Lucy McGillicuddy Ricardo
Fred Hobart Mertz
Goof: Notice that Lucy's false eyelashes are removed for the bathroom scene but magically reappear when she walks into the living room.
When Little Ricky first gets his drum, it sounds like a tom-tom drum. But throughout the rest of the episode, the drum sounds like a snare.
Lucy: Why don't you just go ahead and say it. Go ahead! Come right out and say it. Say you can't stand Little Ricky's drumming.
Ethel: All right. We can't stand Little Ricky's drumming.
Lucy: How dare you say a thing like that!
Fred: What a relief! I thought he'd never quit!
Lucy: What did you say?
Ethel: (trying to be diplomatic) Oh, he, uh, n-nothing. He's just amazed at the child's stamina. He didn't think anybody could keep up that racket for four whole days!
Lucy: I think he should be a doctor.
Ricky: Well, I think he should be a drummer.
Lucy: A doctor!
Ricky: A drummer!
Lucy: Ah, fine! You agree! He's gonna be a doctor!
Ricky: What's so bad with being a drummer?
Lucy: It's just not good enough for a son of mine.
Ricky: Well, it's good enough for a husband of yours.
Lucy: Well, that's different.
Ricky: How is that different?
Lucy: He's my flesh and blood. You're just a close relative.
Lucy: (noticing Little Ricky hasn't said anything after handing him a piece of toast) What do we say after someone gives us something?
Ricky: You know, Little Ricky. You remember what Daddy always says when someone gives him something.
Little Ricky: Gracias!
Lucy: Thank you!
Little Ricky: You're welcome.
