Now that the Ricardos are living in a new apartment, Lucy (Lucille Ball) figures that it's time to replace the old living room furniture. Without the permission or knowledge of husband Ricky (Desi Arnaz), Lucy purchases a new sofa and coffee table, using the old furniture as down payment for the 299-dollar price tag. The trick now is to prevent Ricky from finding out about the transaction until Lucy can figure out the "right time" to tell him -- and the way things are going, the "right time" may well be 1963! Somehow or other, this situation segues into an even funnier one, wherein Lucy tries to curb her financial "'stravagances" by making her own dress and giving herself a home permanent.
