“Job Switching”

On arguably the most famous episode of I Love Lucy, Lucy and her friend Ethel get a job in a chocolate factory while their husbands do chores at home. If you’ve ever seen the scene at a conveyor belt where Lucy shoves multiple chocolates in her mouth, it comes from this episode! 

“Lucy Wants New Furniture”

In this hilarious episode, Lucy’s husband Ricky gets angry when she buys new furniture without asking, so he makes her use her allowance to pay for it. Watch as Lucy comes up with creative ways to do all the activities she would typically spend her allowance on, but this time without paying any professionals to help her do them.  

“Lucy is Enceinte”

When Lucy finds out she’s newly pregnant, she intends to tell Ricky, but he is always busy! Instead of telling him in private, Lucy heads to the nightclub where he works to share the big news, and Ricky ends up finding out in one of the most public ways possible. 

“First Stop”

Ethel and Lucy make a roadtrip to California with their husbands, and they run into some comical mishaps along the way. After a misleading sign for a lousy cafe leads them to spend the night at a scummy motel, they soon realize the owner is taking advantage of them.
