Lucy waxes longingly when she tells Ethel of the wonderful weekend she and Ricky had with friends who live in the suburbs. She mentions that there's a house for sale, but she can't convince Ricky to move. Ethel is very anxious of the idea of not having Lucy right next door to her, but Ricky confides in the Mertzes that he has put a $500 deposit on the house as surprise anniversary present for his wife. When Lucy catches Ethel crying, she wonders what's wrong and Ricky's surprise is out. Lucy can't imagine life away from Ethel and convinces Ricky that she wants to stay in her New York apartment. But the owner and his wife will not refund Ricky his deposit, so Lucy and the Mertzes venture out to Westport, to convince the couple that they don't belong there. Things go awry, but when Ethel tells Lucy she doesn't blame her for wanting to live in this lovely colonial home, Lucy tells Ricky, definitively, that she wants the house after all.
