  • Notes

    • The original draft of this episode featured a scene in which it was implied that Ricky Ricardo had cheated the U.S. Internal Revenue Service. Desi Arnaz, however, was very protective of his adopted homeland, and insisted that Ricky Ricardo would never cheat the government. Ultimately, that particular scene had to be rewritten. It was one of the few scenes in the history of the show to be completely rewritten.
