  • Episode Description
  • Harry Bailey, an agent of Ricky's, told the Ricardos that they can use his summer home for a vacation. But he also promises actors Ida Lupino and Howard Duff the same thing. Both the couples arrive at the cabin not knowing at first that the others are there. After the couples both decide to stay, the wives brew up a plan to spend more time with their husbands, who are more interesting in fishing than bonding.moreless

    • (After Lucy and Ida are unsuccessful at getting Ricky and Howard to pay more attention to them) Ida: Shall we? Lucy: Why not? (the girls sit down at the table to play a card game) Ida: What'll we play? Lucy: (disgusted) What else? "Old Maid"!

    • (Lucy and Ida come out wearing fancy dresses and exotic perfume) Ida: Howie, baby. Howard: Hmm? Ida: I thought this evening, we'd take a moonlight boat ride. Howard: Sounds like a good idea. Ida: You really think so? Howard: Yeah. You two go ahead.

    • (Ida has come up with a scheme to help get Howard and Ricky to spend more time with them) Lucy: Ida, you may look like a movie star, but you think like a wife. (shakes hands with Ida)

    • (Ricky and Howard have left their wives to go fishing) Ida: And for this I got up at dawn. Lucy: I'm sorry if I seemed selfish, I mean, about not wanting you around. It's just that I was hoping to be alone with my husband. Ida: I understand, darling. I was to be alone, too. Lucy: Well, we're alone, all right!

    • Man at the Lodge: (to Ricky) I sure like the way you sing "Baby Lou."
