SCRAMBLED BRAINS

Shemp has been a very sick man, suffering from hallucinations, and has been in a sanitarium, but it gets too expensive for Moe and Larry to keep him there, so they bring him home. When they go to bring Shemp home, they learn that he's marrying his "beautiful" nurse, Nora (who is downright homely!) At Nora's apartment building, they have a run in with a stranger who is carrying groceries. They get the better of him, and he vows to get revenge if he ever sees them again. The day of the wedding, they discover that the stranger is Nora's father, and all hell breaks loose!



The Stooges' serenade tune "Nora" was written by... Moe, Larry & Shemp. They introduced the song in THREE HAMS ON RYE (1950) as "Jane," as well as the feature GOLD RAIDERS (1951); see The Three Stooges Journal # 96 (Winter 2000).

Stooge Goofs   (5)
  • Backwards Keyboard
    Shemp slams the keyboard cover on the "extra hands", smashing his own fingers. When he withdraws and opens the cover, there are severed fingers playing the piano. However, the fingers are playing DOWN the scale when the music is going up the scale, and vice-versa.

  • Changed Position
    Just after Moe makes Shemp eat a piece of banana to get him to swallow the sleeping pill, Shemp sticks out his tongue with the pill stuck on the end of it. His mouth is closed when he does this, but the very next scene shows Shemp with his tongue stuck out and his mouth wide open.

  • Missing Panel
    Just after the boys roll out of the crashed phone booth, Vernon Dent puts his head out of the booth panel which just in the scene before was filled with glass.

  • Missing Part
    After Moe tells Shemp to keep on practicing the piano, the camera cuts over to a close-up of Shemp saying â€Å"--my own hands”, but they didn't even show the beginning of his sentence.

  • Unintended Shadow
    Moe, Larry and Shemp mistake a shadow for a window and try to jump out of it, crashing instead into the wall. The next scene shows the boys with dazed looks (and chirping-bird noises) while in front of the window-shadow. The shadow of Vernon Dent is seen moving into the window-shadow just before the scene cuts to Vernon Dent himself, who has yet to begin walking towards the boys.

We open "SCRAMBLED BRAINS" where we are seeing a huge, metal inlayed sign on the side of a bricked "NUT CAGE" that reads as follows:


CROAKERS SANITARIUM
UNDER THE MANAGEMENT OF
DOCTORS
HART-BURNS AND BELCHER

Plus we are hearing the sounds of traffic on the autobahn below the "BOOB HATCH."

We are now inside of the Receptionists Office that is decorated with grey styling Berber carpeting. There is one little dark cherry wooden end table by a hallway that leads into the Doctors Examination Rooms.

There is one main, huge window with an opened Venetian blind on it. And, to your right, there is another dark cherry wooden little side table with different reading materials on it. To your left, there is a dark cherry wooden circular sized table with patient entrance forms on it.

On the wall of the window, slightly to your right, there are two framed University Medical Certificates, and beneath the Certificates, slightly to your left are two dark cherry wooden medical cabinets with stained glass doors, and inside of the cabinets there are different tubes, vials, syringes, and canisters of different types of medications.

On the wall just catty corner right of the window wall we see a four hook wooden clothing hanger with four white Doctors coats hanging on it. Just a slight left, there is a small wall lamp and on the same wall as the lamp, slightly below it, we see hanging tne patient charts.

In the middle of the room is a huge, dark cherry wooden desk, that has on it a table lamp, pens and pencils cup, an ink blotter with a desk calendar on it, a paging box, a telephone, and a taxidermed buzzard, plus by the left side of the desk there are three dark cherry, wooden cane backed straight chairs. Plus standing at the right of the desk there is a Nurse completing some filing chores.

Behind the circular table there is a huge, solid bricked fireplace with a white marbling mantle and hearth plus a stained glass fireplace door.

On the fireplace mantle in the centre there is a hand cut crystal flower vase that has in it an assortment of fresh cut flowers. And on both sides of the mantle there are some fresh plants. Hanging above the mantle, centred on the wall is an oil sketching of a city scene. On the right wall of the fireplace is another oil sketching of some flowers and trees. On the hearth of the fireplace at both ends are some fresh plants and in the centre by the fireplace door is a set of cleaning utensils.

To the right of the fireplace there is another dark cherry wooden circular style table with legs that look like wishbones and on top of the table in the centre is another hand cut crystal flower vase with some more assorted fresh cut flowers in it, on the left side of the table is a fresh plant, and on the right side of the table there is a white ceramic casting of a swordfish.

We are still inside of the Receptionists Office where we are now seeing the two very worried Moe and Larry; {dressed in dark grey suits, white dress shirts, black-white-and-grey patterned ties, and black dress shoes}: They are now pacing to and fro in opposite directions with their hands clasped behind their backs as they have really worried and concerned looks on their faces as they are now worried about the mental condition of Shemp.

MOE to LARRY: {As Moe is holding onto his hat and has a frantic look on his face and he now has his hands balled up into fists and is waving his arms up and down as he is stating to Larry in a panicking voice}: "This is terrible, how long can a thing like this take?"

LARRY to MOE: {As Larry is now panickly walking around in circles as he is waving his arms from side to side and is stating to Moe in a really scared and panicked voice}: "I don't know, I'm going crazy myself, ho-ho-ho-ho!"

We are now seeing Shemp walking out from the Examination Area; {dressed in a black suit, white dress shirt, black and white stripped tie, and black dress shoes}, in a really happy state as an "ORDERLY"; {JOHNNY KASCIER}; is following behind Shemp toting his luggage case.

As Shemp was walking out and greeting Moe and Larry, Moe and Larry were smiling back at Shemp in glee.

SHEMP to MOE and LARRY: {As Shemp now has a really happy look on his face as he is stating to them in a really gleeful voice}: "Hiya, fellas!"

LARRY to SHEMP: {As Larry has a really happy look on his face and is shaking his hand is shouting to Shemp in glee}: "Shemp, you look wonderful, you're all cured!"

MOE to SHEMP: {As Moe is smiling at Shemp and shaking his hand and saying to him in a really happy voice}: "Boy, we can take you home now, and you can relax. No more nerves!"

LARRY to SHEMP: {As Larry is now smiling from ear to ear in glee as he is stating to Shemp in a really happy voice}: "No more hallucinations!"

MOE to SHEMP: {As Moe is looking at him with a devious look and is wagging a finger at him and saying to him in a devious voice}: "And, no more seeing things that aren't there!"

SHEMP to MOE and LARRY: {As Shemp is standing there holding onto his hat as he has a worried look on his face as he is stating to them in a happy voice}: "That's swell, but wait, I gotta see Nora before I leave!"

Here we are seeing in the background a nurse wheeling in another patient. We are seeing Larry looking at MOe with a really bug-eyed and worried look as Moe is looking at both Shemp and Larry with a freaked out look, as Shemp is looking at both of them with a serious look, as they; {Moe and Larry}; and we are starting to find out that Shemp is "NOT TOTALLY CURED YET!"

LARRY to SHEMP: {As Larry is looking at Shemp really worried as he is shouting to Shemp in a really worried and questionable voice}: "Nora, who's Nora?"

SHEMP to LARRY and MOE: {As Shemp has a really happy look on his face and is saying to them in a gleeful voice}: "She's the most beautiful nurse in the world, and I'm madly in love with her!"

Here we are once again seeing both Larry and Moe glaring pop-eyed at Shemp in horrible worry as they, and we, are seeing that Shemp is still a "TAD OFF OF HIS ROCKER!"

MOE to SHEMP: {As Moe is looking at Shemp with a really worried look and is stating to him in a really worried and questionable voice}: "You, don't say?"

SHEMP to MOE: {As Shemp is standing there and still holding onto his hat as he has a happy and slightly mischievous look on his face as he is saying to Moe in a contented and slightly mischievous voice}: "Yeah, wait until you see her, she's got eyes like stars, and a shape like Venus; {here we are seeing Shemp using hand gestures to outline the body of a really gorgeous woman}; and teeth like pearls, my Nora!"

{UGLY} NORA to SHEMP: {As she is standing there slightly off camera and is saying to him in a serious and slightly lovey-dovey voice}: "Yes?"

We are seeing Larry looking at Shemp with a really worried look as Moe now has his hands on his waist in fists as he is now looking at Shemp with a really disgusted look.

