  • Quotes

    • (after Lucy puts oil, vinegar and eggs on Ricky's hair)
      Ricky: Oil, vinegar, eggs? Why don't you put some anchovies? Make a Caesar salad!

    • Lucy: There. I think we're making progress. Your scalp has a nice red healthy looking glow.
      Ricky: Are you sure it isn't blood?

    • Ethel: How did Mr. Thurlow get all those men to come here tonight anyway?
      Lucy: Well, it seems that they all took treatments at the same time and he told them it was a class reunion.
      Ethel: Aww, bless their little bald heads.

    • Lucy: Will you help me?
      Ethel: You don't expect me to shave my head, do you?

    • Mr. Thurlow: Just how bald are you?
      Lucy: Well. (pauses) Me?!

    • Fred: Never mind. I got plenty hair. It comes down way over my eyes.
      Lucy: Yeah, you better cut it or people will think you're a girl.

    • Lucy: What are you wearing your hat for?
      Ricky: I thought it might rain.
      Lucy: Well now that you mention it, the ceiling does look pretty cloudy.

    • Ricky: I will not get bald.
      Lucy: Well don't talk to me. Speak to your scalp.

    • Lucy: Honey, remember what you said to me the first time you met me.
      Ricky: Sure do. I said you were a cute little shaken.
      Lucy: Well, I have something to tell you about this cute little shicken. She has crow's feet.
      Ricky: You do not.
      Lucy: You don't even know what crow's feet are?
      Ricky: I do too; they're like pigeon toes.
