  • I first saw this episode when it originally aired on January 1, 1968. I was almost 9 years old. The funniest clips were - Lucy walking on stilts to get into the bunk bed - Installing a shower - Putting up a TV antenna. A wonderful collection of clips.

    • Lucy: I was trying to say the nicest thing possible to the nicest gal I know. Viv: Oh, Lucy, I know what you mean. And I feel exactly the same way about you. Lucy: I'm glad you do. And even though we live on opposite sides of the country, I'll always feel very close to you. Viv: I feel the same way exactly.

    Notes (2)

    • In leiu of an official "final episode", Lucille opted to do a clip show during this second half of the final season. Almost all the scenes, highlighting Lucy and Viv's misadventures, are from the first season.

    • During the filming of this episode, Vivian Vance improvised one of her lines by responding "Sensible My Ass!" to Lucy's claim that she had a sensible reason for all the crazy things she's ever done. Although the take wasn't used, it can be seen on one of the "Lucy Blooper Reels" featureed on the Here's Lucy box set.

    Trivia (2)

    • Cheapskate Mooney sends Viv a ticket to travel 3000 miles to come and nurse Lucy. It's a bus ticket!

    • Goof: Viv walks into the kitchen and there's the crashing sound of her falling through the linoleum floor. The sound effect was added too soon as her shadow reveals she's still walking nonchalantly across the room.
