  • Once again, Lucy wants new furniture. Even after Ricky forbids her to, she buys it. But how do you hide a roomful of furniture from a universe full of a certain Cuban penny-pincher's outrage? Lucy isn't too successful...What will she do now?moreless

    I did love this episode and is one of my favorites from the second season. I quote from it all the time. It was hilarious and easy for people to relate to: economizing, making mistakes, being unhappy with their appearances. (Though nobody could have looked worse than Lucy with her extremely P U F F Y hair and clown-like dress!) Although it was great, it was not quite as original as you'd hope. Lucy wants new furniture in at least four episodes. Apart from that, this would be one of the first episodes I'd want to show to someone new to I Love Lucy!moreless

FILTER BY TYPE

  • TRIVIA (3)

    • When William Frawley (Fred) sees Lucy in the dress she makes, his reaction is so hysterical that it tickles Vivian Vance (Ethel) and Ricky, too. She tells the boys "We can't let her see us like this" when Lucy runs to check her perm to make up for the laughing. You can see Desi compose himself because he knows what she's going to look like when she comes back out. William Frawley looks like he's struggling to keep from cracking up for most of the rest of the scene.

    • Lucy is dying to get new furniture in this episode as hers is so ratty, but only a few episodes earlier she won a whole house full of new furniture in the episode "Redecorating".

    • While Lucy could have made small cuts in the carpet while using the razor blade, it would be nearly impossible to cut deep enough accidentally to cut through the carpet.
