CHAPTER ONE: "THE ENGAGEMENT:"

This short starts off where we are in a city park on gorgeous Spring Day. The trees are in full leafing. The flowers are blooming a beautiful array of bright colours and the sun is high in the sky and shining brightly and beautifully and the birds are merrily chirping.

There are two young ladies each sitting on their own individual park benches. The lady on your left is a beautiful, refined young lady. The lady on your right is a cute, happy go-lucky young lady who is sitting on her bench, swinging her feet to and fro, backwards and forwards, crossing them in front of herself and swinging them behind herself and is snapping loudly on a gum stick and is reading a book entitled:

"HOW TO MAKE LOVE"
FOR 10 CENTS

We are now seeing a clip of the inside of her book where these two steps are shown:

1: "To attract the victims attention, always keep the love light shining in your eyes."
2: "When the victim approaches always drop your handkerchief to get his attention."

We are now on the face of Emmy, the cute yound lady with the book as she is now smiling in glee as she is happily reading her book. Emmy is now lowering her book and is batting her eyes in delight and glee as she is reading. She has now shaken her shoulders and cracked her back loudly as she is now sitting back in her bench reading her book and waving her feet back and forth and chewing on her gum stick.

Emmy now has a look of wonderment on her face as she is glaring at the beautiful lady who is sitting there reading a newspaper and has now dropped her handkerchief to the ground.

Quick glance on Emmy as she is sitting on her bench, holding her book and watching the beautiful lady.

The beautiful lady has now dropped her handkerchief and is acting like she doesn't know she did as she is sitting back in her bench and is still reading her newspaper.

We now see a young, good looking gentleman approaching her bench and is picking up her handkerchief.

YOUNG GENTLEMAN to the YOUNG LADY: (As he now has picked up her handkerchief and is politely removing his hat and says in a carrying manner): "I beg your pardon, did you drop this?"

YOUNG LADY to the YOUNG GENTLEMAN: (As she is looking at him nonchalantly as she takes the handkerchief from him and still glancing at her newspaper says): "Thank-you!"

YOUNG GENTLEMAN to the YOUNG LADY: (In a happy state replies): "You're welcome!"

YOUNG GENTLEMAN to the YOUNG LADY: (In a polite and carrying tone of voice as he is smiling at her says): "You look awfully lonesome here, how about a little walk?"

YOUNG LADY to the YOUNG GENTLEMAN: (As she is smiling happily and is getting up to go for her stroll says): "I'd love to!"

All the while that the refined lady and the good looking gentleman were engaged in their conversation, Emmy was sitting there watching them in a stat of joy as she now lets out a big sigh of happiness.

The refined lady has now taken the arm of the good looking gentleman and they are strolling away in happiness.

We are now back on Emmy where she is sitting on her bench and is smiling and sighing in total happiness about the refined lady and the good looking gentleman. As Emmy is sighing in delight about the lady and the gentleman she now does a double-take look as another gentleman appears.

We are now on Smokey Moe dressed in his fireman's uniform and is walking and skipping in a happy and gleeful mood. He goes to kick a piece of debris under the other ladies bench and on his first kick he misses it, now he goes to kick it again and he hits his foot hard on the bench. He now has rubbed his foot and is limping away in pain.

As Smokey Moe is coming closer to Emmy, we now see her frantically thumbing through her "Love Book" to see what she should do to get his attention. She now has found out what to do as she throws her book away over the back of the bench. She is now taking a handkerchief out of the front of her dress, she is now sitting on her bench trying to look dignified with her head cocked back, one arm on the back of the bench and her legs spread apart.

Emmy is now sitting there with a huge smile on her face holding onto her handkerchief. Smokey Moe is now walking passed her in a quick pace. She has now thrown her handkerchief out in front of his still supporting a huge smile to try and get his attention, hpoing he would pick it up and return it to her.

