* "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!

* "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''.

* "The Quiz Show": With Ricky cutting off her finances, Lucy tries to win a thousand dollars on a game show. To qualify, she has to done a rain slicker and sing "My Bonny Lies Over the Ocean" for the audience. The catch is that every time she says a word relating to water, host Freddie Fillmore (played by Frank Nelson) sprays her in the face with water. That's funny enough, but the gold is how he messes with her after she's done singing.

to:

* "The Kleptomaniac": Lucy secretly runs the annual bazaar after being forbidden by Ricky due to issues with her management previously. He finds money from the bazaar in her purse and sees her carting away Fred's cuckoo clock and comes to the conclusion that she's a kleptomaniac. Hoping to deter her, he brings in an expert psychiatrist, Dr. Robinson, to meet with her. Lucy, having caught on, goes along with it; she outright pretends to be a gangster-- complete with tommy gun, gangster name and Ethel as her lackey-- plants "stolen goods" around the room, makes up phony stories about them and her secret history of theft and even manages to snatch Dr. Robinson's watch. At the end of the interview, she says that she's done with stealing. When Dr. Robinson expresses doubt that she could give it up so easily, she explains that she hit her peak as a thief when she went to the circus earlier that day... and proceeds to lead ''a baby elephant'' out of the bedroom.

* "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."

** 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:

* 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.
