** In "Little Ricky Gets Stage Fright," he [[ExactlyWhatItSaysOnTheTin gets stage fright before his first drum recital]]. Ricky, Lucy, Ethel, and Fred all worry about how to ease the kid's nerves after he basically turns his back on the drums afterwards. Lucy hits on the idea to get the kiddy band a performance at Ricky's club, and Ricky immediately agrees - but on the night of the event, the ukulele player gets sick, and Little Ricky doesn't want to play without a ukulele. Lucy puts on the kid's uniform and kneels so she looks the same height as the rest to fill in.

* On the cruise ship over to Europe, Lucy is feeling abandoned since Ricky has been busy basically every waking moment playing so they can travel for free. She eventually plans to kidnap him just so they can spend some time together - only to find out he's arranged for the night off so they can spend some time together.
* It's 2:30 AM. You've just spent several hours dismantling a freshly-constructed brick-and-cement barbecue so [[ItMakesSenseInContext you can help your best friend find her missing wedding ring,]] with no luck. Your friend is now trying tearfully to put it back together. What do you do? Well, [[TrueCompanions if you're Ethel Mertz,]] you sit down, grab a trowel, and help her.

* Lucy and Ricky each get one in "Be a Pal." Lucy fears that her marriage to Ricky is going bad, so she tries desperately to seduce him, learn his interests by playing poker, and later transforming the entire apartment into a recreation of a Cuban home to remind him of his childhood (which is hilarious). When Ricky finally gets fed up with Lucy's craziness and demands to know what's going on, she admits that [[IWantMyBelovedToBeHappy only wanted him to be happy]], and thought that if she reminded him of Cuba, he'd be more cheerful. Ricky then gets his own moment by assuring her that he loves Lucy for who she is, and in fact ''likes'' that she's so wacky and zany.

* A minor moment in "Lucy Goes to Cuba". In spite of her best efforts, Lucy has messed up in front of Ricky's family and is near tears.
-->'''Lucy''': What would you do if the first time I met you, I spilled punch all over your suit?
-->'''Ricky''': ''[completely serious]'' Just what I did! Wait for my suit to come back from the cleaners and then marry you.

--->'''Ricky''': Because I wasn't in love with a Cuban girl!
