Synopsis by Hal Erickson
Gale Gordon makes his first series appearance as Theodore J. Mooney, the new banker in charge of Lucy's trust fund. Hoping to get on Mooney's good side, Lucy (Lucille Ball) inadvertently botches her chances when she subjects the banker's son Arnold (Barry Livingston) to a bad haircut. Rushing to the bank to beg Mooney's forgiveness, Lucy succeeds only in locking herself and the bombastic banker in the vault for eighteen hours! This was originally telecast as the first episode of a two-part story.
