  • Episode Description
  • Lucy talks Viv into dipping into her "nest egg" and buying a small restaurant that's for sale. Unable to attract even a single customer, they also fail miserably as a gypsy tea room and a Colonial American themed restaurant. Even so, Mr. Mooney becomes interested in being a partner when he learns of a new highway's being built nearby.
