References To Other Lucy Stuff

Recommended Posts

So what are all of the little in-jokes you can remember from her shows? You know, like when they'd make a joke or a sly reference to something she's done in the past? Here are the ones that come to mind for me:

  • Bill in TLS "I gotta a feeling I know him from somewhere!" (Horse Guest)
  • Pictures of young Lucy on the wall in TLS (Gun Moll)
  • Pictures of young movie star Lucy on Kim's bedroom wall in HL (Andrews Sisters?)
  • The grandson's soccer team on LWL is called The Wildcats (World's Greatest)
  • Hey Look Me Over played in:
  1. Lucy, Harry, and Kim's bank robbing medley on HL (Candid Camera)
  2. Lucy Carter does that thing on the plane with David Frost (Night-Night)
  3. Lucy Barker is humming it as she's walking down the stairs (Breaking Up)
  4. Lucy Barker plays it on the kazoo in her one man band (Breaking Up)
  • On Mothers-In-Law, when Desi Jr. is playing Babalu and Old Desi is like "I never heard that before..." (Hombre Who Came To Dinner?)
  • Of course, when Eve says "It ain't Lucille Ball!" (Wig Story)

Feel free to post other Lucy references you can remember!

In Lucy and the Generation Gap, Lucy as Caesar's wife is reading Roman Scandals magazine.


One reference I didn't notice until a few years ago and I'm not sure of it's intentional or not: in A Date for Lucy, Kim and Craig say that Tony Rivera (Cesar Romero) played the drums with them. Lucy says, "Just what I need - another drum player." It's obviously a joke about Craig, but it could also be a reference to her real life first husband.
