  • Trivia

  • Quotes

    • Ricky: Women! You can't live with 'em, but I guess it'd be pretty hard to live without 'em.
      Fred: Well it might be worth a try.

    • (Lucy fails to convince Ricky to move to the country)
      Lucy: Gee. I'm sure not getting anywhere with him. You don't suppose through the years Ricky has grown an immunity to me, do you?
      Fred: Well, they're givin' shots for everything these days.

    • Fred: Perfect spot for stashing the ice.
      Mrs. Spaulding: Ice? Oh, we have a refrigerator.
      Ethel: Ah, you're cute, kiddo. Corny, but cute!

    • Mrs. Spaulding: Mrs. Ricardo, you don't look at all the way you did the other day. Your clothes are so different.
      Lucy: Oh, you mean that little dark suit, and the hat with the veil, and the little white gloves?
      Mrs. Spaulding: Yes, that's right.
      Lucy: I was on my way to a masquerade party--went as a lady!

    • (Lucy and the Mertzes arrive at the Spauldings' dressed like gangsters)
      Mr. Spaulding: Your husband. I thought he was a band leader.
      Ethel: He's our leader. We're the band.

    • (Lucy and the Mertzes are trying to come up with a plan to get Ricky's deposit back)
      Ethel: Let's see now. How can we be undesirable?
      Fred: That shouldn't be hard for you, Ethel.

    • Lucy: Honey, the baby wants you to come in and tell him a bedtime story.
      Ricky: All right, dear.
      Lucy: Why don't you tell him the one about Rudolph, the red-nosed reindeer, who lived in the big city and had one cold after another and had to keep blowing his nose. That's why his nose is red...Or you could tell him the one about Snow White and the Seven City Dwarfs: Sneezy, Dusty, Stuffy, Drafty, Sniffly, Noisy--
      Ricky: That's enough.
      Lucy: And Pasty.

    • Fred: Ethel, put your fingers in your ears.
      Ethel: Why?
      Fred: Because the only way you can keep a secret is not to hear it!

    • (Ethel starts crying, knowing that Ricky bought Lucy the house as a surprise)
      Lucy: What's the matter with you, Ethel? Are you crying?
      Ethel: No. No, I just guess I'm getting one of those city colds you were talking about.
      Lucy: You are too crying!
      Ethel: (wailing) I AM NOT!

    • Lucille Ball, Vivian Vance, and William Frawley quickly became tired from holding their arms in the air when they pretended to be criminals.
