    • Lucy wins five rooms of furniture in the contest.

    • This is the only time when it's mentioned that the Ricardo's have a party telephone line.

    • Ricky asks to see how well Lucy and Ethel have wallpapered the bedroom. As Ricky and Lucy enter their bedroom, we see Fred following behind, then popping out of sight to await his cue!

    • Lucy says that the WINNERS are EACH getting new furniture, and that she and Ethel each made out 100 slips with their names on them for the drawing. If there was more than one winner, what if Lucy's (or Ethel's) name was pulled twice?

  • Notes

    • This is the first episode that credits Irma Kusely as a hairdresser. This is because Lucille Ball noticed that when she was pregnant with her daughter Lucie that her hair became "a little funky."

    • Goof: Fred can be seen waiting for his cue to enter the bedroom when Ricky first enters the room.

    • Already four months pregnant when this episode was shot, Lucy wore overalls to conceal her pregnancy on the show.

    • Based on My Favorite Husband #36 ("Give-Away Program")

    • The reason for this episode was because the furniture on the sets was beginning to show wear and tear.

  • Allusions

    • Dan Jenkins: In this episode it is used for the name of the junk man. In real life Dan Jenkins was a writer for TV Guide.
