  • Episode Description
  • A shy young teenager named Peggy has a major crush on Ricky. Ricky, however, is tired of all the "attention" that this girl is giving him, so asks Lucy to have a talk with her. During their conversation, Lucy asks Peggy to think of some other boys her own age that she might like to go out with instead. Peggy, it seems, also likes a boy named Arthur Morton. Unfortunately, Arthur is painfully shy and cannot dance, so Lucy volunteers to give him a dance lesson, but then Arthur becomes infatuated with Lucy! To get the two off their backs, Lucy and Ricky come up with a solution: they will dress up and act like 90 year-olds, and scare their "young fans" back to reality.moreless

Arthur: I said I still love you! Lucy: Oh yes. Uh, it sure does. Aruthur: No. I said I still love you! Lucy: Oh no. Oh no, thanks. Never touch the stuff. Ricky: Peggy, please keep jiggling! Please!
