Synopsis by Hal Erickson
Michael J. Pollard, best known to film buffs as the moronic "C.W. Moss" in Bonnie and Clyde, makes his one-and-only Lucy Show appearance as Ted Mooney, son of banker Theodore J. Mooney (Gale Gordon). Ted is going steady with Lucy's daughter Chris (Candy Moore) a situation that neither Lucy (Lucille Ball) nor Mr. Mooney (Gale Gordon approves of. To break up the young couple, Lucy applies reverse psychology, suggesting that Chris and Ted should get married. To teach her mom a lesson, Chris pretends to elope with Ted--and somehow this situation climaxes with Lucy and Mooney literally up a tree!
