Lucy thinks a mink coat that Ricky rented for a dance number at the club is actually her anniversary gift. She's so thrilled that Ricky can't bring himself to tell her the truth. He plans to fake a burglary to get it away from her.
Did You Know?
In the original script Ricky made an attempt to get the coat by turning the heat. When she still doesn't take it off he asks her if she isn't burning up to which she replies she was but she took her clothes off an hour before. This was deleted from the script due to censors. Also in this episode when Fred says mink pox, you can clearly hear an audience member repeat him. See more
