Help! I can't remember the name of the Abbott and Costello movie that had the skit about formaldehyde. It went something like: Abbott:"Here, take this bottle and give it to Mal and tell him to hide it." Costello: "What's in the bottle?" Abbott: "Formaldehyde." Costello: "I know its for Mal to hide, but what's in the bottle?"

The skit sounds familiar to me, but I don't think it is from any of their films. There was a TV series in 1972 called The Kopycats, where impressionists Rich Little and Joe Baker did a few Abbott and Costello-like routines; perhaps that's where you (and I) heard this one.

Interesting! I remember The Kopycats; it could well be that I am remembering a skit from that show. The funny thing is, when I Googled to find out about this skit, I found instances in tech forums where people referred to "the Abbott and Costello Formaldehyde routine."
