Stan: You know what? I think we’ve given that deed to the wrong woman. That’s the first mistake we’ve made since that guy sold us the Brooklyn Bridge.
Ollie: Oh, buying that bridge was no mistake. That’s gonna be worth a lot of money to us someday!
Stan: Well, maybe you’re right. We’d better go and get the deed.
Ollie: Say! Maybe they won’t give it back to us.
Stan: What do you mean they won’t give it back to us? We’ll get that deed, or I’ll eat your hat.
Ollie: That’s what I call determination!
Some time later...
Ollie: You said that if we didn’t get the deed that you’d eat my hat.
Stan: Oh, now you’re taking me illiterally.
Ollie: Nevertheless, I’m going to teach you not to make rash promises. Eat the hat...
Stan: (Crying) I’ve never eaten a hat before.
(Bites, chews, gulps, cries...Considers the taste...Tucks a kerchief into his collar...Salts the hat...Ollie snatches the hat back and furtively takes a nibble. Grimaces, spits it out and puts the chomped hat back on his head)...
