Lucy goes to a rodeo

I Love Lucy – Lucy Goes to a Rodeo– season 5, originally aired November 28, 1955

Fred has a Western-themed show coming up at his lodge, and he asks Ricky to perform in it.  Ricky can’t; but Lucy and Ethel volunteer.  The reason that Ricky can’t perform? He has a radio show that night.  Or is it a rodeo show?

Lucy Goes to a Rodeo is available as part of the Love Lucy season 5 DVD collection.

Fred Mertz (William Frawley): Doggone, I’m not going to be flag bearer again!
Ethel Mertz (Vivian Vance): I doubt if they’ll want you to be flag bearer again with that pot. The last time they marched down 5th Avenue the flag was two blocks ahead of the parade.


Rattlesnake Jones: I don’t know, little lady. You don’t seem to be a Western type entertainer.
Lucy Ricardo (Lucille Ball): I’m not the Eastern type entertainer either. I’m just an All-American flop.


Johnny: Don’t you know what a rodeo is?
Ricky Ricardo (Desi Arnaz): Of course, I know what it is. It’s a little box and it has a dial and out of it comes music and football games and things.


Ricky Ricardo (Desi Arnaz): I’m gonna go back to Cuba, where the language makes sense.


Lucy Ricardo (Lucille Ball):I f I was a western snake, I’d bite you.
Ricky Ricardo (Desi Arnaz): I gotta go back to Cuba.


Ricky Ricardo (Desi Arnaz): Well, I’d like to hear Roy Rogers sing Babalu.


Rattlesnake Jones: Little lady, what are you aiming to do?
Lucy Ricardo (Lucille Ball): I’m aiming to do anything you aim at me.


Lucy Ricardo (Lucille Ball): [to Fred] I know just exactly the kind of show that your lodge brothers would like to see.
Ricky Ricardo (Desi Arnaz): So do I, but you can’t do that kind of a show.


Ethel Mertz (Vivian Vance): Lucy, you can’t yodel.
Fred Mertz (William Frawley): Well, to be technical, she can’t sing, either.


Ricky Ricardo (Desi Arnaz): How much do you want?
Lucy Ricardo (Lucille Ball): How much do you pay?
Ricky Ricardo (Desi Arnaz): How much do you want?
Lucy Ricardo (Lucille Ball): You go first.
