Nothing But Trouble (1944) Poster

Stan Laurel: Stan



  • Mrs. Elvira Hawkley : I thought a little spot of this might refresh you before taking up your new duties. It's Chateauneuf 1924.

    Stan : Gee, that's pretty old. Haven't you got anything new?

  • Oliver : Come Stanley, let no one say that we were afraid to die.

    Stan : I don't care who says it.

  • Oliver : I don't think there's a job open in this whole country.

    Stan : Say, why don't we try some other country?

    Oliver : Stanley, I think you've got a good idea.

  • French Restaurateur : [scolding in French]  ... Un Bifteck à la Olivier! Allez!

    Stan : What'd he say?

    Oliver : You heard what he said.

    Stan : I heard what he said but I didn't hear what he meant.

    Oliver : He simply said that he accepts our resignation.

  • Oliver : Yonder she lies, Stanley. The good old USA!

    Stan : Gee, I'm glad to be back.

    Ocean Liner Passenger : I'll bet you are. What did the Japs do when they took you prisoner?

    Oliver : It was most humiliating. They forced us to prepare dinner. My masterpiece: Steak à la Oliver.

    Ocean Liner Passenger : Gee, that was tough.

    Oliver : Tough? My masterpiece? I beg your pardon!

    Stan : After they finished eating it, they told us to please go on home.

    Oliver : Yes, it seems that they preferred some dish of their own. I think they called it: Hara-Kiri.

  • King Christopher : You're awfully kind.

    Oliver : Well, we just like to see kids have fun.

    Stan : Yeah, we think kids are nice.

    King Christopher : And I think you're swell!

  • Oliver : Stanley, we've got to uphold the rights of human beings. That beautiful sirloin steak is enough for at least four people.

    Stan : And he's hoarding it.

    Oliver : Mrs. Hawkley needs it more than that lion. We'll do it!

    Stan : You're right, Ollie. Ladies first, I always say.

    Oliver : Stanley, get the meat.

    Stan : You mean - me get the meat?

    Oliver : Of course! Reach in and take it! Well, there's nothing to it. All you have to do is look the lion straight in the eye. Lions are afraid of that. I - I read that in a book.

    Stan : But, did the lion read the book?

    Oliver : No. Don't annoy me with trifles. Hurry!

    Stan : Are you sure he'll be frightened?

    Oliver : One look at you and he'll be terrified! - - - Did you look him in the eye?

    Stan : Yeah, but, something must have gone wrong. I got frightened.

    Oliver : Oh, I can't depend upon you to do anything!

  • Oliver : I have it! I'll decoy him away from the meat, you grab it. I'll pretend that I'm another lion.

    [Ollie roars] 

    Stan : It's working! Pretend you're a lady lion.

    [Ollie gives a high-pitched roar] 

  • Oliver : Now, I've got to think of another idea.

    Stan : What are you going to do now?

    Oliver : I'm going to tickle him. That'll attract him away from the steak. Then, you snatch it.

    Stan : Suppose he's not ticklish?

    Oliver : All lion's are ticklish! Gootchi-gootchi-gootchi-gootchi!

    Stan : Why don't you try and find his funny bone?

    Oliver : Gootchi-gootchi-gootchi! Gootchi! Gootchi-gootchi! See, he's laughing! Gootchi-gootchi-gootchi-gootchi-goo!

    Stan : Don't look like a laugh to me.

  • Oliver : I can't understand why my Mock Turtle Soup à la Hardy isn't done yet?

    Stan : Well, you know how slow those turtles are.

  • Oliver : Stanley, at times you are most trying.

    Stan : Well, you can't blame me for trying.

  • Stan : [after answering the door]  There's a guy by the name of Mr. Ronetz. He wants to talk to a Mr. Highness.

    Prince Saul : Oh, that's my Secretary. Would you pardon me a moment?

    Mrs. Elvira Hawkley : Oh, certainly.

  • King Christopher : You know, Mr. Stanley, Mr. Oliver, this has been the happiest day of my life!

    Oliver : Look, Chris, you don't have to say Mr. to us.

    Stan : Of course not. Just call us Stan and Ollie.

    Oliver : After all, we're pals.

  • Stan : Chris, you ain't a King?

    King Christopher : I - I should have told you.

    Oliver : Your Majesty.


    Stan : Your Majesty.


  • Prince Saul : His Majesty will be pleased to grant you an audience at a later time.

    Stan : Oh, sure, Chris.

    Oliver : Thank you, your Majesty.

    Stan : Mr. King, Chris.

  • Mrs. Elvira Hawkley : There you are, Stanley. Oh, you pixie, you. After all this - excitement, I'm sure you'll be glad to come back and work at our little house, won't you?

    Stan : No, ma'am.
