** Before that, Lucy's attempt at chocolate dipping, in which she is able to pick up on the rhythm of the task, but fails completely in the execution.




to:

* Ethel performing a séance [[ItMakesSenseInContext giving AT&T operators]] a run for their money.
-->'''Ethel''': ''(dramatically robust)'' I shall now reach out to the spirits.\\
''(Nasally and deadpan)''\\
Ethel to Tilly, Ethel to Tilly! Come in Tilly! Over!
* One of Lucille Ball's personal favorites, Lucy performing as Camille, the snaggel toothed Queen of the Gypsies in "The Operetta."
** The lyrics for the operetta in general, as written by Lucy, are cheesy, clunky and yet [[SoBadItsGood stupidly funny in a charming way]].
-->'''Ricky''': ''(singing)'' I am the good prince Lancelot\\
I love to sing and dance-a-lot!

* From "Lucy's Italian Movie," the classic Wine Vat scene, which is a venerable master class in both Physical Comedy and Facial expressions.




to:

* Even legendary funny man [[Creator/TheMarxBrothers Harpo Marx]] wasn't impervious to Lucy's overall charm as he noticably [[{{Corpsing}} breaks]] while the two recreate the classic mirror scene from his film ''Film/DuckSoup''.
* Lucy having to battle the worlds heaviest head dress while shooting her big hollywood debut role. The poor director is nearly driven insane by her antics.

Given that Lucille Ball is often ranked and considered the funniest comedienne in television history, and ''I Love Lucy,'' is still to this day lauded as one of the greatest Sitcoms of all time, expect quite a few legenday examples on this page.

* 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.

Added DiffLines:

** Ricky eventually ends the bit by ''plugging the TV in'', electrocuting Lucy. He then asks where the chasis was; turns out Lucy didn't know it all slid out as one piece, so ''she disassembled the entire TV.''

* In [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=jkejvg1zDn0 Lucy Goes to the Hospital]], Ricky, Fred, and Ethel practice what they need to do when Lucy declares "The time has come!" The practice goes very smoothly of course. [[HilarityEnsues And then...]]
-->'''Lucy:''' Ricky, this is it!

** Then there's the episode's timeless second act, [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=2m1Nubw8XJw Vitameatavegamin]] -- the single funniest sketch in the history of television. So funny even the other actors can't contain their laughter. If you look closely you can see Desi and the actor playing the director biting down on the insides their cheeks to avoid cracking smiles. Desi even went on record saying the inside of his cheeks were sore after shooting that scene.

* "Ricky Needs an Agent": When Lucy spills the beans that she pretended to be an agent at a movie studio but accidentally got Ricky released from his contract, Ricky can barely talk so [[http://www.dailymotion.com/video/x186ikl_i-love-lucy-smashing-glass_tv Lucy gives him things to smash.]] After smashing numerous glass items on the carpet and leaving, Lucy starts cleaning up and checks underneath the couch. Cue Fred and Ethel walking in, getting the wrong idea:
--> '''Ethel''': He killed her and tried to hide her body underneath the couch!

to:

* "Ricky's Screen Test": [[http://www.dailymotion.com/video/x186ikt_i-love-lucy-close-up_tv The entire last act]] has many funny bits: The loud assistant director that rattles Lucy ("QUIET ON THE SET!" "ROLL 'EM!" "RICARDO SCREEN TEST, TAKE FOUR!"), Lucy constantly trying to face the camera to be "discovered" (she's supposed to be shot only from the back), the director getting increasingly fed up and finally snapping, putting the AD to shame ("All right, now this is it: Good, bad, or indifferent! ROLL 'EM!!! ROLL 'EM, I SAID!!!"), and Ricky eventually resorting to ''tying Lucy up on the bench''.
