  • Lucy hires an English tutor so that Ricky won't give their yet-to-be-born baby bad speaking habits. The lessons are free, but Lucy does promise the tutor a payback: he'll get to sing at the Tropicana. Of course, Lucy neglects to tell Ricky this.

    • Lucy: What if our child asks us simple questions? Like (in child's voice) "Where does rain come from?" (in normal voice) "Where does rain come from? I don't know dear, your mommy's a dumbell."

    • Lucy: I would say okay, that's a swell way to get off to a lousy start!
