    • When Ethel opens the door to the Ricardo's kitchen during the second morning, you can see Fred (William Frawley) waiting for his cue if you look closely.

  • QUOTES (2)

    • Minnie Finch: (answering the first question of a phony survey) Do I know - Do I know Ricky Ricardo? Oh boy, I'll say I do. He's mad about me! I got a date with 'im for Saturday night.

    • Lucy: Oh if some woman tried to steal Fred away I bet you'd be singing a different tune.
      Ethel: Yeah, Happy Days are here again!

  • NOTES (5)

    • Minnie's neighbor, played by Elvia Allman, had recurring roles on Petticoat Junction (as Selma Plout), and on The Beverly Hillbillies as Granny's nemesis from the hills, Elverna Bradshaw. Elvia Allman also played other roles in the I Love Lucy series, including the head of the candy shop in the famous "Job Switching" episode and much later as a reporter in the episode entitled "Homecoming."

    • This is Jerry Hausner's final appearance as Ricky's agent, Jerry.

    • Kathryn Card played "Minnie Finch" in this episode. Less than 30 episodes later, she would play Lucy's mother, Mrs. McGillicuddy.

    • The character of Eleanor Harris was based on the real-life journalist Eleanor Harris, who wrote the first biography on Lucille Ball.

  • ALLUSIONS (1)
