    There are references to their real marriage, like the episode where Lucy wants to re-do their wedding. They talk about the actual reception hall Desi and Lucille got married at. Also, they came up with Little Ricky because Lucille was having Desi Jr. I'm not sure exactly what you're asking, but I think the whole show is based on their marriage. Their love. They started the show because of their marriage and they wanted to work together.

    They had to cover up the bruises on Lucy's face with makeup, of course. We all know that!

    Desi and Lucy loved each other. They just couldn't live together.

    The episode "Fred and Ethel Fight" was based on an event in the Arnaz marriage. Lucy and Desi had friends over who were fighting and helped then make up. As in the episode, Lucy and Desi started talking about one of their fights and argued over who apologized first. At the end of the dinner, the other couple were getting along fine, and Lucy and Desi weren't speaking to each other.

    And then she "fell down the stairs".
