Log
00:00 - Laurel arrives at the hospital to visit Hardy, bringing hard boiled eggs and nuts. Laurel eats his egg in silence before spilling water on Hardy. 06:50 - The doctor arrives and Laurel messes with the wires that are suspending Hardy’s leg. The doctor ends up hanging out the window, while Hardy flails about above the bed. Once the bed is broken, the doctor tells them to get out. 11:10 - Laurel tries to get Hardy’s pants on over his cast, cutting them to make them fit. Another man arrives, laughing crazily as he prepares to leave. They realize Laurel had switched their pants. Laurel sits on a syringe full of sedative, and the nurses laugh about his misfortune. 14:42-18:46 - Outside, Hardy tries to drive as Laurel yawns. When that proves impossible, Laurel gets into the drivers seat. They swerve around against a backdrop of heavy traffic before getting into an accident.
