      Fred: (laughing) Wouldn't you like to know!
      Ricky: No.
      Fred: Well, I'll tell you anyway. But remember, this is my best gag and you gotta promise not to use it.
      Ricky: OK, I promise. What was the terrible accident on the streetcar, Fred?
      Fred: Well, a man had his eye on a seat and a woman sat on it. (Ricky looks away in disdain while Fred laughs) What a pipperoo! Remember now, you promised not to use it.
      Ricky: That's one promise I will never break.

    • Lucy: Here I am with all this talent bottled up inside of me, and you're always sitting on the cork.

    • Lucy: (after her ballet dance) Well?
      Ricky: (to Lucy) Well, you'll do for the comic, but who am I gonna get for the ballet dancer?

    • Ricky: (speaking about Lucy) What am I going to do about her?
