The remaining four passengers sat on for a while, until a solemn-looking man in the corner, who, from his dress and general appearance, seemed to belong to the undertaker class, said it put him in mind of dead baby; and the other three passengers tried to get out of the door at the same time, and hurt themselves.

The above extract is from from Jerome K. Jerome's novel Three Men in a boat. This incident describes the cheese episode. Kindly tell me the meaning of the italicized phrase.
