With his budget tighter than usual thanks to the near-sighted "management" of his pal Fred (William Frawley), Ricky (Desi Arnaz) has little money left to do anything but perform with his band when the Ricardos and the Mertzes arrive in Monte Carlo. Naturally, this means that Ricky must forbid Lucy (Lucille Ball) to go anywhere near the resort's famous gambling casino, but this doesn't stop Lucy and Ethel (Vivian Vance) from "accidentally" wandering past the gaming tables while having dinner. Luck of luck, Lucy finds a chip that someone has dropped, unthinkingly places the chip on a roulette table, and wins 875,000 francs! But with group wealth comes great responsibilities -- namely, trying to hide the money from the suspicious Ricky. Alas, Lucy chooses to stuff the excess dough in Ethel's luggage...and when Ricky inadvertently stumbles upon it, he immediately assumes that Fred has become an embezzler.