SMOKEY MOE to EMMY: (As she is sitting on the bench smiling gleefully and he is now turning around and giveing her a look of wonderment says): "I saw ya, you outta be ashamed of yourself, you want to start a forest fire? Come on, pick it up, pick it up!"

SMOKEY MOE to EMMY: (As he is straightening his jacket and hat and is looing at the handkerchief shouts to her once again in a gruff voice): "Pick it up, can't you respect a uniform?"

SMOKEY MOE to EMMY: (Emmy is now walking elegantly over to her handkerchief and is bending over to pick it up. He is looking at her madly and says to her as she is starting to walk away): "There is a time and place for everything, you know that, I get it!"

EMMY to SMOKEY MOE: (As she has now picked up her handkerchief and is strutting by Smokey Moe and is waving it in his face and is saying mischievously): "Yoo-hoo!"

EMMY to SMOKEY MOE: (As she is holding onto her handkerchief and is standing by his side smiling gleefully says to him in a sheepish voice): "Nice day!"

SMOKEY MOE to EMMY: (As he is giving her a look of wonder and responds to her in a questionable tone of voice): "Is it?"

EMMY to SMOKEY MOE: (As she is smiling happily and has now twirled around in happiness and gives him a little kick on his leg and falls into his ches and tickles his knees as she points to the park bench): "Nice quiet little spot for us!"

As Emmy is tickling Smokey Moe's knees, (it sounds like someone is playing a kids noisemaker), he is stomping up and down in ticklish madness and is pushing her away.

SMOKEY MOE to EMMY: (As he is shuffling backwards and is pushing her away in madness and has a mad sounding voice): "Cut that out, I know ya, I know ya!"

Emmy is now lifting up the hem of her dress and is showing Smokey Moe her thigh in a flirtatious state of mischief as she is saying 'yoo-hoo'. She is now twirling around her leg to be flirtatious, (sounds like someone is playing a xylophone).

SMOKEY MOE to EMMY: (As he is watching her twirling her leg flirtatiously says to her): "What's the matter, are you muscle bound, or have you got in grown heels?"

Emmy is now still flirting with Smokey Moe. She has now tickled his chin with her handkerchief and is smiling sweetly at him.

EMMY to SMOKEY MOE: (As she is sheepishly looking at him in glee and still flirting with him says): "You're a nice fireman, won't ya sit down?"

SMOKEY MOE to EMMY: (As he is looking at his watch and says to her in a happy voice as he is running over to the bench and is now sitting down): "I've got ten minutes to kill, why certainly!"

Smokey Moe is now sitting on the bench, and Emmy is standing by the bench with a sheepish look on her face.

SMOKEY MOE to EMMY: (As he is fixing his hat and says to her in a mischievous voice): "I suppose you want me to tell you the history of my life!"

As Smokey Moe is now starting to talk, we see Emmy taking a flying leap to land in his lap but she lands hard on the bench right by his side.

SMOKEY MOE to EMMY: (As he is moving away from her slightly): "Cut that out!"

Emmy is now getting up and is rubbing her leg in pain as she is now slightly limping to the back of the bench and is saying, 'Oooh, oooh, oooh, oooh, damn it'.!

SMOKEY MOE: (As he is straightening his hat and is watching her limp to the back of the bench says): "What is that, a chipmunk or something?"

Emmy is now climbing up to the bench over the back of it and is smiling happily and sheepishly as she is getting up on the bench and is now tickling Smokey Moe on the chin. Emmy is now playfully tickling Smokey Moe on his chin and is saying, 'Tickle-tickle-tickle, kitty-kitty-kitty'.

Smokey MOe has now reached over and tickled Emmy on her cheek and says, 'Tickle-tickle-tickle, kitty-kitty-kitty.'

Smokey Moe and Emmy are now playfully tickling each other and saying, 'tickle-tickle-tickle-tickle, kitty, kitty, kitty, kitty.' Smokey Moe is leaning backwards and then slightly forward and then falls on his knees while Emmy is leaning sideways on the bench and is laughing happily.

