Brock Posted May 2, 2011 Report Share Posted May 2, 2011 Continuing on our theme... how about Lucy episodes based on books? What Mrs. McGillicuddy Saw -- While in California, Mrs. McGillicuddy tries to track down one of her movie stars, Ramon Novarro. After buying a map of the movie stars' homes, Mrs. McGillicuddy tracks down the Novarro residents, only to see two young gigolos fleeing the house on foot. Two months later, Mrs. McGillicuddy casually mentions what she saw during a bridge game and when questioned by police on why she didn't come forward? You guessed it. "You didn't ASK me!" (Based on the novel "What Mrs. McGillicuddy Saw" by Agatha Christie) The Grapes' Wrath -- With the purple colour from the grapes showing no signs of wearing off, Lucy is spotted by a vacationing talent scout in Rome and she inspires him to create the character of Grimace for a new line of McDonalds commercials. Guest stars -- Phil Ober (Ray Kroc), Ronnie Howard (Kroc's son Ronnie, who later inspires Ronald McDonald) The Michael Caine Mutiny -- Harry lands a coup in getting a great product placement deal for the employment agency in Michael Caine's new movie "Get Carter", but when Harry gives Lucy a bonus to sneak on set in the middle of the night to hang his portrait in a prominent location -- only to have it fall on the star's head during a climactic scene -- Mr. Caine sues Harry for every dime he's worth. To Kill A Mooney-Bird -- Against all reason, Irma Mooney forces Theodore to let Lucy babysit Greenback while they have a Thanksgiving away in Pismo Beach. He owes it to her after his antics in Atlantic City, says Irma. When Lucy pops out to pick her new son Jimmy up from Military School for the holiday weekend, she comes home to find that Mary Jane's Aunt Gussie has taken custody of Greenback in case Mary Jane's turkey isn't enough to go around. (Guest Star: Keith Thibodeaux as Jimmy. Miss Ball just picked a TV son at random, and it was Keith.) Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
