Funny Quotes from I LOVE LUCY

Here's one of my favorites between Ricky and Fred from "JOB SWITCHING" When Ricky and Fred are discussing cooking dinner for the girls:

Ricky: What do you know about rice?
Fred: Well, I had it thrown at me on one of the darkest days in my life!

And here's a real great one from when the foursome is in England wanting to meet the Queen. I love this one.

Ethel : Imagine me meeting a Queen face to face, I'm scared.
Fred : You're scared? Think of the Queen!

A little trivia about Lucy's radio show

Prior to I LOVE LUCY, Lucy starred in a radio show with Richard Denning which was called "My Favorite Husband". In fact, I LOVE LUCY was originally based on that radio show. At the time, Ozzie and Harriet was a successful Television series so the network borrowed their writers, Fox & Davenport, to write the first 10 episodes of the radio show. When they had to return to Ozzie and Harriet, they were replaced by Madelyn Pugh and Bob Carrol Jr. and history, as we know it, was made!

Co-stars for My Favorite Husband, playing the best friends, (most of the time)were Gale Gordon and Bea Benaderet who were both good friends of Lucy and whom were her first choices to play Fred and Ethel Mertz. Due to previous contract conflicts, they were unable to accept her offers which cleared the way for Vivian Vance and William Frawly (Whew!) to come on board. Gale and Bea did appear on I LOVE LUCY in several episodes though, enjoying acting with their dear friend.

Don't you love trivia~

Lots of fan mail over little Ricky!

After Lucy gave birth to her baby Desi in real life and little Ricky Ricardo in television land, she received over 30,000 letters of congratulation. WOW! Unfortuneatly, she also received about 2 dozen from cranky, nasty people who had nothing better to do but complain about her showing up pregnant on TV! Some people just can't ever be happy!
