Lucy: Nothing personal, Ethel, but anybody can see you look more like a witch than I do.
Ethel: Say, how 'bout playin' some bridge tonight?
Lucy: Oh, sorry, honey. Ricky has to go to a fathers' meeting at school. And say, the last time we played bridge, you said you'd never want to play with me again. What happened?
Ethel: Our television set's broken.
Lucy: Stranded, eh?
Fred: Come on. Give me a hand, will ya, Ethel?
Ethel: What's the matter? Can't you handle it by yourself?
Fred: No, I can't handle it by myself.
Ethel: Why not?
Fred: Because when I lost my hair, I lost my strength.
Ethel: Well if you expect me to help you, you just lost your mind.
Most of the pageant is filmed after the audience has gone home because of the amount of children involved and the technical aspects.
The staging, choreography, and scenery for the pageant are provided by Pepito Perez in association with Joanne Dancing Academies.
There are two versions of this episode: One where a group of skunks in the play lift their tails at the audience, and another where that scene is cut out.