EMMY to SMOKEY MOE: (As she is now approaching him and says in a more quiet tone of voice as she is tickling his chin, tickle-tickle-tickle-tickle'.!

Smokey Moe is now approaching Emmy and is tickling her again on her chin. Emmy is now approaching Smokey Moe and is tickling him one last time and has her feet propped up on his chest as Smokey MOe is reaching over and giving her one last tickle as she is approaching the end on the bench and is now falling off on her head causing her to do a somersault.

Smokey Moe is still sitting on the bench and is now backing away from her as she is now standing up and looking away from her as she is now standing up and looking at him in a loving and flirtatious sort of manner as she is standing by his side smiling sheepishly and joyfully. Smokey Moe is now regaining his position on the park bench.

SMOKEY MOE to EMMY: (As he is pointing a finger and is starting to tell his life history once again): "Well, I'll tell you the history of my life, I was born right about there......"

As Smokey Moe was starting to tell her his life story, she once again takes a flying leap to land in his lap and as she is doing that she has now pushed Smokey Moe right off the bench onto his side. Emmy is now standing up and is holding her hands smiling sheepishly, but yet gleefully.

SMOKEY MOE to EMMY: (As he is now standing up and putting back on his hat and is now sitting back on the bench says): "Cut that, hey, cut it out will you lady?"

EMMY to SMOKEY MOE: (As Smokey MOe is now sitting back on the bench. Emmy is now climbing back up on the bench and is hunched over and is walking over towards Smokey Moe who is now looking away in a horrified state as she says to him with a look of determination on her face and is using a deep tone of voice): "I love you, I love you, I love you, I love!"

Smokey Moe is now laying on the bench looking up at Emmy with a really worried look on his face as she now has him by his shirt and is pinning him down with her foot.

EMMY to SMOKEY MOE: (As she now has him pinned down with her foot on the bench and is holding tightly to his shirt collar says): "You could learn to love me couldn't you?"

SMOKEY MOE to EMMY: (As Smokey Moe is laying on the bench pinned down with Emmy's foot and says in a total state of pain): "Not, without difficulty!"

EMMY to SMOKEY MOE: (As she still has her foot on his face and Smokey Moe has a hurt look on his face. She is shaking him by his shirt in madness while Smokey Moe is on the bench in pain): "You have no fire, you have no love in your heart!"

SMOKEY MOE to EMMY: (As he is still laying on the bench with a hurt look on his face as she still has her foot in his face): "How can I have fire in my heart, when you have your foot in my face?"

EMMY to SMOKEY MOE: (As she still has him pinned down in pain as she is rubbing his hair in a happy state says): "Oooh, oooh, I love you, I love you, I love you, I love you, I love you, I love!"

SMOKEY MOE to EMMY: (As he is still laying there in pain and is putting up his arm in defense as she is still rubbing his hair as he is trying to get loose): "Cut it out lady, what do you want to pick on me for?"

EMMY to SMOKEY MOE: (As she still has him pinned down and she has her hands on his shoulders says): "I want to get even with my sweetheart, 'Fire Eating Sam.'

{They just showed a picture of 'Fire Eating Sam', he is about 6' 2", wearing a fireman's uniform, holding onto his fireman's hat with the number one on it. He has a humongous sized axe in his right hand. He has a moustache and a giant mischievous smile on his face and he is going bald}.

SMOKEY MOE to EMMY: (Still pinned down on the bench and is looking at the picture of Fire Eating Sam and is now jumping up quickly and is shoving Emmy off of him and is shouting): "Fire Eating Sam, my worst enemy. I'd do anything to get even with him!"

Smokey Moe is now standing up in a state of furry as he is viciously ripping up the picture of Fire Eating Sam, and is stomping his feet madly while Emmy is standing behind him looking at him in a state or worry.

SMOKEY MOE to EMMY: (As he is turning around and is looking at her with a mad look on his face and says in a mad voice as he stomps up and dowm one last time in madness says): "Why, I'd even marry you!"

