* Parodied in ''ILoveLucy''. In one episode, Cousin Ernie visits the Ricardos in New York, but likes the city a bit ''too'' much and just plain won't leave. Ernie's a sweet, simple, naive country man whose mother warned him about "wicked city women" who would try to "vamp" him... which Lucy decides to use to her advantage ''dressing up as one of those "wicked city women"'' to scare Ernie away. This entails putting on a slinky, sparkly black dress (loaded with about 800 strings of pearls), OperaGloves, and a black bob wig, in addition to carrying a long, elegant cigarette holder and walking around with a ridiculously exaggerated sashay (quote Ernie: "You got quite a hitch in yer gitalong!"). When Lucy introduces herself as a city woman ("I'm gonna VAMP you"), Ernie freaks out a bit, until she sashays over and begins "vamping" him... with involves her sashaying in place while repeatedly mussing his hair. After confirming with Lucy that she's vamping him, Ernie tells her [[GoneHorriblyRight he likes it]], at which point ''Lucy'' [[OhCrap panics and runs off]], with Ernie in hot pursuit.
