    • Lucy: "Jingle Bells, Jingle Bells, Jingle ALL the way." Ohh... I don't know what has happened to my voice lately. I don't seem to sing well anymore.
      Ricky: Lately?
      Ethel: Anymore?
      Lucy: Now that's not very nice. I grant you my voice isn't quite what it used to be.
      Ricky: It's exactly what it used to be. That's what is wrong with it.
      Lucy: Why do you say that? I used to sing quite well as I recall.
      Ricky: Well dear girl, then something is wrong with your memory.

  • Notes

    • This episode wasn't not sold into syndication with the rest of the series because CBS didn't think that the viewing audience would want to watch a holiday episode at other times of the year.

    • This is the first ever retrospective episode on a sitcom.

    • While not a part of CBS' syndication package, this episode can be found on the Season 6 DVD release, in the original black and white format and with the wraparound scenes colorized.

    • This episode was re-broadcast (colorized) December 18,1989 on CBS

    • TV Land aired this episode in its entirety in December 2002 - but in its original black-and-white format, not colorized as it is on most video versions.

    • Also known as 'The Lost Episode' or 'Jingle Bells'. Because this was a "special" and employed so many long flashback sequences, this episode was not included in the eventual syndication package. The last time even a portion of it was telecast was December 1981 on Rona Barrett's short-lived NBC series, "Television: Inside and Out." Today, most fans can find this episode available on video.
