Career
AIRED:
Tired of being a housewife doing nothing but grueling household chores, Joan seeks her true calling as a great actress. In her first role, she's cast as a housewife who does nothing but scrub dirty floors.
Later, the judge is raising money for his political career and invites two arch rivals over for dinner and donations; he just didn't mean to have them both over on the same night. Joan and Brad try to keep the two apart AND serve a meal in two different rooms at the same time.moreless

      • I Love Lucy Plot?:
        In several episodes, Lucy complains that Ricky is standing in the way of her showbiz career by keeping her at home scrubbing and cleaning. Here, Joan declares that Brad is "stifling me" with "cooking, washing and scrubbing" when she could be a great actress.

        In a classic Lucy episode, Ricky is on the phone describing the type girl he wants for his show. Lucy responds by pretending to be taller, shorter--even brunette. Here, the director is discussing the type of girl he wants. As he mentions short, tall, or fat, Joan raises, lowers and puffs herself up to fit each type.