We are now getting a look at the "SO CALLED BEAUTIFUL NORA"; {BABE LONDON}. Nurse Nora is now walking into the Receptionists Office. She is about 5'5" to 5'6" in height. 19 to 22 Stone; {266 to 308 U.S. pounds}; in weight. She is slightly dirty in her appearance. Her make-up is smeared and blotched on. She is wearing a really large sized, dirty and wrinkle nurses uniform, plus her cap is also dirty and is slightly falling off of her head. She has on a pair of tights with ladders in the, and her uniform shoes are badly marred up. Really short, pin curled and greasy hair that is standing on the end in the front. A wart on her nose, and badly wrinkled skin. She has half of her teeth missing, and the half that she does have are badly decaying away.

We are now seeing Moe and Larry flinching backwards and slightly grimacing as they are grabbing onto one another in fear as they are looking at each other with really scared looks and their eyes popping out of their heads and their mouths agait in fear as they are now scared witless at what Shemp is seeing. Nora is now giving Shemp a huge; {decayed toothed}; sweet smile.

We are now seeing Shemp with a really lovely look on his face; {because every time he looks at the "UGLY NORA", he is hallucinating and seeing a really "GORGEOUS NORA"; {PAMELA BRITTON}. She has thick, beautifully curled, shoulder length pristine clean platinum blonde hair. About 5'4" to 5'5" in height. About 7 to 9 Stone; {98 to 126 U.S. pounds} in weight. Lovely, big, green eyes.

She is now smiling at Shemp with a pearly, white, huge and lovely smile as she has now given Shemp a beautiful wink.

Shemp is now spasticking out as he is now looking adorningly at Nora and is seeing the "IMAGINARY BEAUTIFUL NORA!"

SHEMP to {UGLY} NORA: {As he is still looking at the "IMAGINARY BEAUTIFUL NORA" and is batting his eyes at her and is saying to her in a really lovey-dovey voice}: "Nora, my beautiful Sunflower!"

SHEMP to MOE and LARRY: {As Shemp now has a really lovey-dovey look on his face and is batting his eyes still at her in pure love as Shemp is walking up to the "UGLY NORA" still thinking that she is the "BEAUTIFUL NORA" and is kissing her hand as he is saying to them in a voice of pure love}: "Ain't she a dream?"

Moe and Larry are standing there still holding onto their hats as they are looking at Shemp with really sad and concerned looks as they are now starting to really realise that Shemp is still "NOT WELL!", as we are still seeing the "UGLY NORA" standing there clasping her hands to her chest as she is now batting her eyes and flashing a half toothed, decayed smile of love at Shemp.

We are now seeing Shemp walking up to her and is kissing her hand as she is giggling in a state of love and glee.

SHEMP to {UGLY} NORA: {As Shemp is still seeing the "BEAUTIFUL NORA", as he is flashing goo-goo eyes at her and is stating to her in a loving voice}: "There's something about you that I love!"

LARRY to MOE: {As Larry is now looking at Moe with a really worried look and is whispering to Moe in a low and worried voice}: "Now, I've seen a dream walking!"

MOE to LARRY: {As Moe is standing there with his arms clasped behind his back as he is looking at Shemp and Nora with a really worried look as he is now whispering back to Larry in a worried voice}: "Dream? She's a nightmare!"

LARRY to MOE: {As Larry now has a mischievous look on his face as he is stating to Moe in a worried and slightly mischievous voice}: "Hey, you know what? I think she's uglier that you are!"

MOE to LARRY: {As Moe has a dazed look on his face as he is stating to Larry in a mischievous and slightly mean voice}: "Yeah, she's got......!" {We are now seeing Moe realising what Larry had said about him and he slightly flinches as Moe is now looking at Larry with a really ugly and mad look as he is now giving Larry an eye-poke}: "W-H-A-T?"

Here we are seeing Larry rubbing his eyes in horrible pain.

MOE to LARRY: {As Moe now has a really wicked look on his face as he is now taking his right hand and is balling it up into a fist as he is evily shouting to Larry}: "See that?"

LARRY to MOE: {As Larry now has a mean look on his face as he is pushing Moe's hand away and saying to him in a mean voice}: "Heeha, don't do that!"

Moe is now taking his fist as he is now hitting Larry hard on the head as Larry now has a hurt look on his face and is now rubbing his cocoanut in pain.

LARRY to MOE: {As Larry has a mad look on his face as he is now balling his right hand into a fist and is saying to Moe in a really mean and disgusted voice}: "See that?"

We are now seeing Moe smacking Larry's hand as Larry is now spinning his hand in circles and ends up hitting himself on the head instead of Moe's. Larry is now looking up at the ceiling in pain and once again is rubbing his head in pain.

We are now back on the "TWO LOVE BOIDS?", as Shemp has a really happy and goo-goo eyed look on his face as he is hugging and kissing the "UGLY NORA", and still is thinking it is the "GORGEOUS NORA."

LARRY to MOE: {As Larry is looking at Moe with a really disgusted look on his face as he is stating to Moe in a mean tone of voice as he is now pointing a finger in the direction of Shemp and Nora}: "Now, wait a minute, cut it out. I thought he was suppose to be cured of seeing things? We better leave him here!"

MOE to LARRY: {As Moe is now looking at Larry with a really concerned look as he is whispering to Larry in a really worried voice}: "We can't afford it, we'll have to take him home and cure him ourselves!"

We are now seeing Moe and Larry with really worried and hurt looks on their faces about the mental condition of Shemp.

We are now getting a shot of Nora and Shemp as the "UGLY NORA" is now holding Shemp in her arms and is laughing gleefully, hugging and kissing Shemp in true love as she thinks that Shemp is in love with her, while in "REALITY?", Shemp is still in "HIS OWN LITTLE WORLD" and is seeing the "GORGEOUS NORA" as he has a lovey-dovey look on his face and love stars in his eyes as he is in love with that Nora.

SHEMP to {UGLY} NORA: {As Shemp is still in "LA-LA LAND" and is flirting with her and is stating to her in a really joyful voice}: "Oh, Nora, beautiful light of my life, will you marry me?"

Here we are seeing the "UGLY NORA" looking at Shemp in a really happy state as she is now clasping her hands together and sighing in loving delight as she is now giving Shemp a peck on the cheek. While Shemp is thinking that he has now proposed to the "GORGEOUS NORA."

{UGLY} NORA to SHEMP: {As she is smiling a decayed toothed smile at him in a state of love and is asking him in a gleeful voice}: "When?"

SHEMP to {UGLY} NORA: {As Shemp is thinking that he is in the arms of the "LOVELY NORA" and is answering her back in a really gleeful voice}: "Oh, soon angel, soon, very soon, and we'll honeymoon on the 'Isle of Stromboli!"

Here we are seeing the "UGLY NORA" laughing, cooing, and smiling in delight as she is joyfully accepting Shemp's marriage proposal."

{UGLY} NORA to SHEMP: {As she is now laughing and cooing in a state of happiness as she now has a huge smile on her face and is saying to him in a gleeful voice as she is now plastering a huge kiss on his lips}: "Ooooha-ooooha-ooooha-ooooha-ooooha-ooooha-ooooha-ooooha; darling, whooa-whooa-whooa-whooa-whooa-whooa-whooa-whooa; smack-smack-smack-smack-smack-smack-smack-smack!"

We are now getting a glimpse of Moe and Larry as they are now closing their eyes and grimacing and have hurt and painful looks on their faces as they are seeing the real side os what Shemp is now going through.

MOE to LARRY: {As Moe is now proceeding to sit down in a chair with a look of dismay on his face as he is stating to Larry in a really worried voice}: "Boy, he's got worse hallucinations that I thought!"

LARRY to MOE: {As Larry has a look of pain on his face as he is also sitting down and is stating to Moe in a really sad and worried voice and Larry is wagging his head back and forth}: "Hopeless, hopeless!"

We are now back on poor Shemp and the "UGLY NORA" as she is still holding Shemp in her arms and smacking hi all over his face with kisses as his face is now smothered with lipstick kiss marks as Shemp is smiling gleefully and sighing in a state of love as he is thinking that it is being done by the "BEAUTIFUL NORA".

We are now seeing the "UGLY NORA" also with her face covered in kisses marks as she now sighs in glee and has a look of pure love on her face. Shemp is also standing there with his face covered in kisses marks as he also has a look of love and glee on his face as he sighs in love, thinking he has now proposed to the "IMAGINARY BEAUTIFUL NORA!"

