Thanks to the somewhat inadequate managerial skills of Fred Mertz (William Frawley), the Ricardos and the Mertzes are booked into a fourth-class Florence hotel during the Italian leg of Ricky's European musical tour. This means that Lucy (Lucille Ball) is unable to make telephone contact with Little Ricky back in the states on the occasion of the boy's birthday. Possessed with homesickness, Lucy "adopts" an Italian shoeshine boy named Giuseppe (Bart Bradley), who claims that it is his birthday as well -- and who turns out to be a first-class con artist.
