Lucille Ball enjoyed giving friends permanents and egg rinses in her at-home beauty parlor. As a child Lucille Ball would observe her aunt who owned a beauty shop.
(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.
