Quotes

Lucy Ricardo: Now, Ricky, listen to me, please, listen to me! That's what they asked me to do at the radio program in order to win that thousand dollars, and I came home and I tried to do it, and I don't know who that first man was, but I was never married to him, and this is the man from the program, and he's my real first husband, but I was never married to him either, and that's the truth, so help me!
