  • In this episode Lucy & Ricky have a bet. He cannot have a fit, or Lucy will recieve the hat she has been wanting. So Lucy tries everything in her power to make Ricky flip.moreless

    This episode was absolutely hilarious!

    Seeing Lucy trying everything in her will to make Ricky flip. Cracking nuts in the bed when he was trying to sleep, the holes in the glass, and even Fred bending his golf club. I specially loved the ending, when Lucy recieved her hat just minutes after Ricky calling off the bet.

    He told her she could pick any hat she like the best. So of course she pretends to call the hat store wanting the hat she wanted to be delivered. And soon as she hung up the phone the door bell rings. Ricky answers the door & their is the delivery man with Lucy's new hat. Haha!

    So funny!

    You just have to watch.moreless