EMMY to SMOKEY MOE: (As she is standing there with a really happy look on her face and glee in her voice says): "Do you mean it?"

SMOKEY MOE to EMMY: (As he is looking at her in dismay and says in a gruff voice): "Mean every word of it!"

EMMY to SMOKEY MOE: (As she is smiling at him in happiness and is using hand gestures of joy and has joy in her voice says): "Then, we will marry in the little fire house around the corner!"

SMOKEY MOE to EMMY: (Smokey Moe is now giving Emmy a look of happiness and love as she is looking back at him in glee as they both hug one another and he and he joyfully smiles at her and pushed her back and states): "You're gonna become Mrs. Smokey Moe!"

Emmy is now holding her hands up in happiness and is giving him a look of kindness and love as she is now running up to meet Smokey Moe and give him a giant hug and he is now running to meet her and they miss each others arms and fall flat on the ground on their faces.

SMOKEY MOE to EMMY: (As he is getting up and is looking around for her says): "Here I am, Emmy over here!"

CHAPTER TWO: "THE WEDDING CEREMONY:"

It is now the day of Smokey Moe's and Emmy's wedding. It is a truly perfect, beautiful Spring day. We are now at the fire junction where we see the following sign on the main entrance door.

We are now inside of the fire junction where we see the firemen hustling and bustling around getting everything decorated for the wedding event. One of the firemen is standing on a ladder and is hanging some fire hoses from a chandelier along with a wedding bell.

We now see a beautiful white Arabian horse in his stall with a stable maiden brushing him as Fire Eating Sam is walking in a side door with a look of mischief on his face as he is picking off a garlic clove from a garlic stalk and is eatting it happily. The horse is looking at Fire Eating Sam and the horse flinches back and gasps in wonder as the horse now gets a whiff of the garlic.

FIRE EATING SAM to the HORSE: (As he is looking at the horse in madness and is breathing garlic breath on the horse): "Who did it."

We now see the poor horse neighing in a full state of panic as he has now gotten a full smell of the garlic and is not liking it. Fire Eating Sam is now in a full state of happiness as he gives the horse a smile of happiness and is happily walking away thoroughly enjoying his garlic snack.

We now see Emmy making her grandé entrance as she is smiling and skipping in joyfully with her flower boquet in front of her face as she does not see the fire hose in front of her and she now trips over it and embarrassingly goes crashing to the floor. The other firemen are shouting, 'hoo-ray'! Emmy has now awkwardly stood up as the firemen are shouting once again clapping their hands, "The Bride, hoo-ray!"

We are now on Fire Eating Sam and the Other Fireman as Sam is chomping his garlic and the Other Fireman is standing there flinching his head back and rubbing his face from the garlic. Along with the rest of the fireman and the wedding guests as Fire Eating Sam is furiously approaching Emmy smiling gleefully as she is looking at Sam with a look of a whipped puppy on her face.

FIRE EATING SAM to EMMY: (As he is happily chomping his garlic snack and is slapping the flowers and is looking at Emmy mischievously and Emmy is looking at him in madness says): "Eh, what harm is there in a little garlic?"

EMMY to GARLIC SAM: (As she is looking at him in a thorough state of madness and in a mad voice): There is no such thing as a little garlic!"

CHIEF NOZZLE: (In general conversation to the rest of the firemen and the wedding guests as he is looking around the fire junction in approval of eveything says): "Well, the flags are all up, the flowers ready, looks like we're all set. Let's start the ceremony!"

OTHER FIREMAN to FIRE CHIEF NOZZLE: (As the Other Fireman is approaching Chief Nozzle in a state of worry says): "Wait a minute Chier, we have no minister!"

CHIEF NOZZLE to the OTHER FIREMAN: (As Chief Nozzle is looking at the Other Fireman in wondernemt as he is holding his hands together and says in a happy and questionable voice): "No minister? what, that's all right, I'm the Justice Of The Peace, I'll marry them."

