Season Five of The Lucy Show begins, typically enough, with a guest star--in this instance the ageless George Burns. While doing business with banker Mooney (Gale Gordon), Burns confides that he is working up a new nightclub act: All he needs is a "kooky" female partner. Enter Mooney's secretary Lucy (Lucille Ball), who proceeds to amaze Burns with a convoluted explanation of her unique filing system. Duly impressed, Burns invites Lucy to join him on stage--and what follows is not only a fond recreation of the old "Burns and Allen" days (with Lucy, of course, as Gracie), but also a song-and-dance duet to the tune of the old Sophie Tucker standard "Some of These Days."
