Stan promptly gives Ollie a big hug. Cut to End Title.
Ollie having a relatively normal, sympathetic and supportive wife in Hog Wild is rather nice to see, considering that his on-screen wives are usually either bimbos or shrews. This was actually one of the things that made this particular short stand out to a lot of fans.
Similarly, Ollie's wife in Sons of the Desert is genuinely worried about him when he (supposedly) died when the liner sank, although she chucks every plate, dish and pot in the house at him after he confesses.
Laurel's wife in the same film is excellent as well-she understands her husband's intellectual issues, but appreciates his decency and honesty.
In Two Tars, the girlfriends being supportive of Stan and Ollie to the very end is just sweet to watch.
In The Music Box, the Professor is raging at Stan and Ollie, screeching that he detests pianos, and hacking it to pieces with an axe. Then his wife comes in and starts sobbing that she only bought it for him to surprise it on his birthday. He eventually cheers up and forgives them. Until he has to sign the cheque, that is.
It's happy to see Ollie and Stan being so cheerful in the beginning of Busy Bodies, and not fighting for once.
A meta-example: After many years of unhappy divorces, Stan finally married Ida Raphael and Ollie married Lucille Jones, who stayed by them for the rest of their lives. Ida even told reporters that there would be no more divorces for Stan. They also had happy family lives.
