Previous episode: Lucy Is Jealous of Girl Singer            Next episode: The Benefit


Lucy hires an Apache dancer from Paris to teach her the moves for Ricky's new act at the club. But the overly romantic Romeo decides to fight Ricky for Lucy's honor, via a pistol-fueled duel.


  • Ricky discusses moving to the country with Lucy in this episode. The Ricardos won't move to the country until season 6, but obviously, Lucy forgot this long-ago conversation with Ricky. Otherwise, she would have known that Ricky wasn't opposed to the idea.
  • In season 1, a preview of the next week's episode was shown at the end of the show to entice viewers. This was the first episode to have such a preview.
  • Jean Valjean Ramon really has a wife and five kids.
  • Ethel insults Jean Valjean Ramon by calling him a "creep suzette." This is even funnier when you remember that Ethel makes Crêpes Suzette for Lucy to serve to Eleanor Harris in episode #83.


  • Ricky: (about Fred crossing fingers) What's that for?

Fred: Well, I'm always hoping that this time'll be the charm.

Ricky: What do you mean?

Fred: Ethel keeps going out to put on a new face, but she always comes back with the old one...

  • Lucy: There's just two things keeping me from dancing in that show.

Fred: Your feet?

  • Fred: Who's dueling?

Lucy: Ricky and Jean Valjean Ramon.

Fred: All four of 'em?!
