What is your favorite I Love Lucy episode?

Recommended Posts

Everybody has a favorite episode. Mine would be "Lucy Does The Tango". She has at least 2 dozen in her shirt and Ricky wants to practice the tango for the PTA. They do the finish and all of the eggs smash in between them...Very funny..

I don't have just the ONE favorite but for the longest time my fave was Lucy at the Brown Derby with Bill Holden, called L A At Last.

"Ricky Needs An Agent" -- completely hilarious from start to finish and all four get a chance to shine.

You keep saying that and I know the ep is great but i'll have to watch it again as you have set me straight on Mr and Mrs before and although you never truly conviced me on Dance girl dance, you are usually right about these things so . . .

This one probably gets my vote too. In my opinion, it's the funniest episode of the series.

So how come it's never made the fandom's top ten, at any time?

Not convinced on Dance Girl Dance? That's one of her best. Did you know it is in the national film registry?

Really? Just never found anything great about it, of course I don't like my Lucy SUPPORTING, I like her in a leading actress role usually.

It's hard to narrow it down to one episode, Lucy9379 :) !

 

At first I thought of Lucy Does a TV Commercial, because her Vitameatavegamin commercial is hilarious. But Ethel isn't in that one, so then I thought of the one where Lucy wants new furniture, & she & Ethel shove it into the kitchen to hide it. The next scene where Ricky surprises her in the kitchen & they walk over the furniture & kitchen counter is so funny, but the second half of that episode isn't as good.

 

I am seconding Claude's choice of LA at Last, because it has so many funny scenes throughout the whole episode. Lucy & Ethel play excited tourists so well. When the girls keep jumping up at the restaurant, (& then Fred does for Ava :marionstrong: ), of course the pies on poor Bill Holden, the scene between Ricky & Lucy in their hotel room ("I'm fickle?" :lol: ) & the whole nose bit -- superb writing & acting!

Lucy walks away with the whole damn movie. It showcases her to her absolute best and gives her the opportunity to exercise so many facets of her performing chops from high drama, to comedy, to singing and dancing -- and a brawl or two.

True she looks gorgeous in it but the story just never SENDS me, but I will give it another try, you`re usually right about these thins.

Lucy does a tv commercial, grape stomping and the chocolate factory are usually the top three but dang if we haven`t seen them so often, they`re diminished in our fan minds.

But dang she is so pretty in this.

 

My current favorite is The Dancing Star.

Well, this was special because Lucy Ricardo finally proved she had talent and didn`t she look absolutely stunning in that dress.

My alltime favoRitete I Love Lucy ep is The Operetta

I N E V E R liked this one, hated the musical eps, but have learned to worship it after decades of seeing it, true it is funny also. It clearly defines the Lucy character perfectly.

I'm going to say "Never Do Business With Friends" (just to be different because I like that) LOL!

 

I was originally going to say "Drafted" but I'd never hear the end of that :lucyhaha:

Drafted's NOT that BAD, we just use it as a reference for LESS FUNNY than the others, LOL!

All of the episodes are funny. Another one I particularly enjoy is " Lucy Raises Tulips" . She runs a muck on the lawnmower and drives over Betty's tulips. "LA At Last" is a classic too. The best part of that episode is when Bill Holden turns the tables on Lucy and stares back at her. Does anybody have a favorite episode of "The Lucy Show"? post-4449-0-62666100-1368569285_thumb.jpg

"The Operetta" is my fave ILL and "Lucy's Sister Pays a Visit" is my fave TLS. That scene of drunken cake decorating is high-larious.

LS Dean Martin episode. Love her trying to get everyone to figure out what song she keeps singing. And she needed to wear that wig more, and why does she never where that black dress again? She knocks off at least 10 years with that look.

Yes, stars staring back at her as in Holden in L A at last and Van Johnson at the pool in Vancing with Dan are two great eps er rather SCENES. As for The Lucy show, not one ep has ever topped Lucy Meets Dean Martin for me for decades now.
