    • Ricky: There's no doubt about it. Metro just gave me the door and the fence. Fred: What's that? Ricky: Well, you ought to know. It's an American 'spression. Lucy: Are you sure that's an American 'spression? Ricky: Yeah. They gave me the door and the fence. Lucy: (realizing what Ricky meant) Oh, they gave you the gate!

    • (Ethel reminding Fred to change his handwriting) Fred: I did change my handwriting. Look. (showing Ethel one of his letters) I wrote the last hundred with my left. Ethel: Your left what? Foot?

    • Ricky: Maybe they'll use me in one of the Marx Brothers' pictures - Chico, Harpo, Groucho and Floppo.

    Notes (1)

    • Dore Schary was to portray himself in this episode, but he had to have some surgery done at the last minute. Vivian Vance's third husband, Phil Ober, plays him instead. Schary then told Ober that he did an excellent job playing him.

    • Lucy's mother says that she never heard of the producer Dore Schary, but in episode 110 she had mentioned she wanted to bring her book manuscript right to him.
