Previous episode: Lucy Hires a Maid            Next episode: Lucy's Last Birthday


Even though Lucy said she'd be content staying home with the baby once he was born, she wants back in Ricky's act. She ends up sneaking in the Native American-themed show, complete with Little Ricky on her back in a papoose!


  • This is the only episode of the show that can be considered very politically incorrect and/or racist. But for the time the show was made, only having one episode with racist stereotypes is a marvel in and of itself. Lucy was very much for accepting minorities, what with marrying a Cuban and long enforcing her African-American maid, Harriet, the right to stay in white-only hotels. However, parts of this episode are still very inappropriate in this day and age, most notably Fred's "reservation" joke.
  • Ricky and the Mertzes sing "Pass That Peace Pipe."
  • Lucy gets Little Ricky to laugh for the first time when she makes a funny face. Sadly, Little Ricky won't replicate the laugh for his father.


  • Ricky: Those Indians you used to have in this country- the stories about them would really make your blood cuddle!

Fred: "Cuddle"?

Ricky: Yeah, "cuddle."

Fred: Oh, "cuddle." I thought you meant like in that song, "Curdle Up a Little Closer."

  • Fred: (about his Native American costume) How do you like-um?

Ricky: Stink-um!

  • Ricky: I thought [being in show biz] had left your mind?

Lucy: Well, it had, but you opened the door, and it flew right back in!

  • Fred: (referring to Lucy wanting to be in the act after her supposed "swan song") That swan's got a little ham in it!
  • Ricky: I'll give you one good reason [you can't be in the show]- you're a mother.

Lucy: I have just as much talent now as I had before the baby was born.

Ricky: That makes TWO good reasons!

  • Ricky: (singing to tune of "By the Waters of the Minnetonka") Come here!

Lucy: (singing and shaking her head) Uh-uhn-ah!
