  • Episode Description
  • The plumber Lucy calls to fix her kitchen sink is a dead ringer for Jack Benny. Just like Benny, he's a violinist, but his classical music career was ruined by his resemblance to the comedian. Lucy decides to help him out by introducing him on a local TV talent show--the same show she was kicked off of a week earlier because of the lousy dog act she presented.

  • Notes (1)

    • This is the first episode in which Vivian Vance does not appear. She was unhappy having to constantly commute to the West Coast just to play a supporting role. To help make her happy, she was given additional weeks off during the season so she wouldn't have to make the trip as often.

    Trivia (2)

    • So that the host won't recognize her from her previous show-destroying appearance, Lucy passes herself off as a dark-haired Italian floozy named Lucrecia Carmucci.

    • The name of the TV program Lucy and Harry Tuttle appear on is The Talent Discoverer's Show.