SHEMP to {UGLY} NORA: {As both of them are standing in the Receptionists Office in total love as he is saying to her in a really happy and lovey-dovey voice thinking all the while that he was kissing the "IMAGINARY BEAUTIFUL NORA"}: "Good-bye, my beautiful!"

We are now seeing Shemp's "FIANCÉE?" leaving the Receptionists Office, as we are seeing the still slightly "SPASTIC" Shemp walking around the Receptionists Area as he is now talking to the things in the Office.

SHEMP to A CHAIR: {As Shemp has now patted the arm of the chair in delight as he is saying to it in a happy voice}: "Good-bye, old chair!"

SHEMP to the TAXIDERMED BUZZARD: {As Shemp is now approaching it with a happy look and is now patting its beak}: "Good-bye, old bird!"

SHEMP to the SWORDFISH CASTING: {As Shemp is now looking at it in total happiness and glee as he is now giving it a kiss good-bye}: "Good-bye, old fish!"

SHEMP to the FIREPLACE: {As Shemp has now totally "DOVEN OFF OF THE DEEP END", as he has now patted and kissed the mantle and has looked inside of it, and has now smiled happily}: "Good-bye, old fireplace!"

We are now seeing Shemp shutter in fear as he has now noticed that a hand has come out of the chimney and shook good-bye with him.

We are now at Moe, Larry, and Shemp's Flat, and in Shemp's bedroom quarters: {That is decorated on the right side with his bed that has a black and red plaid blanket on it and red and black plaid designed bed clothing. There is a floor length, black velvet chequed window treatment, and an opened Venetian blind on the windos. Plus, next to the window treatment is a gold floor lamp and on the wall as the lamp we see a small oil sketching of an old farm scene. There is cherry wood wallboard half way up the wall, and the rest of the walls are painted in a pale bleuish-grey colouring of paint. There is also a huge, cherry wooden armoir on the left back wall. On the same side of the room of the armoir there is a little dark cherry wooden night stand with a table lamp on it, along with a telephone and Shemp's medications. Next to the night stand table on the left side is a grey-black-white-and-red paisley printed armed chair. On the right side of Shemp's bed there is rocking chair. The carpeting is black and grey tweeded Berber styling.

We are now seeing Moe fluffing up Shemp's pillow, as Larry is now helping Shemp get into his nightwear; {a pair of blacks stripped pyjamas and a house coat that has doggies on it}.

We are now seeing a very "BEAUTIFUL LITTLE GIRL", I would guess age 6, named; {MARY BELLE}; {ROYCE MILNE}; {Shemp's Niece}; standing in front of Shemp with a really worried look on her face. {She has beautiful thick shoulder length brunette hair, with part of it in a pony tail with a huge bow. Big, beautiful bleu eyes. She is wearing a floral print smock style of a dress with a full sleeved white blouse, white laced anklet stockings, black pattened leather 'Mary-Jane' style of shoes, a plaid coat and a little purse over her left shoulder}. She is holding in her left hand a huge, toy bunny rabbit and in her right hand a toy, talking 'MA-MA' dolly.

SHEMP to LARRY: {As Shemp is looking at Larry with a really sick look on his face as he is saying to Larry in a really sick sounding voice}: "I feel awful!"

LARRY to SHEMP: {As Larry is now helping Shemp to lay down in the bed with a really carrying look on his face as he is saying to him in a re-assuring voice}: "Now, lay down and relax, the Doctor will be here in a minute!"

Here we are seeing Larry helping Shemp lay down as Larry is now applying the bed clothing over Shemp as Moe is looking at Shemp with a really hurt look as the lovely, little Mary Belle is also standing there looking at Shemp in a really hurt state of worry.

MOE to LARRY: {As Moe is now helping Shemp get his pillow situated correctly under his head and is looking at Larry with a really worried look as he is shouting to Larry with a really worried voice}: "Get his medicine!"

LARRY to MOE: {As Larry is now walking over to the night stand table with a worried look on his face as he is using a panicking voice}: "Okay!"

MOE to SHEMP: {As Moe is using a really sweet and re-assuring voice and has a carrying look on his face as he is once again re-adjusting Shemp's pillow}: "Heist up a bit, there we are!" {While Moe was helping Shemp re-adjust his pillow and himself, Shemp was moaning loudly in pain and misery}.

We are now seeing Larry approaching the little end night stand table as he is now picking up a medication canister and is reading it as Moe is now closing the Venetian blind to help make Shemp's room darker so he can sleep better.

LARRY to SHEMP: {As Larry is now approaching Shemp with his medication and a glass of water, is saying to Shemp in a carrying voice}: "Here's your medicine, take it!"

We are now finding out that poor Shemp has trouble swallowing tablets as Shemp is guzzling down the water and supposedly his medication with a really uckie look on his face as Larry and Moe were watching him with worried looks on their faces.

SHEMP to LARRY and MOE: {As Shemp was sitting up in the bed with a really dazed look on his face as Moe and Larry were looking at him in a state of worry as Shemp was saying to them in total protest and disgust}: "Umha-umha-umha-umha-umha-umha; ooooh-ooooh-ooooh-ooooh-ooooh-ooooh; heebglubba-heebglubba-heebglubba-heebglubba-heebglubba-heebglubba; ooooha-ooooha-ooooha-ooooha-ooooha-ooooha; heenha-heenha-heenha-heenha-heenha-heenha; good!"

All the while that Moe and Larry were taking care of Shemp, that sweet, lovely, little girl, Mary Belle was standing there still holding her toy dolly and her huge, toy rabbit with a really worried look on her beautiful little face.

We are now hearing a loud rapping on their front door.

MOE to LARRY: {As Moe is now getting Shemp comfortable one last time and is looking at Larry with a serious look and is stating to Larry in a serious voice}: "That must be the Doctor!"

LARRY to MARY BELLE: {As Larry is looking at the beautiful child with a sweet and serious look as he is stating to her in a really carrying voice}: "You better go now, Mary Belle!"

We are now seeing the sweet, little Mary Belle picking up her rabbit and dolly and is now giving her dolly a hug and causing it to say 'Ma-Ma' as she is now skipping happily out of Shemp's bedroom quarters.

Again, we are hearing a very loud and persistant rapping on their front door.

MOE to THE DOOR: {As Moe is now walking up to their front door and is using a serious voice}: "Coming, Doc!"

We are now seeing the lovely, little Mary Belle peeking in the doorway of Shemp's bedroom quarters as she is now skipping over to Shemp's bed to give him a kiss, as Larry is now motioning for her to leave. Larry is now straightening up Shemp's pillow again, and Moe is now in the process of answering their front door.

This time as the lovely, little Mary Belle is leaving, she has accidentally dropped her dolly; {which happens to be a talking 'Ma-Ma' dolly}; by the rocking chair un-announced to anyone.

Moe is now in the process of opening the front door as we are now seeing the Doctor. He is gazing into space with a really blank look on his face. {He is dressed in a grey pin stripped vest and pants, plain grey jacket, white dress shirt, black tie and shoes}. Would say betwixt 6'1" to 6'2" in height. 13 to 16 Stone; {182 to 224 U.S. pounds}, in weight. Thick black moustache, un-kempt salt and pepper hair, really thick "COKE BOTTLE" lenses spectacles, and he is toting a black Doctor's case.

MOE to the DOCTOR: {As Moe is looking at him with a really serious look and is stating to him in a serious voice}: "Oh, come in, "DOCTOR GEZUNDHEIDT;" {EMIL SITKA}; the patient is right over there!"

We are now seeing Doctor Gezundheidt with a really blank stare on his face as he is now walking over to Shemp's bed.

DOCTOR GEZUNDHEIDT to LARRY, SHEMP, and MOE: {As he is now removing his hat and is taking his stethoscope from his pocket and is asking them in professional, mono-tone voice}: "Well, what seems to be the trouble?"

LARRY to DOCTOR GEZUNDHEIDT: {As Larry is looking at him with a mischievous look and is stating to him in a mischievous voice}: "You're the Doctor, you otta know!"

MOE to LARRY: {As Moe is slapping Larry on the forehead and looking at him with an ugly look and is shouting at him meanly}: "Quiet!"

