Lucy McGillicuddy Ricardo
Fred Hobart Mertz
In the last scene when Lucy "freezes," if you look closely a fly lands right on top of her head
You'll notice a cable pulling the Pontiac when Ethel starts it up and it crashes into the back of Fred's Cadillac.
Lucy offers to teach Ethel how to drive a car in this episode. Yet in episode #64, "The Camping Trip," Ethel knew how to drive.
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.
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.
