Trivia

Danny Thomas is on the set of his 1976 sitcom "The Practice." A month earlier, Lucille Ball guest-starred on the series, which only lasted one season. See more »

Goofs

Desi Arnaz mistakenly calls a clip from "The Audition" (S1;E6) of "I Love Lucy" the pilot. The unaired (and considered lost) pilot contained the same vaudeville act that Lucy and Desi toured the country. It was recreated again for "The Audition." See more »

Quotes

Danny Kaye: Saying Lucille Ball is 'just' a comedian is like saying Margot Fonteyn is 'just' a dancer.