Here we are seeing Larry looking at Moe with a really ugly and hurt look as Larry is now rubbing his forehead in pain.

SHEMP to DOCTOR GEZUNDHEIDT: {As Shemp is now sitting up in his bed and has a sick look on his face and is telling him his woes in a really sick sounding voice}: "Gosh, Doctor, I feel pretty rotten, my stomach it seems so bloated, and my head......"

DOCTOR GEZUNDHEIDT to SHEMP: {As he is standing there with a really carrying look on his face as he is using a really carrying voice}: "Ooooh, yes go on, how does your head feel?"

SHEMP to DOCTOR GEZUNDHEIDT: {As Shemp is now patting his head and is saying to him in a slightly crying voice}: "Oh, the usual empty feeling!"

Here we are seeing Larry looking at Moe with a really concerned and worried look.

DOCTOR GEZUNDHEIDT to SHEMP: {As he is using a carrying and professional voice as he is now placing his stethoscope up to Shemp's forehead}: "Heemha, let's just see!" {Here we are seeing Larry and Moe with really dazed looks on their faces as with Doctor Gezundheidt as he has now placed his stethoscope up to Shemp's forehead once again as we are now hearing a coo-coo clock chirping in Shemp's head}.

Now we are seeing Moe and Larry standing there with looks of wonderment on their faces as Doctor Gezundheidt has once again put his stethoscope on Shemp's forehead as he is now wagging Shemp's head from side to side as we are hearing a rattling noise like that of coins in a toy bank.

DOCTOR GEZUNDHEIDT to MOE, LARRY, and SHEMP: {As he has now removed his stethoscope from Shemp's forehead}: "Very intersting!"

Doctor Gezundheidt is now sitting on the rocking chair as he is now placing his stethoscope on Shemp's chest as he is now rocking forward on Mary Belle's toy dolly causing it to say 'Ma-Ma'!

Shemp, Larry, Moe, and Doctor Gezundheidt all now have worried looks on their faces as they are wondering what is wrong with Shemp; {not knowing it was a talking dolly they were rocking on}.

Doctor Gezundheidt has now flinched a tad in wonderment and has said; "Unhaha-unhaha-unhaha-unhaha-unhaha;" in what he has heard as Shemp is laying there with a really worried look on his face.

Again, Doctor Gezundheidt has re-gained his composure and has now placed his stethoscope back onto Shemp's chest as he has now, for the second time, rocked the chair and causing the dolly to say, 'Ma-Ma.' Shemp now has a really petrified look of fear on his face as he is wondering what in the world is wrong with himself.

DOCTOR GEZUNDHEIDT to MOE, LARRY, and SHEMP: {As he has a really perplexed and worried look on his face and is stating to them in a really stammering voice as he is now removing his stethoscope from Shemp's chest and is sitting back in the rocking chair with a horrified look of panic on his face}: "Dis-dis-dis-dis-dis-dis-dis-dis-dis; is passing gear; aaaaha-aaaaha-aaaaha-aaaaha-aaaaha-aaaaha; h-h-h-h-h-h-he's!"

We are now on Larry and Moe as Larry is looking at Moe with a quzzical look as he is using hand gestures to support himself as he has now shrugged his shoulders in bewilderment at what is wrong with Shemp.

Here we go again, it is now round three as we are seeing Doctor Gezundheidt placing his stethoscope on Shemp's chest and is rocking forwards and causing the dolly to once again say 'Ma-Ma'!

We are now seeing Doctor Gezundheidt, Moe, Shemp, and Larry with horrified looks of panic on their faces as all four of them have now flinched in panic still not knowing about the talking dolly.

We are now seeing Doctor Gezundheidt standing up and is waving his finger at the petrified Moe and Larry as a signal that he wants to talk to them in private as we are seeing Shemp sitting up in the bed and watching them walk away with a horrified look of fear on his face, and moaning, 'ooooh-ooooh-ooooh-ooooh-ooooh-ooooh-ooooh-ooooh; in horrible pain.

Doctor Gezundheidt is now huddled together with Moe and Larry as they are muttering with one another about Shemp's condition as they are now turning around and looking at Shemp with horrified looks of fear as they are thinking that Shemp has now crossed over into "THE LAND OF HAPPY HAVEN" permanently as Shemp is now looking at the three of them and groaning and flinching in pain and fear.

Here we are now seeing Moe, Larry, and Doctor Gezundheidt breaking up their little huddled consoltation on Shemp as they are now back over to Shemp in stages of fear and panic.

It is now the fourth round as we are seeing Moe and Larry standing by Shemp with worried looks on their faces as Shemp is laying in the bed with a really worried look as Doctor Gezundheit is once again placing his stethoscope on Shemp's chest and is rocking the chair forwards and causing the dolly to talk once again.

Here we are now seeing Larry and Moe jumping backwards in a horrified state of fear as Shemp has now flinched big time in fear as we are seeing Doctor Gezundheidt sitting in the rocking chair in a horrified state of wonderment and panic as he is now looking at his stethoscope trying to figure out what is wrong with it. {Yes, the four of them are still not noticing the dolly under the rocking chair}. Doctor Gezundheidt still has the ear plugs in his ears as he is now blowing on the head piece and causing a loud play back in his ears as he is now dropping the heap piece and grimacing and shouting loudly in pain as he is now taking the ear plugs from his ears.

We are now seeing the poor really petrified Shemp laying in his bed crying in a horrible state of fear as Moe and Larry are standing behind him with terrified lools of worry and pain as they are now trying to comfort the poor, and panicking Shemp as Doctor Gezundheidt is now rubbing his ears in pain.

MOE to SHEMP: {As Moe is standing by the horrified Shemp with a carrying look on his face as he is stating to Shemp in a re-assuring voice}: "Take it easy, kid!"

Doctor Gezundheidt is now for the fifth time placing his stethoscope on Shemp's ches for one last listen as he in now again rocking the chair forward and hearing the sound of 'Ma-Ma' in Shemp's chest and has a very perplexed look on his face as what to do.

We are now un-veiling the "MYSTERY ANSWER" to the 'Ma-Ma' doll sound we were hearing in Shemp's chest as we are now seeing the cute, little, Mary Belle skipping back into Shemp's bedroom quarters and is now picking up her dolly from underneath the rocking chair. {As she was proceeding to pick-up her dolly we were still seeing Shemp laying in the bed crying profusely as Doctor Gezundheidt is still examining the head piece of his stethoscope and Moe and Larry are looking at her with looks of wonderment}.

Mary Belle has now happily picked up her dolly as she is now hugging it and causing it to say 'Ma-Ma' as we are now seeing Shemp laying there flinching a tad at the wonderful discovery of his "MYSTERY DIAGNOSIS". As Doctor Gezundheidt is now looking at Mary Belle and her dolly with a dazed and perplexed look on his face, plus we are seeing Doctor Gezundheidt with his eyes bugging out of his head and his mouth agait at the toy dolly discovery.

SHEMP to DOCTOR GEZUNDHEIDT: {As Shemp is now over joyed that his chest problems were just a talking toy dolly says to him with a really gleeful look on his face and is using a gleeful voice as Shemp is now wiping hiw brow in relief}: "It was the doll, hee-hee-hee-hee-hee-hee; haa-haa-haa-haa-haa-haa; shewh, oh boy! You know Doc, I haven't slept a wink since I've come home." {We are also seeing Moe, Larry, and Doctor Gezundheidt all with looks of relief on their faces as they are also now discovering it was just a talking toy dolly}.

DOCTOR GEZUNDHEIDT to SHEMP: {As he is sitting in the rocking chair with a really concerned look on his face as he is stating to Shemp in a carrying voice as he is now approaching his medical case}: "Oh, yeah, will take care of that, heemha!" {Here we are seeing Doctor Gezundheidt taking a prescription canister out of his medical case and giving one tablet to Moe to give to Shemp}.

DOCTOR GEZUNDHEIDT to MOE: {As he is looking at Moe with a serious look and is stating to Moe in a really serious voice}: "Aaaha, give him one of these pills about every three hours. It should put him to sleep like that!" {Here we are seeing Doctor Gezundheidt snapping his fingers}.

MOE to DOCTOR GEZUNDHEIDT: {As both Moe and Larry are standing there looking at him with worried looks as Moe is stating to him in a concerned voice}: "Well, that's the trouble Doc, he cannot swallow a pill!"

