What was your favorite bit in this film? What should've been included?

My favorite bit, of course, is the classic "Who's on First" routine. (But whose dumb idea was it to play narration over part of it?)

My second favorite bit is the one with Margaret Hamilton and Lou creating effigies of each other and then sticking pins in them. Very funny.

Off-hand I can't think of a routine that definitely should have been included. There's a hilarious radio bit about a mudder and its fodder, but I don't know if Bud and Lou ever repeated it on film.

I didn't know until I got Chris' book on her dad that this film came out years after Lou had died. I loved the bit about the plumbing from In Society myself and how it leads to a flood.
