    • Lucy: How about Philip if it's a boy Ricky: And Morris if it's a girl?

    • (discussing baby names) Lucy: Well, I'm not gonna settle on any old thing. I want the names to be unique and euphonious. Ricky: OK. Unique if it's a boy and Euphonious if it's a girl.

    • Fred: Oh boy, I love to dance, but I'm a little out of condition. Ethel: A little out of condition? He puffed so hard it's like dancing with a steam engine. Fred: Steam engines puff hard when they're pushing a heavy load.

    • Ethel: While you're at it, why don't you take another couple along with you...just to make it a happy foursome. Ricky: Do you have anyone in mind? Ethel: We'd love to!

    • Lucy: After the baby's born, I'll just be forgotten. Ethel: Oh, that's not true. Lucy: It is too true. I'll be just like a salmon. I'll swim upstream, spawn and never be heard from again.

    Notes (5)

    • Bennett Green (the waiter) was actually Desi Arnaz's stand-in on the show.

    • My Favorite Husband: The Christmas Stag

    • Mashed potatoes, gravy, and sardines were used for Lucy's pistachio hot fudge and sardine sundae. However because Lucille Ball hated sardines she threw up off stage after the scene was shot.

    • Music performed on this episode included "Cheek to Cheek".

    • At the end of this episode, Lucy sobs: "You don't care about little Bob or Madelyn." Madelyn Pugh and Bob Carrol, Jr. were two of the "I Love Lucy" script writers.
