Despite her impending motherhood, Lucy (Lucille Ball) is determined to participate in the "Gay Nineties Revue" being staged by Ricky (Desi Arnaz). The highlight of the revue is to be a barbershop quartet, consisting of Ricky, Ethel (Vivian Vance), Fred (William Frawley) -- and some guy named George Watson. Despite her questionable (to say the least) singing skills, Lucy manages to wangle a spot in the quartet, with uproarious results. Also appearing in this episode is Pepito the Clown (aka Pepito PĂ©rez), who had guest-starred in the original I Love Lucy pilot film back in 1950, and had staged many of the comedy routines in Lucille Ball and Desi Arnaz' pre-TV comedy act.
