* YourCheatingHeart: Probably. Given the way [[HaysCode censorship]] worked in TheThirties, they can't come out and say Jerry cheated on Lucy. It's heavily implied, though, when Jerry lies about being in Florida and no explanation is given as to where he really is.[[labelnote:Note]]The story from which the film was made had Jerry gambling with his pals.[[/labelnote]] Similarly, Lucy insists that she didn't sleep with the music teacher, but said teacher's comments kind of sound like they did, and the scene where they discuss it is vague.
