Lucy McGillicuddy Ricardo
Fred Hobart Mertz
On May 20, 2016 CBS broadcast a colorized version of this episode as part of "The New 'I Love Lucy' All Star Special. The special consisted of two colorized "I Love Lucy" episodes that aired consecutively during the series' fifth season. The second colorized episode was titled "Lucy and John Wayne"
Robert Taylor, the actor who "autographed" Lucy's orange, was born on August 5, 1911--the day before Lucille Ball.
For most shots, the "cement" was actually styrofoam.
The Grauman's marquee is advertising The Tall Men which starred Clark Gable and Jane Russell.
Ethel: (reading the cake) 'To My Darlin': Another Marlon!'
Ethel: Marlon Brando. You know anybody else named Marlon?
Fred: Sure, Marlon Monroe!
Lucy: Well, I can't think with all this cement wrapped around my foot.
Ricky: Oh, is that where your brains are?
Ricky: Okay, let's have the story.
Lucy: Story? What makes you think there's a story?
Ricky: Well the Mertzes are in their beds with their clothes on and you have your foot in what seems to be a block of cement. I just thought there would be a little explanation.
Lucy: You'd think so, wouldn't you?
Fred: (after Lucy's foot is caught in a bucket of cement) I would hate to be the next shoe salesman who waits on you.
Tourist Husband: Excuse me. Are you sitting on John Wayne?
Lucy: Ethel, if you're going to get chicken on a routine souvenir hunt.
Ethel: Lucy, you're a natural born crook.
Lucy: I'm going to take home a souvenir to end all souvenirs, John Wayne's block.
Ethel: Well, you'll need it because when Ricky finds out what you've done he'll knock yours off.
Ethel: What are you doing?
Lucy: Comparing my leg to Betty Grable's.
Ethel: Oh, it looks identical.
Lucy: Oh, to you and me maybe, but I doubt it would fool Harry James.
Lucy: What will we see first?
Ethel: I vote for Catalina.
Fred: I vote for Catalina.
Lucy: I vote for Grauman's Chinese.
Ethel: We got the majority.
Lucy: I got the car.
Ethel and Fred: Grauman's Chinese.
Lucy: Okay warden, when do we leave?
Ricky: Well just as soon as you can get ready. How long will it take you?
Lucy: Six years.
Ricky: I guess Brando and I do have a lot in common.
Fred: Yeah, I can't understand either of you when you talk.
For the rest of I Love Lucy, Lucille Ball and Vivian Vance have the the same color of red and blonde hair respectively due to a formula hairdresser Irma Kusely came up with for each actress.
As of this episode, General Foods became the new sponsor for the show.
From now until episode 153 the "Lucy" script writers are credited as: Bob Caroll, Jr. Madleyn Pugh, Jess Oppenheimer, Bob Schiller, and Bob Weiskopf.
