* "L.A. at Last": Of course, the scene where Lucy, sporting a fake nose to disguise herself from William Holden (whom she had an embarrassing moment with in the Brown Derby restaurant earlier), accidentally sets the fake nose on fire when trying to light a cigarette. Even funnier, this wasn't in the script, so Ricky's shocked look is genuine.

* The episode where they open a diner. Ricky and Lucy end up talking to and greeting the customers, while Fred and Ethel end up slaving away in the kitchen. After a feud, the couples agree to split the diner IN HALF. Cue the sequence where a customer comes in and asks for a hamburger. The couples try to get him to buy from THEM a hamburger and Fred and Ethel end up going down to a one cent hamburger. Lucy then calls the customer over to her side, whispers something in his ear, gives him a dollar from the cash register, and the guy goes over to Fred and Ethel and asks "I'd like 100 hamburgers." And Fred and Ethel's response: "I'm sorry we're all out of hamburgers."

** Lucy responding to Ricky's attempt at HashHouseLingo in "The Diner": "Next time you want a hamburger without onions, ''ask'' for a hamburger without onions! Don't just stand there yelling, "Bring the bull in the ring and laugh in his face"!

** Earlier, in the Brown Derby restaurant scene, Fred derides Ethel and Lucy for standing up and asking "Where?" every time a male celebrity is announced over the intercom, but when "Phone call for Ava Gardner" is said, Fred stands up and says, "Where?" When Ethel calls him on his hypocrisy:

--> '''Ethel''': Fred, sit down. Remember? "She's just people, like you and me."\\
'''Fred''': She might be people, but she's ''not'' like you and me!

* From "Fred and Ethel Fight," Ricky is in top snarker form at the start, culminating in a legitimate spit-take in the background when Lucy refers to Ethel as a "cute young chick."
** Lucy and Ricky tying Fred and Ethel into the same coat until they make up. And then [[TastesLikeDiabetes when they do make up.]]
-->'''Lucy''': You know this is pretty sickening.
-->'''Ricky''': I liked it better when they were mad!
** Ricky and Lucy going back and forth about their own last fight. Eventually Ricky pauses, glaring at Lucy.
-->'''Fred''': ''[pointing at Ricky]'' It's your serve.
** Ricky checking Fred's grape soda to make sure it isn't spiked after Fred [[ItMakesSenseInContext suggests burning down the apartment building.]]



** The ideas Ethel comes up with after Lucy accidentally cements a fake beard to her face to get rid of said beard involve ripping it off via weight and ''burning it off Lucy's face''. Keep in mind Lucy is dressed in a suit at the time so as to appear like a Southern gentleman and not look bizarre.



* When [[DoomMagnet Lucy]] wants to go to lunch with Ricky and Richard Widmark, Ricky obviously says no after all the wacky hijinks that have happened around her. She eventually intimates she's just going to go to the same restaurant and maybe just drop by their table.
-->'''Ricky''': And if I so much as see you there, I'm going to wrap you up in a brown paper bag and ship you back to New York! ''[goes to leave]'' And that's an ultimatum!
** Lucy is more surprised that he could pronounce the word ultimatum than by his threat.



** Later on, Ricky pretends to be jealous to keep Lucy away. Lucy decides to enlist the help of "Maurice Dubois" - actually the real Charles Boyer - to prove to Ricky that she doesn't care about Boyer. She asks him if he can handle the romantic lead, and he replies that he's never tried that before.

* From "Lucy Wants New Furniture," Ricky says they can't afford the titular new furniture, and Lucy grabs a chair and a magazine, saying "I may have to live with that furniture, but I don't have to look at it!" before sitting down and angrily opening the magazine - and accidentally ''ripping it in half''.

* When they're in France, Lucy has been seeing Charles Boyer everywhere, and when she sees the ''actual'' one, Ricky [[GoLookAtTheDistraction sends her to go powder her nose before she talks to him]] so he can warn Charles. Charles is - understandably - shocked to find out that [[CloudCuckooLander Lucy]] really did all those things that he believes are publicity stories.
-->'''Charles Boyer''': In French, I think we have a word for her. ''Balle du vis.''
-->'''Ricky''': What's that mean?
-->'''Charles''': ''Screwball.''
