    • (after Lucy accidentally breaks Harry's priceless vase, he refuses to get angry at her)
      Lucy: Can't you yell at me just a little?
      Harry: Lucille, as far as I'm concerned, it was an unfortunate accident, and I wish to forget the matter entirely (voice breaks) and never mention it again. (leaves office)
      Lucy: HARRY CARTER, I NEVER KNEW YOU COULD BE SO MEAN! (cries)

    Trivia (1)

    • Here's an interesting story about this episode. I was in 7th grade in a short time before this episode aired and saw my fellow art-class student and friend Lance Deverich/Racana attempting to make a pot on the potter's wheel in Roger Twedt's Art Class at Palm Valley in Palm Springs, CA. Lance had a crazy Einstein hair-cut and was generally unkempt with kooky habits. We were best friends during our time at P.V. So I framed the shot of him, director-style left/thumb right/forefinger and reversed, etc. and thought, this would be a good film for our film class. Later, we did this as "The Potter's Problem" which won the California Art Educator's Award and at which one of Lucy's writers saw the episode, turned it into this episode and made it more famous. Others on the team at Palm Valley: Roger Twedt (art director, and Lucy's teacher in the episode of Here's Lucy, my art teacher, now deceased, along with his beloved wife and my 4th grade teacher Grace Twedt), Mike Stern (a friend), and Craig Siva (another friend.) Anyway, you know the rest now. Stuart Cracraft P.S. I made a couple of pots in my life but always found it difficult. Now the most I do is watch them make pots at the Laguna Beach Sawdust Art Festival yearly. On another note, The Terminator series and some other James Cameron movies were produced by another Palm Valley graduate Gale Anne Hurd who was in a couple of classes ahead of me.
