  • Ethel feels hurt when she sees Lucy growing closer with Betty Ramsey. Sensing her hurt feelings, Lucy arranges for the two to meet over a ladies luncheon. Ethel and Betty bond and Lucy feels left out. A housewarming does not come off and Lucy feels stung!

    I love this episode for several reasons. I came up in Connecticut and recognize folks like the Ramseys. I think this episode makes a very good point about friendship. After all, at the beginning, Lucy is somewhat complacent and feels for Ethel, but the tide turns and, toward the end, Lucy feels abandonded and friendless. Of course, Lucy went out of her way for Ethel and she returns the favor. It's a lovely episode about friendship and who really IS your friend. Beautifully written and Vivian Vance shines in the luncheon scene, throwing priceless barbs. Great!
