As Ricky, Hope makes a joking reference to Lucy's father. While Lucy Ricardo's mother was an integral part of "I Love Lucy" in its last few seasons, her father was never mentioned. In real-life, Lucille Ball's father died when she was an infant and she was raised by her grandfather. See more »


Just as Lucy is about to close the closet door on the seal, it sticks his head through and Lucy must go offstage to get additional food to tempt it back in. See more »


Herself - Guest: [to Fred, played by Desi Arnaz] Well Fred, I didn't recognize you. You look like a new man. Took off a little weight, put on a little hair.
