It's the little things they do together...

Recommended Posts

"Hollywood Anniversary"---so many moments in this one, but I think my favorite is how her face changes momentarily when Ricky's telling the audience why he's singing....She's mad but does a brief "WTF?" look when he says "I hope this'll does it".

 

"Chris's New Years Eve Party"--that little look of happiness and pride as Jerry poises himself to ask her to dance. (This moment was mentioned specifically in the TV Guide review of "the Lucy Show" in which the critic makes this odd statement: "I remember denouncing I Love Lucy as the worst program of the year because it display only ONE-FIFTH (caps are mine) of Miss Ball's talents. More of them are visible on The Lucy Show". He refers to NYEve as "the best of the lot so far". I'm guessing he didn't see that many.)

LOL! Thankfully we don't have to worry about that sort of thing Claude. We were blessed in all the "right" places :gary:

My God, your OTHER avatar pic is of Christmas also, can`t believe the Jewish guy came up with all these beautiful Christmas touches.

You have to wonder how SOME critics ever found work.

  • How about in Lucy tells the truth, after the knives have been thrown at her . . . she`s hugging Ricky and then remembers what just happened and quickly changes it to WHAT THE HELL, DON`T YOU LOVE ME ANYMORE and then again switches back to lovey dovey.

I know! This year I'm really in the Christmas spirit for some reason - even been listening to Christmas songs!

Did you ever while growing up? Always wondered how Gary influenced Lucy in that department.

Yes, because my ex step-mum was Catholic so we always had Christmas dinners and presents

Another one: Ethel's reluctance to give up the money in "Ricky's European Booking." ("Is he going with us?")

Oh yes, one of my faves, and the one where she puts up the TV antenna, has made a hole in the roof and looks in and says, SHOULD HAVE MADE MY BED THIS MORNING.

Ricky Sells the Car- I love how Ethel keeps asking Lucy "What are you doing."

Sorry, but my favorite with a car has to be the one where the jack is coming through the hood as they have no idea how to change a tire and then put the old BAD tire back on.

Lucy's Punctured Romance -- I love the little shrug Gale gives after he deadpans: "There's nothing confusing about it -- Lucy's simply a deaf alcoholic who has been married six times." As if to say, what's the big deal?

One thing I adored was the continuity in, I believe it was, "Country Club Dance," when Ethel says something like, "Fred hasn't been so nice to me since he thought my aunt died and left me a fortune." Which, of course, is an allusion to "Lucy Goes To Monte Carlo."

Enjoy it then, continuity was NOT their forte.

I just watched this Here's Lucy episode last night, "Lucy and The Chinese Curse." I just love the way Lucy slaps Gale in the face when she's dangling from that chandelier and mouthing, "Put me down, put me down!" It almost looks like she really slapped him hard. LOL

I think Lucy was always committed to those slaps. The wallop she gives Ricky in Lucy and the Dummy was pretty hard.

How about when Viv hits HER in the one about the guys wearing their old raggety clothes and the girls do the same and are photographed? Looks like Viv's trying to get rid of a lot of hostility in that scene, hitting Lucy very hard with her hat, LOL!

Oh, gotta check that out. How about the outake from the Jane Meadows HL when she hits Desi Jr. after he messes up for the second time. There seemed to be a lot pissing her off thetr

Ricky's Old Girlfriend -- When listing off her many past amours, the extra emphasis Lucy puts on "...and ARGYLE, and Bud..."