DOCTOR GEZUNDHEIDT to MOE and LARRY: {As he is stating to the two of them in a really mono-tone and professional voice and has a worried look on his face}: "Oh, well then, I'll have to give him a hypodermic!"

We are now seeing Moe, Larry, and Doctor Gezundheidt standing there watching Shemp with looks of wonderment and fear as we are now seeing Shemp laying in his bed kicking his legs wildly, throwing his bed clothing to the floor, pounding his hands, rolling from side to side, and screaming at the top of his lungs in fear and panic about getting the hypodermic syringe.

SHEMP to DOCTOR GEZUNDHEIDT: {As Shemp is still in his horrible state of panic is yelling loudly in fear}: "No, no, not that, not a hypodoimic, no-no-no-no-no-no-no-no. I don't want no hypodoimic, I don't want no hypodoimic, I don't want no kypodoimic, I don't want no hypodoimic, no, not a hypodoimic!"

Here we are now seeing the poor Shemp so scared and petrified about the tought of getting the hypodermic syringe that he is now kicking his bed clothing off and is now kicking his legs up and down in panice as he is thrashing around in his bed in fear as he is now out of the bed and down on his knees pounding his hands on the bed-sted and still screaming at the top of his lungs in fear and panic.

DOCTOR GEZUNDHEIDT to SHEMP: {As he is now patting Shemp on his back as Moe and Larry are now calming down the spasticked out Shemp as Doctor Gezundheidt is saying to Shemp in a really soothing and carrying voice}: "All right, all right, relax, no hypodermic!" {We are now finally seeing the poor petrified to the enth-degree Shemp calming down a tad once again as he is now laying down on his chest, comfortably on his bed}.

DOCTOR GEZUNDHEIDT to LARRY and MOE: {As he is looking at them with a serious look and is using a serious voice}: "I will use hypnosis." {Here we are seeing Larry and Moe looking at Doctor Gezundheidt with looks of petrification and horriour}.

We ae seeing Moe and Larry with petrified looks of fear and panic as Larry has now wiggled his fingers at Moe like putting someone under a hypnotic state. Doctor Gezundheidt is now giving both Moe and Larry a re-assuring look as he has now pushed up his sleeves and is approaching Shemp kindly.

DOCTOR GEZUNDHEIDT to SHEMP: {As he has now gently patted Shemp on his back and is stating to Shemp in a really carrying voice}: "All right, turn around and face me!"

SHEMP to DOCTOR GEZUNDHEIDT: {As Shemp is now getting up from laying on his chest and is still calming down from his panic state and is looking at him with a slightly scared look and is stating to him in a really petrified voice}: "I don't want no hypodoimic!"

DOCTOR GEZUNDHEIDT to SHEMP: {As he is gazzing blankly at Shemp and is wiggling his fingers and is waving his hands in circles around Shemp's face and is using a low, soothing, and mono-tone voice}: "All right, turn around and face me, come this way!"

SHEMP to DOCTOR GEZUNDHEIDT: {As Poor Shemp is still thrashing around a tad in the bed and is kicking and screaming in panic thinking that he is going to get a hypodermic syringe and is now shouting to Doctor Gezundheidt in fear}: "I don't want no hypodoimic!"

DOCTOR GEZUNDHEIDT to SHEMP: {As he is still staring at Shemp blankly and is still wiggling his fingers and twirlling his hands in circles at Shemp's face}: "Look, look, me in the eye, look, you see no-think, you hear no-think, you know no-think, you're getting sleepy, drowsy, drowsy, sleepy, sleepy, click-click-click-click-click-click; pheet-pheet-pheet-pheet-pheet-pheet; aaaaha-aaaaha-aaaaha-aaaaha-aaaaha-aaaaha; geeka-geeka-geeka-geeka-geeka-geeka. You're now asleep, eeka-eeka-eeka-eeka-eeka-eeka, asleep, asleep!"

Here we are seeing Shemp sitting up in the bed as he is looking at Doctor Gezundheidt with a blank stare as SHemp all of a sudden throws his head on his left shoulder and then falls flat on his back as he is now supposedly "OUT LIKE A LIGHT!" and is snoaring in "SO-CALLED" peaceful slumber.

All the while that Doctor Gezundheidt was performing his hypnosis on Shemp, Moe and Larry were standing there watching the whole ordeal in horrified fear and panic.

DOCTOR GEZUNDHEIDT to MOE and LARRY: {As he is waving his hand at them summonsing them to not speak and is saying to them in a low and quiet voice}: "S-S-S-S-S-S-H-H-H-H-H-H!"

We are now seeing Moe and Larry tip-toeing around as to not wake up the "SO-CALLED SLEEPING SHEMP."

MOE to LARRY: {As Moe is looking at Larry with a carrying look and is saying to him in a serious and kind voice}: "Cover him up!"

MOE to SHEMP: {As both Moe and Larry are now looking at Shemp with mad looks as Moe is yelling at Shemp at the top of his lungs in a mean voice as Moe has now slapped Shemp on his forehead}: "Why, you imbecile, that joke of yours, cost us twenty bucks. Now, you're gonna go to sleep. You'll take one of the Doctor's quick sleeping pills."

SHEMP to MOE: {As Shemp is sitting in the bed and is looking at Moe mischievously and is saying to him in a mischievous voice}: "All right, but it won't do any good!"

MOE to SHEMP: {As Moe is taking out one of the sleeping tablets in a mean state and is yelling at Shemp in a mad voice as Moe is now placing the tablet into Shemp's mouth}: "Stick out your tongue!"

LARRY to SHEMP: {As Larry has now poured Shemp a glass of water and is extending to Shemp}: "Here, take this water!"

Shemp is now in the process of guzzling down the glass of water but does not swallow the tablet.

MOE to SHEMP: {As Moe is now yelling at Shemp in a mean voice}: "Now, go to sleep!"

SHEMP to MOE: {As we are seeing Shemp looking at Moe mischievously and is using a mischievous voice}: "Okay, but what will I do with this?" {Here we are seeing Shemp sticking out his tongue as he is pointing to the sleeping tablet}.

We are now seeing both Moe and Larry flinching in madness as they are giving Shemp mad looks for not taking the sleeping tablet.

MOE to LARRY: {As Moe has a really mad look on his face and is stating to Larry in a low and mad voice}: "Wait a minute!"

We are now seeing Moe with a really disgusted look on his face as he is now in the process of getting a banana and is peeling it and is now breaking off a section and is giving it to Shemp hoping this will wash down the sleeping tablet.

MOE to SHEMP: {As Moe now has a really ugly look on his face as he is handing Shemp the section of banana and is stating to him in a really evil voice}: "Here, eat that!"

SHEMP to MOE: {As Shemp is now chowing down the section of banana with a happy look on his face as he is using a happy rone of voice}: "Thanks!"

MOE to SHEMP: {As Moe has now gently patted Shemp on his head and is looking at him carryingly and is asking him in a kind and serious voice}: "Did you swallow the banana?"

SHEMP to MOE and LARRY: {As Shemp is looking at them with a wiry smile and is stating to them in a mischievous voicie}: "Okay, but......!"; {Here we are seeing Shemp pointing to the sleeping tablet that is still stuck to his tongue}.

Here we are seeing Larry and Moe standing there with really ugly and disgusted looks on their faces as they are now wanting to strangle Shemp for not yet taking the sleeping tablet.

LARRY to MOE and SHEMP: {As Larry is now in the process of running over to a little end stand as he has a serious look on his face and is using a serious voice}: "Wait a minute, I got a brainstorm!"

MOE to SHEMP: {As Moe is looking at Shemp madly and is saying to Shemp in a serious voice as Moe is now pointing a thumb at Larry's direction}: "Anything in his brain is a storm! What's the matter with ya? Can't you, just, just, get it between your tonsils!" {Here we are now seeing Moe rubbing Shemp's throat hoping this will get the sleeping tablet down}.

SHEMP to MOE: {As Shemp is looking at Moe with a really hurt look on his face as he is saying to Moe in a really hurtful and sad voice}: "I can't get it down!" {Here we are now seeing Moe beating on Shemp's throat as Shemp is now gulping for aire and is trying his darndest to swallow the sleeping tablet}.

MOE to SHEMP: {As Moe is now looking at Shemp with a disgusted look and is asking him in a disgusted and mad voice}: "Did you get it down?"

