Storyline

Richard Burton, the movie star, escapes riotous fans by wearing a plumber's disguise. Lucy Carter mistakes him for a much needed plumber, and brings him back to the office to fix a sink. Lucy later finds a remarkable diamond ring in his discarded overalls. By the time Lucy discovers it is THE famous Elizabeth Taylor diamond ring, it is already stuck on her finger. The end result is a crescendo of comedy as Liz feverishly tries to get the ring off Lucy's finger. Ultimately, Lucy's arms are used as Liz Taylor's while Richard & Liz do a scheduled press party.

Trivia

When the closeup of the Taylor-Burton Diamond is shown, one can tell that the setting is different from the studio's set. That is because the show's insurance wouldn't cover the cost of showing the diamond at the studio (e.g., if it were lost or stolen), so a another shot had to be done at a different, more secure location.
