Saved By The Final Gale Gordon Remark

This was truly Lucy at her worst. Her 'antics' consisted of repeating what someone else said.

As the astronauts are about to come out, an official says, "everybody, stand back please." Lucy, "yea, everybody stand back." This can be seen in numerous other episodes, even in the Lucy show, where she does this.

But then for her to run forward and embrace the astronauts was absurd, then she shakes Harry's hand, so he must be quarantined as well.

The jokes get worse and worse.

Waiting for a phone call from the president, when Lucy gets on there (bear in mind, her voice is horribly hoarse here), now they've got "a woman" in there. She certainly didn't sound feminine and also, she was sixty here! That's hardly any idea for hanky-panky going on.

Things further progress with their all trying to go to sleep and Lucy just won't be quiet, having to say good night to everyone, then saying many of her favorite songs are about the moon.

Finally is one of the strangest 'jokes' I have way back in an episode of The Lucy Show; Lucy is trying to put the blanket on one of the astronauts and he rolls over on her hand. She mimicks like her hand is in pain. It is between a soft human body and a mattress for crying out loud! She then gets her other hand 'caught' under another astronaut in a similar fashion. It is truly a poor joke.

Worth watching only for its oddity.