SHEMP to MOE: {As Shemp is looking at Moe sadly and is saying to Moe in a really hurtful voice}: "Nope!" {Here we are seeing Moe with a really disgusted look on his face as Shemp is now sticking out his tongue still with the tablet on it}.

We are now seeing Larry in their bathroom quarters as he is now removing two hand towels from a towel rack as Larry is now taking down the towl rack tube and is now in the process of using it like a straw hoping he can blow the tablet down Shemp's throat.

MOE to LARRY: {As Moe is now shouting loudly at Larry in a disgusted voice}: "Come on, Larry!"

LARRY to MOE: {As Larry is now testing the tube to see if it will work like a straw and it will. Larry now has a really happy look on his face and is yelling back to Moe in a really happy voice}: "Coming, Moe!"

MOE to LARRY: {As Moe is standing there with his hands balled up into fists as he has them on his waist and is looking at Shemp disgustingly as Moe is shouting at Larry}: "Hurry, up!"

We are now seeing Moe still standing there with his fists on his waist and a really disgusted look on his face as Shemp is sitting up in the bed on his right side with his tongue extended out and the sleeping tablet still stuck to it as we are seeing Larry running up to them happily as he is now showing them his brainstorm of the towel rack tube, straw.

{Before I go on any farther, I would like to put a personal notational here, the amount of time the sleeping tablet was in Shemp's mouth it should have disolved by now}.

LARRY to MOE: {As Larry is now struttin' over to Moe "LIKE A PROUD PEACOCK" and is happily showing Moe his brainstorm as he is stating to Moe in a proud and happy voice}: "I'll blow it down his throat!"

MOE to LARRY: {As Moe is now thoroughly disgusted beyond no end at this sleeping tablet fiasco with Shemp, and Moe has an ugly look on his face as he is stating to Larry in a really disgusted voice}: "Blow his head off, I'm getting disgusted!"

LARRY to SHEMP: {As Larry is now loading the tube with the sleeping tablet and has a mad look on his face as he is saying to Shemp in a disgusted voice}: "All right, now, when I blow, you swallow. Open your mouth!"

Right here we are seeing Shemp blowing the sleeping tablet down Larry's throat instead of Larry blowing it down Shemp's throat. We are now seeing both Larry and Shemp with looks of disgust on their faces as they both are now coughing choaking like they both have swallowed the sleeping tablet, when in reality it was Larry who did.

MOE to SHEMP: {As Moe is now in the process of smoking a cigarette and is walking up to Shemp in a happy state and is saying to him in a happy and slightly disgusted state}: "Well, you're all set kid, go to sleep!"

SHEMP to MOE: {As Shemp is now looking at Moe with a blank stare and is saying to Moe in a serious voice}: "It's funny, but I ain't sleepy!"

Now we are seeing Larry staggering and now falling into a chair as he is now fast asleep and happily snoaring.

Moe is now looking at Shemp with a really evil and disgusted look as Shemp is now looking back at Moe with a really mischievous look as Shemp is now wiggling his fingers at Moe.

MOE to SHEMP: {As Moe is so disgusted with Shemp and he has a really evil and disgusted look on his face and is stating to Shemp in a really disgusted voice}: "Well, you're going to sleep, and how!"

SHEMP to MOE: {As Shemp is now looking at Moe with a look of fear on his face as he is saying to Moe in a scared and protesting voice}: "No, I'm not tiered!"

Here we are seeing the beyond enth-degree disgusted Moe with the canister of sleeping tablets as he is now taking a hold of Shemp by the nose and is bending Shemp's head backwards and prying his mouth open and is now pouring the sleeping tablets down Shemp's gullet hoping to get at least one of the tablets down him.

SHEMP to MOE: {As Shemp is now shouting at the top of his lungs in utter protest as Moe is now prying open his mouth and is dumping the sleeping tablets down his gullet in a horrible state of disgust as Shemp is stating in horrible pain}: "Oh, look out, aaah-agga; aaah-agga; aaaha-agga; aaaha-agga; aaaha-agga; aaaha-agga; aaaha-agga; aaaha-agga; aaaha-agga; aaaha-agga!"

We are now seeing the really disgusted Moe now at first pounding on Shemp's throat, then on his chest, and finally on his head and is now madly shaking Shemp hoping to get at least one of the sleeping tablets down him.

Now we are seeing the mischievous Shemp, who cannot swallow a tablet, rapidly spitting them out right into Moe's face in total disgust.

Moe is now fuming beyond no end in utter disgust with Shemp and his shenanigans that Moe was flinching in madness as Shemp is spitting the tablets in his face that Moe has now picked up the glass towel tube and has visciously smacked Shemp on the head with it six times. Causing Shemp to lower his face backwards and spitting out all but one of the sleeping tablets that Shemp has now accidentally swallowed as Shemp is now finally entering "THE LAND OF NOD!"

MOE to LARRY: {As Moe is still disgusted with the sleeping tablet fiascoe he now reaches over in a state of disgust and has hit the sound asleep Larry on his head with the tubing and says to him in utter disgust}: "And, you too!"

We are now in their living room quarters: {That is decorated with a large dark cherry wooden coffee style of a table in the centre of the room with different reading materials on it. A couple of hand cut crystal flower vases with different assortments of fresh flowers in them. There is a large plaid davenport in the left corner of the room with a smaller davenport that is also plaid catty corner centre of the room. The walls are painted a bi-colour of browns with the darker colour from the floor mid way up the wall and the lighter colour brown the rest of the way up. Plus there is a wall bordering o of light and dark cheque print along the top of the wall by the ceiling. There is a large dark cherry wooden grand-father clock in the right west corner of the room and a large cherry china cabinet on a side east wall. There is also a small, cherry wooden baby grande piano that is tucked away in a corner of the living room and on the wall ath the left side of the piano is an oil sketching of kids playing outside on a beautiful summers day and with four tiny photo-shots of kids two on both sides of the larger oil sketching.

We are now seeing the very well rested Larry now awake; {dressed in a navy bleu suit, white dress shirt, dark bleu and white stripped tie, and black dress shoes. He is holding onto the now well rested Shemp who is now dressed in his pyjamas pants with a white dress shirt, stripped tie and his house coat. Larry is now helping Shemp over to the piano and sitting him down in protest.

SHEMP to MOE AND LARRY: {As Shemp now has a really hurtful look on his face and is asking them in a really winy voice}: "Oh, why, do I have to take piano lessons?"

LARRY to SHEMP: {As Larry is now sitting Shemp back in front of the piano with a carrying look on his face and is saying to Shemp in a carrying voice}: "You know, it's Doctor's orders, it's good for your nerves!"

MOE to SHEMP: {As Moe is standing in front of the piano with his right hand resting on the piano and his left one on his waist and is looking at Shempwith a serious look and saying to Shemp in a mischievous voice}: "Now, go on, practise like the teacher showed you, and if you're a good boy we're gonna give you some C-A-N-D-Y!"

SHEMP to MOE: {As Shemp is sitting at the piano and has a mischievous look on his face and is stating back to Moe in a very mischievous voice}: "Oh, you know, I don't smoke!"

Here we are seeing Larry and Moe both with disgusted looks and are ripping their hair out of their heads.

MOE to SHEMP: {As Moe is now waving his right hand at Shemp in disgust and is saying to him in a really disgusted voice}: "Oh, go on, practise!"

Moe and Larry are now walking away in utter disgust to leave Shemp alone so he can complete his practising chores.

We are now seeing Shemp as he is now sitting in front of the piano as he is now clasping his hands together and cracking his knuckles in a state of getting ready to practise as he has now bitten off a finger nail and has spit it out as we are hearing it hit loudly against a metal pot.

Shemp has now one last time cracked his knuckles as he is now commencing to practise.

We are now seeing Shemp with a really happy look on his face as he is now taking his index fingers and is playing the scales.

As Shemp was smiling happily, and playing his scales he was now once again having one of his dilutional spells as he is now seeing an "EXTRA PAIR OF HANDS" practising along with him.

SHEMP to MOE and LARRY: {As Shemp is still now having his spastic attack with a really scared look on his face as he is shouting to them in a horrible state of fear and panic}: "Moe, Larry, Larry, Moe!"

We are now seeing Moe and Larry getting up quickly off of the davenport that they were sitting on with really petrified looks of fear and panic on their faces as they are now running over to help out the spasticking Shemp.

