    • Ricky: (to Ethel) I never know anything around here if you don't come up once in a while and spin the beans out of the cat bag.

    • Lucy: (about Dr. Spock) Well, was he ever a mother?

    • Lucy: (her day with Little Ricky) After breakfast I put on his snowsuit. I pull on his galoshes. I slip on his mittens. I walk him to the park. He chases pigeons. I chase after him. He runs after the squirrels. I run after him. He gets on the swing. I push the swing. We go on the teeter totter. He teeters. I totter. Then we leave the park and we walk home. I pull off his galoshes. I pull off his mittens. I pull off his snowsuit. I fix his lunch. I put him down for his nap and he sleeps for a whole half hour.
      Ricky: Well that sounds very...
      Lucy: After his nap I put on his snowsuit. I pull on his galoshes. I put on his mittens. We walk back to the park. He chases the pigeons. I chase after him. He runs after the squirrels. I run after him. He gets on the swing. I push the swing. We get on the teeter totter. He teeters and by now I'm really tottering. We leave the park and walk home. I pull off his galoshes. I pull off his mittens. I pull off his snowsuit. I tell him to go in his room and play with his teddy bear. And that is why you find my sitting here with my coat and my boots on.
      Ricky: Wow.
      Lucy: What's the matter with you?
      Ricky: I'm worn out from just listening.

    • Ricky: What are you doing lying there with your coat and your boots on?
      Lucy: Motherhood.
      Ricky: Lucy!
      Lucy: Relax dear, I mean motherhood of a three year old child.
