In The Three Stooges short "Disorder in the Court", Curly says something at the 9:15 mark and I have never been able to figure out what he says. The court clerk says "I'll sue you for this!". Then Moe says "Oh superstitious eh?". Then Curly who is off camera says something ... but what?

According to the transcript on threestooges.net, Curly said: "Oh, vici kid!"
LARRY: [picking up the toupee with the bow] Stand back, it's liable to bite ya.
[Moe grabs the toupee with his hands because he realizes it's not a tarantula after all]
MOE: Tarantula? Shot five holes in a divot. Get out. [slaps Larry in the head] Go on. [looks at the toupee] Wasted five good slugs in a---
[The court clerk walks up to Moe, grabs the toupee and puts it on his head]
COURT CLERK: I'll sue you for this.
MOE: Oh superstitious eh?
CURLY: Oh, vici kid!
JUDGE: Gentlemen, you must control your killing instincts. Proceed with the testimony please.
MOE: Proceed!

Vici kid was a fine soft leather used mainly for gloves and shoes. So apparently Curly was commenting on the fine, soft leathery quality of the court clerk's toupee.

Based on the transcript posted at threestooges.net, Curly's line, and
the proper spelling thereof, is "Oh, vici kid!"
Vici kid was a fine soft leather used mainly for gloves and shoes. So
apparently Curly was commenting on the fine, soft leathery quality of
the court clerk's toupee.
