  • Episode Description
  • The Ricardos and Mertzes need to return to the U.S. by plane instead of ship. The 60-pound-per-person baggage limit taxes Lucy's ingenuity: she has bought lots of clothes and souvenirs, including a 30-pound cheese. She boards the plane wearing all the clothes at once and carrying the cheese as a "baby."

    Notes (3)

    • Guest star Mary Jane Croft loves this episode.

    • The idea for Lucy bringing home the cheese on the plane came from Bob Carroll, Jr. As he was going through customs, a man in front of him carried a 20lb. wheel of cheese. The customs officials cut the cheese because they thought the man was smuggling jewels.

    • This is the final episode produced by Jess Oppenheimer. He would leave Desilu Productions to work for NBC.
