Lucy McGillicuddy Ricardo
Fred Hobart Mertz
Lucy Ricardo's astrological sign in this episode is revealed to be Taurus (meaning her birthday would be sometime between April 20th and May 20th) however in a later episode she reveals her birthday to be August 6th (Lucille Ball's real birthday) so she can't be a Taurus.
Jay Novello (Mr. Merriweather) played the same type of character in the My Favorite Husband episode "Numerology".
Lucy Ricardo's astrological sign is revealed to be Taurus when in reality Lucille Ball and Vivian Vance are both under the sign on Leo.
When Mr. Merriweather answers the phone in his office, you can see the shadow of the microphone on the wall
Mr. Merriweather: I'm a Scorpio.
Lucy: I'm a Taurus.
Ricky: I'm cooked.
Lucy: Ethel, I think you underestimated your transmitter!
Ethel: My trance is wearing off. You better hang up now.
Mr. Merriwether: Is that you, dear?
Fred: Yes, darling.
Mr. Merriwether: Darling? That doesn't sound like Adeleide.
Fred: Shut up, you worm!
Mr. Merriwether: That's Adeleide.
Lucy: Ow! I mean ow.
Mr. Merriwether: What's the matter?
Lucy: I burned myself. It's very hot here.
Mr. Merriwehter: Oh that's where you are!
Mr. Merriwether: Tilly, that sneeze. Are you sick?
Lucy: Sick? I'm dead.
Lucy: Mr. Merriwether, I'd like to present Madame Mertzola. She's going to be our medium tonight. She's psychopathic.
Ethel: Fred, is something wrong?
Fred: It's my head.
Ethel: Oh, aren't we going to have fun at this seance?
Lucy: I guess so.
Ricky: You look seriously ill to me, Fred.
Ethel: Oh, if it's his head, he's all right there's nothing there to hurt.
(Introducing Ethel as the medium)
Fred: Introducing Raya, the medium. Well done, medium Raya.
Lucy: Well, you never can tell. Before the evening is over we may see a spook.
Ricky: Don't tell me you invited your mother.
Ricky: You're going to down there on your knees.
Lucy: Oh, won't we get there faster if we take a cab?
Lucy: Now go on. You feel free to say yes to everything today, no matter what it is.
Ricky: Oh, boy will I.
Lucy: Why do you have that idiotic smile on your face?
Ricky: I was just thinking of a perfect 16 I used to know.
(Lucy tries to find Ricky's perfect name.)
Lucy: That's the perfect name. Uh oh.
Ricky: What is it?
Ricky: That'd be interesting. Of course, you'd have to buy towels marked hers and hers.
Lucy: Maybe if you're something besides 5 it will help our vibrations.
Ricky: Dun't you like the way I vibrate?
Mr. Merriweather: Oh, you study numerology?
Lucy: Of course.
Mr. Merriweather: I'm a 1.
Lucy: I'm a 3.
Ricky: I'm a 5.
Mr. Merriweather: We're all odd, aren't we?
My Favorite Husband: "Numerology"
In real life, Lucille Ball believed in numerology. She was often known to "knock on wood" for good luck.