We now see Smokey Moe happily sliding down a fireman's pole on the way to his wedding dressed in a tuxedo with his fireman's cap and knee lenght rubber boots and his trousers rolled up.

EMMY to SMOKEY MOE: (As she is happily spreading her hands and is using a happy tone of voice): "Smokey!"

SMOKEY MOE to EMMY: (As he is now happily noticing her and is smiling from ear to ear as he is also spreading his arms and is using a happy voice): "Emmy!"

We now see Smokey Moe tripping over his boots as he is clumsily running over to give Emmy a giant kiss, but he has now missed her and has now give Fire Eating Sam a giant kiss.

EMMY to SMOKEY MOE: (As she is hugging him and is patting him on his head and is saying to him in a re-assuring voice): "That's all right you're all right!"

We now see one of the fireman approaching an older late 1800's to early 1900's style fire engine and is now blowing its whistle playing "It's A Hot Time In The Old Town Tonigh!" As a sign that the wedding ceremony is about to commence. Smokey Moe is awkwardly grabbing Emmy as she is slightly loosing her balance as he is leading her up to the front alter where Chief Nozzle is now ready to perform the ceremony.

As we now hear "Here Comes The Bride" playing and Emmy and Smokey Moe are happily marching up to the alter we now hear the telephone ringing. A fireman is now approaching the telephone and is answering it in a state of worry and dismay.

FIREMAN to the TELEPHONE: (As he is now answering it in a state of mischief): "Hello, hello, what, what, we're having a fire? I'm sorry we can't come to any fires today, no, we'll be glad to come some other day, what it's the Chief's house!"

As the fireman was taking the message about Chief Nozzle's house being on fire we now see Emmy and Smokey MOe and the wedding guests all happily gathered in front of the Chief as he is now happily and proudly conducting the ceremony.

FIRE CHIEF NOZZLE to the WEDDING GUESTS: (As the wedding guests are happily holding hands with one another. And he has noticed that they are holding hands says to them smiling): "No, no, not you, you two." (He is refering to Emmy and Smokey Moe).

We now see Chief Nozzle getting ready to read the wedding vows to Smokey Moe and Emmy as they are grabbing each others hands mischievously as Emmy and Smokey Moe are looking at Chief Nozzle in dazement.

CHIEF NOZZLE to SMOKEY MOE and EMMY: (In a very serious tone of voice as he is reading the vows): "Now, do......"

As Chief Nozzle was starting the reading of the vows we see the Other Fireman patting Chief Nozzle on the shoulder in a state of panic.

As Chief Nozzle is asking Smokey Moe these vows we see Smokey Moe, Emmy and Chief Nozzle looking at each other in a close group to be sure that Smokey Moe is understanding his vows. The Other Fireman is still persistantly tapping Chief Nozzle to get his attention.

CHIEF NOZZLE to EMMY: (As Chief Nozzle is now looking at Emmy in a serious manner asks her seriously): "Do you take this man to be your lawful wedded husband......"

One year has now passed since we were at that very memorable Wedding Ceremony at the fire junction. We now see Smokey Moe happily working on an invention of his called "FIRE PUTTER-OUTTER FORMULA." As we see Emmy sitting on the side of a chair happily working on her knitting project. She is now loosing her balance and has now dropped her knitting thread.

SMOKEY MOE to EMMY: (As he is now thoroughly mad and is shoving her down into her chair by her head says to her madly): "A Pekinese, get down there what do you mean? Oh, the boys, the beer!"

Smokey Moe is now running over to the telephone and is picking up the receiver and is calling back the fire junction to tell them to cancel the beer because he is not having a kid.

SMOKEY MOE to the TELEPHONE OPERATOR: (As he is shouting into the receiver in madness and is stomping his feet in madness): "Hello, hello, Belview 21084, yeah, come on make it snappy.

The beautiful white Arabian horsey is also standing there looking at Smokey Moe with a panicked look on his face.

