Episode Summary

EDIT
The Young Fans
AIRED:

A shy young teenager named Peggy has a major crush on Ricky. Ricky, however, is tired of all the "attention" that this girl is giving him, so asks Lucy to have a talk with her. During their conversation, Lucy asks Peggy to think of some other boys her own age that she might like to go out with instead. Peggy, it seems, also likes a boy named Arthur Morton. Unfortunately, Arthur is painfully shy and cannot dance, so Lucy volunteers to give him a dance lesson, but then Arthur becomes infatuated with Lucy! To get the two off their backs, Lucy and Ricky come up with a solution: they will dress up and act like 90 year-olds, and scare their "young fans" back to reality.

  • QUOTES (16)

    • Ricky: Go to Lucy, Arthur. She's all yours.
      Lucy: We'll be very happy together, Arthur. Of course, I'll miss the old gentleman. He's the only one that knew how to put the batteries in my hearing aid.
      Arthur: Your hearing aid?
      Lucy: Yes. You don't mind, do you?
      Arthur: Oh, no. No. I still love you.
      Lucy: How's that?
      Arthur: I said I still love you!
      Lucy: Oh yes. Uh, it sure does.
      Aruthur: No. I said I still love you!
      Lucy: Oh no. Oh no, thanks. Never touch the stuff.
      Ricky: Peggy, please keep jiggling! Please! (Peggy jiggles Ricky's legs)

    • (A disguised Lucy pretends to put dentures in her mouth)
      Peggy: Those teeth. Aren't they yours?
      Lucy: Well, they sure are. I made the last payment two months ago.

    • Peggy: (shocked) Do you still know how to dance?
      Lucy: I think I can recall a few variations on the turkey trot.

    • Arthur: Mrs. Ricardo doesn't look so old. She's kinda well preserved.

    • Lucy: Yeah, he's babaed his last lu.

    • Ricky: Keep jiggling, Peggy! You're a much better jiggler than Lucy.

    • Lucy: (to Ricky) I used to think I'd enjoy growing old with you, but after this preview you better grow old alone.

    • Lucy: Oh swell. Here we are in the middle of a four-sided triangle.

    • Lucy: I gave Arthur a dancing lesson.
      Ricky: Arthur. Arthur who?
      Lucy: Well believe me, it wasn't Arthur Murray.

    • Arthur: Mrs. Ricardo, I can't dance with you. You're a woman.
      Lucy: Yeah, my husband likes me that way.
      Arthur: Well, I don't know...a woman.
      Lucy: Look, Arthur. Some people are men and some people are women. They're made that way so they can dance together.

    • Lucy: Arthur, Arthur, take shorter steps. You'll be dancing with a girl not an antelope.

    • Lucy: Now what about boys your own age?
      Peggy: Oh, they're all so icky.
      Lucy: They're icky, huh?
      Peggy: Yeah, except Arthur.
      Lucy: Arthur?
      Peggy: Arthur Morton. He's wonderful. He's got curly hair, big sad eyes, and floppy ears. He looks like Gregory Peck.
      Lucy: Sounds more like Lassie.

    • Peggy: Gosh, you have that certain something.
      Lucy: Well, that's quite a compliment. But how would a girl your age know I have that certain something?
      Peggy: I can tell by the way my mother looks at my father when my father looks at you.

    • Lucy: (about Ricky) He's a little older too.
      Peggy: I know. He's middle age.
      Lucy: What?!
      Peggy: He must be pushing 23.
      Lucy: Yeah, he's pushing 23 alright. In fact he's pushed it all the way to 35.

    • Peggy: Did I startle you?
      Ricky: No, I always wash my hands in the coffee every morning.
      Peggy: That's interesting.

    • Lucy: (with lowered voice) I had Arthur come over here, and I gave him a dancing lesson to get Peggy off your neck.
      Ricky: What are you whispering about?
      Lucy: If my feet ever find out that it was my idea, they'll kill me!
