    • (Ricky is about to leave to go to the basement with Fred to check the furnace) Lucy: Ricky! You're not gonna leave me at a time like this! When you come back I might be gone. Ricky: Well if you go, leave me a note and tell me where I can find my clean socks.

    • Ricky: (taking the phone from Lucy and hanging it up) Now look, honey. Calm down, will you? Let's talk this thing over. Now wait a minute. Lucy: A lot of talking you're gonna do with a silver wire wrapped around your neck!

    • Ricky: Now look, honey. Why would those people wanna give us a rub down? Lucy: (correcting Ricky) Rub us out!

    • Lucy: 10 o' clock in the living room and all's well! Ricky: 10 o' clock in the bedroom and all's well! Fred: 10 o' clock in the hallway and all's well! Ethel: (muffled) 10 o' clock in the kitchen and all's well! Lucy: Kitchen inspector, will you report to the living room? (Ethel enters with a turkey leg in one hand and her gun in the other) Ethel: Yes sir. Lucy: Ethel are you eating on duty? Ethel: No sir. Lucy: What's that? Ethel: Oh uh...well I'm not very good with a gun so I thought if somebody tried to sneak in the back door I'd beat them to death. Lucy: Ethel, I hope they get here before you eat your club away.
