Funny: The Dover Boys

  • Arguably the whole thing is one.
  • "Confound those Dover Boys! How I hate them!!"
    • "They drive me to DRINK!" Cue Dan drinking several shots in rapid succession, with the bartender taking one for himself.
    • "I hate TOM! I hate DICK! I hate LARRY!"
  • "Help, Tom! Help, Dick! HELP, LARRY!!"
  • Dan Backslide's No Indoor Voice takes the cake.
    • Or when he selectively turns it off,
      "Dear rich Dora Standpipe, HOW I LOVE HER... [beat] ... Father's money!"
  • "... and Larry, the youngest of the three jer- daaaaaah, brothers."
  • The uncompromising moral fortitude of the Dover Boys and Dora Standpipe consist solely of dramatically averting their gaze from a certain tavern of unsavory repute.
  • "The Dover Boys! Then Dora must be ALONE AND UN-PRO-TEC-TED!!!"
  • "Unhand her Dan Blackside! Unhand her Dan Blackside! Unhand her Dan Blackside!! Hey, we're in a rut!"
  • Throughout the short, an old guy in an Old-Timey Bathing Suit keeps showing up while "While Strolling Through the Park One Day" plays. In the end, he "saves" Dora Standpipe, and they walk off together toward the sunset.
  • The scout relaying Dora's predicament via flag signals...to another scout literally five feet away. And then when the message finally arrives to the Dover Boys via telegram, the message is simply just "HEEEEELP!"
