Mr. Slaney: [He suddenly realizes that Catherine is coming on to him, and he nervously tries to keep talking about how Catherine's grandmother taught her to make coffee] Well, Grandma knew. I think that most grandmas knew. The old ways are the old ways - the best ways, as far as I'm concerned. She knew. God bless Grandma. Yes, sir. Give me the old ways every time. I mean, people today with their speed and their instants and their jiffies and their speedies - it's getting crazy, with your shake-a-bakes and ...

Lucille Ball in a dramatic role
25 July 2006 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Miss Ball does a fairly good job in an extended "solo" scene where she depicts her character's acute fears regarding her upcoming life as a single woman. As I recall, the scene seemed to be done in one cut... Additional scenes with her co-stars are fine, but no where near as unusual for Miss Ball. In her scene she is alone in her new apartment, with nothing but unpacked boxes to comfort her. In deciding what to do, all her fears confront her. Terrified, she breaks down, then finds the will to face tomorrow. This scene allowed her to present her dramatic side to her television audience, though I don't think many people watched. The show continued with a September/ June (not quite May) romance with Joseph Bologna, whom she initially puts off, but agrees to leave on a vacation with.
