Episode Summary

EDIT
Lucy learns to drive and then teaches Ethel everything she knows. The crash course begins as Ricky buys a brand new convertible for their California trip. Lucy wants to learn to drive it, and Ricky reluctantly agrees to teach her. With that experience under her belt (she can't really be blamed for that U-turn in the Holland Tunnel, can she?), she sets out to teach Ethel to drive. It's a good thing the car's insured. It is insured, isn't it?moreless

    • TRIVIA (3)

    • QUOTES (2)

      • Lucy: (looking at the cars she wrecked) Ethel, how do you suppose those cars got that way?
        Ethel: What cars?
        Lucy: (winking) That's right.

      • (Lucy tells Ethel she should learn to drive, too.)
        Lucy: That way, you're not so much dead weight.
        Ethel: Well perhaps I'll develop other talents like folding up road maps and keeping an eye out for clean restrooms.

    • NOTES (2)

      • As Ricky tells Fred, the '55 Pontiac has 180 horsepower and an automatic transmission. Pontiac replaced its straight eight with a new V-8 engine in 1955.

      • The 1955 Pontiac convertible seen in this and following episodes was part of a product placement deal with General Motors.

        Madelyn Davis (nee Pugh) mentions in her book that each of the writers received a new car because of this placement deal every few months for about two years.
