  • Trivia

    • 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
