Lucy: (on the phone) Ethel? How'd you like to play a new game called "Hide the Houseguest"?
Mario: Last night I'm-a get-a fired.
Lucy: No, Mario, you didn't get-a fired.
Mario: Yes, I'm-a get-a fired.
Lucy: Mario, I think you misunderstood. Ricky said that you were--
Mario: Please, Señora Ricardo. My English is not so pretty good, but in my country when two men grab me, push me to the door and kaploop (makes a kicking motion)--I'm fired.

Lucy: I'm afraid it's slack season for all the gondoliers in New York.
Fred: Unless you go down to Canal Street!
Ricky: You know something? We haven't played bridge since we four went to Europe.
Lucy: I know. I bet I've forgotten everything I ever knew about bridge.
Ricky: Good. Then maybe we can win.
