Ever on the lookout for some quick and easy money, Lucy (Lucille Ball) becomes a contestant on the popular radio quiz show "Females Are Fabulous" (a spoof of Art Linkletter's People Are Funny). Host Freddie Fillmore (Frank Nelson in the first of many I Love Lucy appearances) offers to pay Lucy 1,000 dollars if she can convince Ricky (Desi Arnaz) that she was married before him, with the help of paid actor who will show up at the Ricardo doorstep claiming to be Lucy's "long-lost first husband." Predictably, Lucy mistakes a hobo (John Emery) for her phony hubby, and confusion reigns supreme.
