?|- All ready.

- Here we go.|- Go ahead.

- Well, thanks ever so much, boys.

- Aren't you going to Florida?|- Florida?

Yes, I hope to go to Florida someday.

I hear it's a very, very pretty place.

I've got to go in the house|and phone for a battery.

Thanks for everything.

See what Superman is doing.

Listen to this:
"Free transportation|and expenses to Dayton.

Phone Evergreen 4-2120."

This is our chance to get out of town.

See if there's one for Florida.|I'm dying for an orange.

You'll have to be satisfied with Dayton.

Come on.

436. This is it.

It's locked.

Another customer.|Hurry up, get that wig on.

And ditch that cigar.

The glasses.

Good morning, sir. I phoned|in answer to your advertisement.

What does he want?|We didn't advertise for two.

But we can do the work of one.

It so happens that our business|takes us to Dayton and I thought...

- We'll see. Come in.|- Thank you.

This way, please.

Aunt Mary, these gentlemen have come|in answer to our advertisement.

- Now what did I do?|- Shh.

She's all broke up over her boy.

- What happened to him?|- Caught a cold, went like that.

Where did he go?

May we offer our deepest sympathies.

- Mine too.|- Thanks.

Come this way.

Here he is, Cousin Charlie.

Sweeter boy never lived.

But what has he got to do|with the trip to Dayton?

- He's going too.|- With us?

No, you're going with him.

Ollie, let's go to Florida.

I'm sorry, sir, but we couldn't|even consider it.

My partner and I have confidential|business to discuss on the way...

...and, well, three's a crowd.|Goodbye and thank you very much.

Well, how do you like that?

Gee, they was perfect for it.

- A stupider pair of jerks I've never seen.|- Perfect is right.

Only a BB-head would let them|get away.

- I didn't think they were sharp.|- Who asked you to start thinking?

- You're in for a sock on the chin.|- Go ahead and start...

Now cut it out, you guys.

You know, Joe,|it ain't right to hit a dame.

- I don't like that crack either, Darby.|- Okay, Ma.

Look, the police.

- We'd better go back.|- To the coffin?

Better to spend one night with a corpse|than 60 days with the cops. Come on.


Uh, we've changed our minds.|That is, if we could both go.

Yeah, I can ride on Ollie's lap.

Just a minute, please.

Aunt Mary's anxious|to have you accompany Charlie.

She says you remind her|of her two nephews...

...Sheldon and Cheesey.|- Isn't that sweet.

I'll give you 100 bucks for the job.

Half when I meet you at the train,|the rest when you deliver Charlie.
