Lucy and Vivian's (who's visiting Lucy) car breaks down in the middle of nowhere. They walk to a house down the road to see if they can call an auto club and the house is owned by none other than Joan Crawford, the movie star. All her furniture has been sent out for cleaning, so Lucy and Viv think she's broke and try to raise money for the star.
Did You Know?
Lucy thinks Joan Crawford is broke but actually she's not. However in later life Joan actually did struggle with money problems. See more
When Joan is headed out of the room to get the lemonade for Lucy and Viv, a small white object can be seen moving through the doorway off stage. This is a backstage assistant ready to hand the camp stool props to Crawford for her next entrance. See more
Joan, if you don't want to go back to work perhaps you can help someone else get a job.
Well I have an offer for another performer who appeared in the show with you. Now I'd like the name...
It's me! It's me!
No, I'm afraid not. The producer said he was interested in the fat one.
I don't think so. He said the fat one with the mustache.
Mr Theodore J Mooney
[bragging to Lucy and Viv
Hey, when you've got it, you've got it!
