However, when one of the quartet members is forced to drop out just before a big musical contest in Albany, Viv decides to give Lucy a chance. Of course, this requires our heroine to take some singing lessons in a hurry--and inasmuch as the inimitable Hans Conried is cast as the flustered music teacher, it's not hard to determine what happens next! ~ Hal Erickson, All Movie Guide The Lucy Show: Lucy and Viv Put in a Shower There just isn't enough space in a single bathroom for the five members of the Carmichael-Bagley household, thus Lucy (Lucille Ball) and Viv (Vivian Vance) decide to install an extra shower. Neighbor Harry (Dick Martin) arranges for a plumber to do the job cheap, only to have the plumber quit in disgust over Lucy's constant meddling. Clearly, there is no other alternative for the girls than to finish the job themselves. This is the notorious episode in which Vivian Vance actually rescues Lucille Ball from drowning while the cameras are rolling! ~ Hal Erickson, All Movie Guide The Lucy Show: Lucy and Carol in Palm Springs In the concluding episode of a two-part story, Lucy's roommate Carol Bradford (Carol Burnett) is hired along with The Vagabonds to perform a musical act at an upcoming Palm Springs golf tournament. When she is invited to accompany Carol to the gig, Lucy (Lucille Ball) feigns illness so she can skip work. Upon her arrival at Palm Springs, Lucy is fixed up with a date with handsome movie actor Collin Grant (Dan Rowan)--who happens to be the golfing partner of Lucy's boss Mr. Mooney (Gale Gordon). Carol, Lucy and The Vagabonds (including an uncredited Joe Pesci!) perform "Lazy River" and "The Hukilau Song." ~ Hal Erickson, All Movie Guide The Lucy Show: Lucy and George Burns Season Five of The Lucy Show begins, typically enough, with a guest star--in this instance the ageless George Burns. While doing business with banker Mooney (Gale Gordon), Burns confides that he is working up a new nightclub act: All he needs is a "kooky" female partner. Enter Mooney's secretary Lucy (Lucille Ball), who proceeds to amaze Burns with a convoluted explanation of her unique filing system. Duly impressed, Burns invites Lucy to join him on stage--and what follows is not only a fond recreation of the old "Burns and Allen" days (with Lucy, of course, as Gracie), but also a song-and-dance duet to the tune of the old Sophie Tucker standard "Some of These Days." ~ Hal Erickson, All Movie Guide The Lucy Show: Lucy, the Bean Queen In desperate need of money for new furniture, Lucy (Lucille Ball) and Mary Jane (Mary Jane Croft) attempt to take advantage of an advertising campaign created by Col. Andrew Bailey (Ed Begley), aka "The Bean King." Succeeding at getting double her money back on a can of Colonel Bailey's Bean, Lucy and Mary Jane go through the same rigmarole time and time again, until the two ladies have managed to collect $1500. What our heroines don't know is that Lucy's boss Mr. Mooney (Gale Gordon) is Colonel Bailey's biggest investor! ~ Hal Erickson, All Movie Guide The Lucy Show: Lucy and the Submarine Called up for two weeks' service as a