We now see Fire Eating Sam laughing evily at the poor burning Smokey Moe. All the while that the burning out of control Smokey Moe was jumping up and down in pain was splashing his powder, (not really), out of the canister onto himself and wondering why his invention isn't working. It is because poor Smokey Moe, (not knowing what Fire Eating Sam had done) is throwing "Flashlight Powder" on himself instead.

As poor Smokey Moe is now totally on fire because of sprinkling "Flashlight Powder" on himself instead of his "Fire Putter-Outter Powder" is running around in circles shouting and screaming in a horrified state of panic and pain.

While the other firemen are now frantically panicking as they are now hitching up the horsey's to the two fire wagons. We now see two really beautiful 1900's style horse drawn wagons heading for the fire. One wagon is the fire truck and the other one is the hose wagon that reads "Hose Co."

We now hear the fire trucks drawing closer to her house as she is looking into the mirror and fixing up her hair and is dancing around gleefully with a huge smile on her face as she is clapping her hands in joy.

We now see one of the fire trucks passing by her at first as she is hanging out of her window and is yelling in a 'state of panic.' The horsey drawn hose truck has now noticed her and her 'cry' of panic as it comes to a screeching hault.

But due to the fact that the two water firemen have now upped the pressure too much Sam has now lost control of the hose and is now falling to the ground and is floating away on the hose back and forth across Smokey Moe's front yard being unable to control the hose.

A good effort. The fire putter-outer storyline was entertaining and their attempt to promote the product by burning down a room in their house was some kind of idea. This short got better as it went along, though there were no real bad parts.

I totally agree with cru3rdbari's comments about Daphne Pollard. With all the fuss that's made nowadays over the modestly talented Lucille Ball, here you get to see a REAL female slapstick comic, one who's not afraid of the true roughhouse stuff, and with a great sense of timing, too. If Lucy had been even half as willing as Daphne was to take hard pratfalls and mix it up with a male cast, she might have been twice as funny as she actually was. Shemp, already a practiced slapstick comedian with a lot of stage experience, almost takes a back seat to his energetic co-star here! She must have been a very small woman, too, since she only comes up to about Shemp's shoulder, and he was a short guy, like the other Howard brothers. Three pokes, and an extra half-poke for Shemp's fresh-garlic-chewing (yechhh!) rival, who blows the fumes in everybody's face.

I just got this DVD yesterday, and this is also the first Shemp solo that I have seen. I also have a new female idol: Daphne Pollard. I didnt know that females did hard-corps slapstick back then. Yeah, Lucy did slapstick, but not getting hit and giving flying body checks like this lady does! Plus, she gets to live out one of my fantasies: doing side-by-side slapstick with Shemp! (aha, all you perverts out there...). I have always been considered 'unfeminine' by doing activities I like (playing the drums, ice hockey), but admire women for doing things that they 'arent' supposed to do, and slapstick is certainly one of them. I have to find out more about Daphne! Anyhoo, the opening courtship scene on the bench is by far the best in the film. I even have a new quote from Shemp for my .sig: "How can I ignite the fire in my heart when youve got your foot in my face!" IMHO, this short should have ended after the wedding scene, and been a one-reeler. As for my first Shemp short: I liked it just fine!

Average Vitaphone effort, with its share of dud gags, but Shemp and Daphne again make an engaging team--their opening courtship sequence, with Daphne literally crawling all over Shemp on a park bench, is easily one of the highlights of these Vitaphone shorts. This scene has an ad-libb-y feel to it, and kind of seems out of place with the rest of the short, though.

Great short, the fire department is portrayed as a group of idiots. Kind of weird humor, but great!

Shemp plays Smokey Moe, the worst firefighter in the firehouse, who ends up marrying the girlfriend the girlfriend of his arch enemy Fire-Eater Sam just to spite him. Daphne Pollard plays Shemps wife, and this a wonderful short, some of Shemp's best work!
