Lucy McGillicuddy Ricardo
Fred Hobart Mertz
(Jean is surprised that Ricky didn't react like all American men.)
Ricky: American men, eh? I guess I fooled you with my Brooklyn accent.
Ricky: What do you mean, you came here...?
Jean: Please, please, this is no time to argue. If we stay here much longer, her stupid husband will return and find us here.
Lucy: Watch what you're saying! (points at Ricky) He is my stupid husband. (stutters) He's my husband.
Lucy: There's just two things keeping me from dancing in that show.
Fred: Your feet?
Jean: Why are American women so stubborn?
Lucy: Why are French men so amorous?
Jean: I don't know, just fortunate I guess.
Lucy: Ricky, what are you doing here?
Ricky: I live here, remember?
Lucy (on learning Fred is going to be her dance partner): I suppose a fat Apache is better than none.
Lucy: Oh Ethel, did you ever wish there was something else to marry besides men?
(Lucy and Ethel come back from fixing their makeup.)
Fred: Same old one. (uncrosses his fingers)
Ricky: Same old one here too.
Ethel: What are they talking about?
Lucy: I don't know but whatever it is, ours aren't young enough.
Ricky: If Lucy doesn't have any lipstick on, she thinks she's nekkid.
Ricky: Yeah, you know not wearing a thin.
Fred: A thin what?
Ricky: Clothes, clothes!
Fred: Nekkid - not wearing no thin clothes.
Fred: Ethel keeps going out to put on a new face, but she always comes back with the old one.
Guest star Shepard Menken (Jean Valljean Raymand) makes three other appearences in the series: season 2 episode "Lucy Becomes a Sculptress" where he plays the art store owner William Abbott, season 3 episode "Lucy Has Her Eyes Examined" where he plays the eye doctor, and season 5 episode "Paris at Last" where he plays the street artist named Charpontier.
My Favorite Husband: "The French Lessons"
In Lucille Ball's autobiography, Love, Lucy, she mentions that she once dislocated her shoulder doing an Apache dance at the age of twelve.
(Ricky lights two cigarettes at once.)
Ricky: Hey, look at me. I'm making like Paul Henreid.
Ricky refers to the famous scene in "Now Voyager" (1942) in which Paul Henreid lit a cigarette for Bette Davis.
Desi: All this shaving is wearing my chin out.
Lucy: Okay, Andy Gump.
Andy Gump was a chinless comic strip character created by J.M. Patterson and Sidney Smith in 1917.
