NEVER WEAKEN (1921):
Harold works in an office next to his girlfriend Mildred. He assumes they will be married, but overhears her talking to a man who says to her, "Of course, I will marry you." Distraught, he decides to commit suicide. Blindfolding himself, he sets up a gun, which will fire when he pulls a string attached to the trigger. But after putting on the blindfold, he accidentally knocks over a bulb which pops, and he assumes he has shot himself. At that moment, a girder from the next door construction site swings into his office, lifting him and his chair outside. Pulling off the blindfold, the first thing he sees is a sculpture high on his building which he takes to be an angel, and he assumes he is in Heaven.

SAFETY LAST (1923):
The film opens in 1922, with Harold Lloyd behind bars. His mother and his girlfriend, Mildred, are consoling him as a somber official and priest show up. The three of them walk toward what looks like a noose. It then becomes obvious they are at a train station and the "noose" is actually a trackside pickup hoop used by train crews to receive orders without stopping (the "prison bars" are merely those at the ticket counter). Harold promises to send for his girlfriend, so they can get married once he has "made it good" in the big city. He gets a job as a salesclerk at the De Vore Department Store, where he has to pull various stunts to get out of trouble with the picky and arrogantly self-important head floorwalker, Mr. Stubbs.
