  • The Ricardos and Mertzes choose to bicycle between Italy and France, when passport problems intersect their plans at the border.

    I love this episode. It aired on the very day I was born in 1956. I have been an ILL fan from the day I was born to this day. As usual, Fred and Ethel are exchanging put downs, and Lucy tries to make her European vacation "perfect" by doing something memorable. The bicycle ride between the two cities is, of course, absurd, but the problem at the border is not only "Luci-esque" but real. A very similar thing happened to me once between Argentina and Brazil. An excellent example of the ILL "fun" and "feel good" episodes of the mid 50's. I Love Lucy
