“I Love Lucy” Friday: How do Lucy and Ethel end up in a man’s hotel room wearing negligees?
Lucy tries to fix up eligible bachelor Eddie Grant – negligee salesman – a with a young glamour girl but he thinks it’s the married redhead who wants him. Lucy shows up at Eddie’s hotel with Ethel in tow and just as they get things straightened out, Ricky and Fred show up at Eddie’s hotel room where Lucy and Ethel are trying on negligees that he is selling them for wholesale.
Lucy answers the door still in her negligee:
Ricky: “Lucy. You here, dressed in that! You must be out of your mind!”
Then Ethel strolls out in a negligee and Fred says: “Ethel. You here, dressed in that. HE must be out of his mind!”
What’s really funny is that Ethel is delighted that Fred thinks Eddie would consider her for a rendezvous.
