Did You Know?


At the time this show was filmed the cost of the Staten Island Ferry was 5 cents per ride. You really were supposed to get off the ferry and pay another 5 cents at the turnstile in the terminal to take the return ride, but there were people who sometimes fell asleep and made the round trip before they woke up. Since 1997 the ferry has been free. However, these days (especially since 9/11) you must get off the ferry and come back on through the terminal. The deckhands won't begin to load passengers until everyone from the previous trip has disembarked. Lucy and Fred would never have been allowed to stay on these days. See more »


Lucy Ricardo: [the Ricardos and the Mertzes are going to Europ] Have you studied your German?
Fred Mertz: Jawohl, Fräulein
Lucy Ricardo: Hey, that's wonderful
Fred Mertz: Geben Sie mir ein Glas Weizenbier
[pronounced light ununderstandable at the end]
Lucy Ricardo: Hey, that's great. What does it mean?
Ethel Mertz: What do you think it means? Give me a glass of beer.
Lucy Ricardo: Is this all, he'd learned?
Ethel Mertz: No, he had learned how to order nine different kinds of beer. Oh, we'll have some interesting time in Germany.
