  • Episode Description
  • Lucy literally blackmails Ricky into getting her a part in one of his guest appearances on television. He does get her a role -- as a bull. When Lucy is displeased with the turn of events, she transforms the bull's image from that of a snarling beast to a mincing creature resembling Elsie, the Borden Cow. Look for the classic scene where Lucy upstages Ricky in this episode.

  • Funny, but did they just have an old script left over from somewhere?

    • (laughing after learning that Lucy will play a bull) Fred: What's the matter? Ethel: Oh, boy! This is a switch! For once the bull'll be full of Lucy!

    • Lucy: (mocking Ricky) Haven't got enough 'sperience! I've been married to you longer than anybody!

    • Ricky: If you don't mind, I'll decide what we do in the show, all right? After all, blackmailers can't be shoosers. Lucy: I just wanna make sure you shoose something that shows me off.

    • Lucy: About the television. I have a question for you. Ricky: I'm pretty sure what it is and I have an answer for you. Lucy: Well, I'm pretty sure what your answer is, but let me ask it anyway. Ricky: All right. Lucy: Can I be on the show? Ricky: No. Lucy: Ten seconds! That's the fastest we've ever done it.

    • Ethel: Honestly, did you ever see anyone stick to an idea like Lucy? Fred: She's a regular human mustard plaster.
