As Ricky and Fred look up a rule in their golfing book, Lucy and Ethel drop the bombshell that they are going to learn the game, too. Ricky slams the book closed on Fred's finger. The book cover, seen on screen, identifies it as Jimmy Demaret's book, "My Partner, Ben Hogan" (New York: McGraw Hill, 1954). See more »


When Ricky and Fred are teaching Lucy and Ethel their crazy golf rules (to discourage them from playing), they started with everyone grabbing a club, and Ricky explaining that the "fourth one down from the top goes first". Later, when Lucy and Ethel meet pro golfer Jimmy Demaret, and he agrees to play with them, they insist on everyone grabbing the club as before, but Lucy announces that Jimmy goes first, because he's "second from the top".

Lucy Ricardo: Come on, now, we're gonna go to the movies.
Ricky Ricardo: Well, it better be a good picture.
Lucy Ricardo: Marriage certainly does strange things to a man. This is the same man who used to say, "Who cares about the picture? Let's just sit in the balcony and smooch."
Ricky Ricardo: Never mind.
Ethel Mertz: I know just how you feel, Lucy.
Fred Mertz: Oh, now Ethel.
Ethel Mertz: It's true, Fred. It's been years since we sat in a movie with your arm around my waist.
Fred Mertz: It's been years since my arm reached around your waist.
