  • Quotes

    • Lucy: I spent 68 dollars. Let's see, that's my clothing allowance for the next eight weeks.
      Ethel: I spent 72 dollars.
      Lucy: How many weeks of allowance is that for you?
      Ethel: I should live so long.

    • Ethel: Fred, you know me. You know how I get on water. I'll be hungry and thirsty and cranky.
      Fred: What's your excuse on dry land?

    • (After pulling in Ricky from the water)
      Ethel: Are you wet?

  • Notes

    • The life preserver Eden Roc Hotel sign was made by film editor Dann Cahn just for that shot.

    • The 2 giant tunas are real. They were purchased at Fisherman's Wharf in San Francisco, packed in ice, placed in 2 children's sized coffins, and flown to Los Angeles for the filming. One problem no one counted on was that the fish would be oozing blood. To remedy the situation, each fish was stuffed with maxi pads.

    • Desi Arnaz had a passion for deep sea fishing.