SHEMP to MOE and LARRY: {As Shemp is now pointing to the piano and is saying to them in a crying and panicking voice}: "Oh, oh, look, I got two left hands. That's funn, I could of sworn I had two left hands!"

Here we are seeing Larry with his hands on Shemp's shoulders trying to comfort him as Larry and Moe are looking at Shemp with really carrying looks. As Shemp was using a panicking and crying voice we see Moe spinning a finger at the side of his head as he is signalling to Larry that Shemp is once again totally "OFF OF HIS ROCKER!"

MOE to SHEMP: {As Moe is saying to Shemp in a really carrying and cnsoling voice}: "Now, take it easy kid, don't get yourself all excited, just keep right on practising."

SHEMP to MOE: {As Shemp still has his hands raised in the aire and a really panicking look on his face as he is stating to Moe in a horrible panicking voice}: "All right!"

We are now seeing Moe and Larry walking back to the davenport shaking their heads in utter disgust and frustration and really hurt looks on their faces.

SHEMP to HIMSELF: {As he is waving his hands to and fro with a really disgusted look on his face and is saying to himself}: "My own hands!"

Now we are seeing Shemp at first biting his left hand and then taking his right hand and hitting his left one with it to make sure they are really his own hands as he is now yeowlling loudly in pain; "Ouch-ouch-ouch-ouch, oh, and it's mine!"

We are now seeing the really terrified Shemp looking underneath the piano and all around him to make sure that there are no "LITTLE SPACE CREATURES!" around to bother his practising chores as he is now happy and is now using his full hands one at each end of the piano as he has a really happy look on his face as he is now once again playing the scales.

Here we go again, round two, as poor Shemp is now back to having another one of his dilutional spells as we are now seeing a "SECOND SET OF BIG HANDS" playing the same scales as Shemp in the centre of the piano keys.

Shemp was playing the scales and the "SECOND BIG SET OF HANDS" was playing "BOOGIE-WOOGIE" music. Shemp is not at first thinking it is him playing the music as he is now snapping his fingers in time to the music and is saying in a happy voice: "Hey, hey, routte-toot; routte-toot; routte-toot; routte-toot; toot-toot-toot-toot; eeepa-eeepa-eeepa-eeepa; yepha-yepha-yepha-yepha; beeba-beeba-beeba-beeba; geepa-geepa-geepa-geepa; yepha-yepha-yepha-yepha."

Now Shemp is coming to the realisation that it is not himself but his "SECOND SET OF HANDS" doing the playing as Shemp is now looking at his own hands with a bug-eyed and panicking look.

Shemp is now looking down at the piano keys as he is now grabbing at the "IMAGINARY SET OF HANDS" in fear and is now grabbing them off of the piano keys as he is now making them clap one another as we are seeing the "SECOND PAIR OF HANDS" coming off of the keys and now twiddlling it's thumbs, as Shemp has a really bug-eyed and freaked out look on his face.

Shemp is now taking the "IMAGINARY SET OF SECOND HANDS" and is wickedly smashing the piano key cover on them and into the keyboard in a state of fear and panic.

SHEMP to the SECOND SET OF PRETEND HANDS: {As Shemp is so spasticked out and is now grabbing the keyboard lid once again and is shouting to them in utter fear and panic}: "I'll fix you!" {Right here we are now seeing Shemp with a really horrible look of pain on his face as he has now again slammed the keyboard lid on his own hands instead and not the "IMAGINARY SET."

Shemp is now yelling loudly in a state of pain as he is now lifting back up the cover off of his own hands; "Yeowha-yeowha-yeowha-yeowha-yeowha-yeowha-yeowha-yeowha-yeowha-yeowha; ooowha-ooowha-ooowha-ooowha-ooowha-ooowha-ooowha-ooowha-ooowha-ooowha; oooh-oooh-oooh-oooh-oooh-oooh-oooh-oooh-oooh-oooh; yeeeowha-yeeeowha-yeeeowha-yeeeowha-yeeeowha-yeeowha-yeeeowh-yeeeowha-yeeowha-yeeeowha!"

Shemp has now forgotten all about his pain as he is sitting there at the piano finishing up rubbing his sore hands as we are now seeing just "TWO INDEX FINGERS" from the "MYSTERY HANDS" on the piano playing the scales.

Poor Shemp is now in a really horrible dilutional and spastic and hallucigenic state that he is now getting up from the piano in a horrible state of panic as he is now running around in circles and is shouting spastickally.

Moe is now removing a box from his face that at one time was a really lovely looking chocolate cake as we are now seeing the stately gentleman wearing chocolate icing all on his face.

The stately gentleman now has a really disgusted look on his face as he is now taking his hand and is wipping chocolate icing from his face and is now tossing it into Moe's face.

MOE to THE STATELY GENTLEMAN: {As Moe is looking at him madly and is stating to him in a mad voice as Moe is now wearing chocolate icing}: "Now, take it easy!"

We are now seeing a second cake making its way to Larry's face as Larry is now removing it and is wipping vanilla icing from his face in disgust.

STATELY GENTLEMAN to MOE: {As he is now making a fist and is getting ready to smack Moe in the face and is yelling at him disgustedly}: "Why, you!"

Just as the stately gentleman was getting ready to sock Moe in his kisser Larry is now standing up and getting his kisser creamated instead. Larry is now falling back the the floor of the telephone booth in thorough pain.

MOE to THE STATELY GENTLEMAN: {As Moe is still in the process of prying him off of Shemp is saying to him in a really disgusted voice}: "Easy, all right now, all right take it easy, a wiseguy now, a wiseguy, take it easy!"

We are now tempoarily outside of the telephone booth in the main corridour as we are now seeing the stately gentleman beating up on Shemp so hard that he is now causing the telephone booth to rock from side to side as it is now falling flat to the floor by the left wall.

As the telephone booth was falling to the ground we were hearing everyone yelling in panic, 'yeowha-yeowha-yeowha-yeowha-yeowha; aaaaaha-aaaaaha-aaaaaha-aaaaaha-aaaaaha.' The telephone booth is now on its side as we are now seeing Shemp opening the door and getting out, as he is being followed by his partners Larry and Moe; {As Moe and Larry are shouting in disgust" 'oooowha-oooowha-oooowha-oooowha-oooowa,' let's get outta here."

We are now back inside of the telephone booth as we are now seeing the stately gentleman laying on the floor moaning in pain as he now has a totally busted telephon sitting on top of him.

We are now back on Shemp, Larry, and Moe as they are slightly swaying from side to side regaining their ba-lance with really hurt looks on their faces.

MOE to SHEMP and LARRY: {As Moe is now wipping some telephone parts from his face ans is stating to them in a painful voice}: "My, goodness!"

We are now getting a close-up on Shemp as he has now swallowed the entire collection of nickles from the change box on the telephone as he is coughing a couple of times and is now smacking himself on the back and is now dropping nickles out of his mouth.

SHEMP to HIMSELF: {As he now has a really happy look on his face as he is saying in a really happy voice}: "N-I-C-K-L-E-S, I hit the jackpot, haaha-haaha-haaha-haaha-haaha-haaha-haaha-haaha-haaha-haaha-haaha-haaha."

As Shemp was now over joyed about his riches has now placed the nickles in his right suit jacket pocket. All the while that Moe, Larry, and Shemp were regaining their composures we were still seeing the stately gentleman in the telephone booth moaning and groaning in both pain and disgust.

We are now seeing Shemp looking over at the telephone booth and is flinching a tad in pain as we are now seeing the stately gentleman with a really whipped puppy look on his face as he is now raising his head out of the telephone booth as he now has the dialing mechanism hanging out of his mouth.

The stately gentleman is still moaning in pain as he is laying his head against the side of the telephone booth as we are seeing Moe walking over to him and completing his telephone call in total mischief as he has now dialed the operator as she is now saying in a really robotic-like sounding voice. "You have the wrong number." Larry, Moe, and Shemp are now flinching in fear as the telephone has now spoken back to them. We are now seeing Moe, Larry, and Shemp running wildly from the beyond the enth-degree mad stately gentleman and the totally "HAUNTED" telephone.

