Getting there is half the fun

In this 1923 short, Buster Keaton decides the best cure for a broken heart is a sailing trip around the world. Hilarity Ensues.

"The Love Nest" contains examples of:

  • Klingon Promotion: Subverted — after Buster (accidentally) sends the Captain overboard, he dons the captain's hat and starts issuing orders, but it turns out the Captain is not quite dead.
  • Water Is Air: Simultaneously played straight and subverted — Buster is able to walk into the water without any breathing gear and shoot a fish with an ordinary rifle, but the gunsmoke travels to the water's surface in a bubble.
