Quotes

Harriet Nelson: You know, it's none of my business, but don't you think taking riding lessons is a pretty expensive way to meet a girl?
Ozzie Nelson: Yeah, especially since you don't need the lessons?
Ricky Nelson: Oh, well, we made a deal. See, I'm gonna teach her how to play the guitar, and she's gonna teach me how to ride.
Ozzie Nelson: Well, that sounds like a good idea.
Harriet Nelson: What happens, if she finds out you can ride?
David Nelson: Probably hit him over the head with the guitar.

The theme of this episode is deception, but not in a nasty way: Rick wants to get to know the cute riding instructor at the stables; she wants to learn how to play the guitar. We also find out that years ago, Ozzie said he didn't know how to swim and Harriet said she couldn't ice skate, but those were little lies, too, for the same reason - to get together.

Along the way in this episode, we get some good lines, including one by David at the dinner table. After hearing his dad relate the swimming story, he say, "You know, some day I'm going to write a book. It's going to be called "The Adventures Of Ozzie & Harriet.'"

We also are treated to two songs, one alone by Ricky and the other a family effort with Ozzie and Dave also singing stanzas at an old-fashioned hay ride. I'll tell you: this program is pure 1950s with its innocence and feel-good family atmosphere. It's so well done that it never feels too dated or corny, even though it is.

This was part of the outstanding DVD released in 2007 called "The Best Of The Adventures Of Ozzie & Harriet." It is highly recommended viewing, especially for those who watched this show a half century ago!