It is now the "DAY OF THE WEDDING WITH SHEMP AND {UGLY} NORA", at Moe, Larry, and Shemp's flat, they are dressed in penguin tailed tuxedos with white carnation boutineers as they are now chug-a-lugging down a bottle of champagne as they are now singing in unison, in Barber Shoppe quartette style of singing:

"OH NORA!" BY: SHEMP, MOE, AND LARRY: {START}:

"Oh Nora, Nora, {here Shemp solo as Moe and Larry are humming}. today I'll marry Nora, cuz I'm so in love with, {here it is now all three}: "Nooooora!.

"OH NORA!" BY: SHEMP, MOE, AND LARRY: {ENDING}:

Here we are now seeing them clinking their champagne glasses together in a toast of glee? to Shemp marrying Nora? They are now laughing gleefully as ther are now guzzling down their glasses of champagne, {Yes, Shemp is still thinking that he is going to wed the "BEAUTIFUL NORA" as Larry and Moe knows it's gonna be the "HEDIOUS NORA."

Shemp is now flinching a tad in a state of fear as Moe and Larry are looking at him in fear thinking that he might be having another one of dilutional spells. We are now hearing a rapping sound on their front door.

SHEMP to MOE and LARRY: {As Shemp is now in a total state of fear as he is saying to them in a panicking voice}: "That's her!"

We are now seeing Shemp, Larry, and Moe running up to the door to let her in. Shemp is now opening the door to let her in.

We are now seeing Nora waving at Shemp as she is flashing him a mainly toothless, decayed smile. We are now seeing Moe and Larry standing in the background with their eyes shut and really horrible looks of fear on their faces, as they are feeling sorry for Shemp at what he is about to marry, because Shemp still does not know that she is "HEDIOUS BEYOND NO END!"

We are now hearing Shemp and Nora having a majour kiss fest as Shemp is thinking it is the "LOVELY NORA."

We are now learning that "NORA'S FATHER"; {VERNON DENT}; is the stately gentleman who was involved in the telephone fiasco with them the other day.

Nora has now opened the door to let Papa in as he is now smiling sweetly to her as he is now noticing Moe, Larry, and Shemp and is standing there glaring at them bug-eyed, evilly; {He is dressed in a dark bleu suit, white dress shirt, bleu tie with two huge white interlocking circles on it, a decorative handkerchief in his upper little suit pocket, white carnation boutineer as he is wearing a white derby style of a hat.

We are now seeing Moe, Shemp, and Larry with really scared looks on their faces as they are waving their hands at him in fear as they are stating in unison fear as they are backing away from him,' Yeeenhaaa-yeeenhaaa-yeeenha-yeeenha-yeeenha.'

What is there to be said that hasn't already. Just about every thing in this short works. Nora, old mackerel, Shemp guzzling down his liquid medicine, Emil Sitka, the pills, the piano lesson, and the phone booth scene. I could go on and on. Definitely in my top 5 of Shemp shorts.

I really like the part where they sing in their barbarshop harmony. Yet another example of how multi-talented they were. This one is very funny. Shemp playing the piano was very bizarre and surreal. When Larry was retired, he use to make personal apperances, mostly at high schools where he would show some Stooge films. Since he was wheelchair-bound he needed someone to acompany him, and Babe London (Nora) usually did. It would have been great to have been there, wouldn't it?

Emil Sitka's portrayal as the Doctor with the funny glasses and the gang in the phonebooth with great stooge foil Vernon Dent is as good as it gets. By the way, all of the phone booths in my part of the world are disappearing!.....oh cmon guys, i want my Nora!

Nora, oh lovely Nora. The boys were certainly in top form here. I haven't seen this one in ages. I believe I will order this on DVD ASAP. When Shemp is bopping along to the music that is being made by his "extra" hands, it kills me every time. I think my boys will like this one. 4 pokes for this one!

Amen to what everyone is saying. This is hardcore Stooges at their best! One little scene that really grabs me everytime is when Shemp flips out after seeing all the hands playing the piano and crashing the key-cover down on his fingers. While Moe and Larry try to comfort and restain him, Shemp suddenly starts hollering--out of the blue-- that Nora will forget him and that she'll probably call him "stumpy"! While out and out hilarious, doesn't this scene feel, for a second, startlingly "real"? Just a second of real drama where you actually feel sorry for poor Shemp. Oh well, maybe I'm seeing too much into it. It just grabs me that way!

This is a classic, in the Top 5 for Shemp shorts and one of the best Stooge shorts period. Don't want to repeat what many have said already but it's just so damn funny. Glad I have this one in my collection.4 Pokes, A+

Jules White was in a slump in 1950 and early 1951, but he made a big comeback with this short. Probably the best Shemp film directed by Jules. It's excellent and one my favorites with Shemp. Plenty of hilarious scenes, and the phone booth scene here is up there with BRIDELESS GROOM's phone booth scene.

Very, very funny entry, largely thanks to Shemp's performance who proves in comedies like this that he can own a short much like his brother Curly frequently did.The only scene I squirm in is the elongated sequence in the phone booth where Larry suffers some unusually cruel and messy treatment.

I'm not the one who wants to point fingers, but I think I might know who's behind this whole Missing 60 crap. It might be non other than Jean DeRita, Curly-Joe's wife who currently is the president of Comedy III. I hope it's not, though.

This short will knock you out, and I don't mean with sleeping pills. Why is Shemp picking up a ceramic marlin (not a mackerel) by the beak and saying "Goodbye, ol' mackerel" so funny? Probably because Shemp Howard was a comic genius, but I mean other than that... opinions, guys and gals?

BJR isn't kidding when he says there is a violent gag in this worthyof comparison to THEY STOOGE TO CONGA. Moe takes a light bulb,places it in Vernon Dent's mouth, and hits him from above and belowto break it! ROFL. The only Stooge film with nearly as many pills down the hatch is IDIOTS DELUXE (Moe is the sick man in that one).As stated in most of the above posts, this is one of the all-time greatShemp shorts...topped only by BRIDELESS GROOM, WHO DONE ITand MAYBE one or two others. Favorite scene is probably the phonebooth scene with Vernon Dent...Larry's reactions to being doused witheggs, milk and a cake are priceless. Shemp is superb as the mentalpatient suffering from delusions - it's nice to see he is seemingly curedat the very end as evidenced by his cry to Moe and Larry to save himfrom marrying the "lovely" Nora!4 pokes rating

Hilarious, classic Shemp short. You're a knucklehead if you don't own the Dopey Dicks video (which contains this and one other classic "missing 60" short), so go buy it now! BTW, this contains a gag in the "telephone booth scene" that ranks up there with the climbing spike fiasco from They Stooge To Conga (1943) in violence and pure evil (hint: Vernon Dent is the victim of this awful, yet hysterical gag!). Highlights:-- Phone Booth Scene-- Shemp playing the piano-- Moe trying to get Shemp to swallow the pill (Moe's exaspirated facial expressions are absolutely priceless)Grade: ARating: 9/10Moe: "Oh, boxcars wasn't good enough for you, eh?"Curly: "I wouldn't know; I'm a stowaway!"Moe: "Well stow THIS away..." *punch* "Get out!"

Finally got the video. Anyway, SCRAMBLED BRAINS is the best! Shemp, Larry, and Moe are so funny in this. Those 'extra' hands Shemp had while playing the piano were hilarious, yet sort of scary when the fingers 'played' by themselves. Nora was scary! No, really. Being a feminist, I usually don't like insulting women because of their looks, but Nora, Nora, what can you say about Nora. The Stooges singing was cute and sort of sweet. The phone booth scene can never, will never, be duplicated. I once did what Shemp did with those sleeping pills. That little girl was cute. At first, I didn't see the point of having her there, she didn't do anything but stand around, but after a few viewings, I saw that she was there because of her doll. Who was she, anyway? The hipmnosis was cute and the doctor was funny. I bet that doctor could hardly see anything. One of the best Shemp shorts, ever!Edited by - Nicole on 11/13/2001 8:46:23 PM

I agree w/ Stooge, this short is an absolute classic. I love the telephone booth scene. It was hilarious when the socked Vernon Dent in the stomach and bopped him on the nose countless times and Moe smashed a bulb in his mouth and Larry got covered in cake, milk, and eggs. Hilarious!

The best stooge short ever, in my opinion. The piano hallucination part is some of their finest work, and so is the telephone booth fight.4 pokesEdited by - Mike Holme on 10/1/2001 1:39:10 AM
