When Ricky (Desi Arnaz) insists that he hasn't the money for a Hawaiian vacation, Lucy endeavors to win a free trip by submitting the story of her "miserable" life to a Strike It Rich-style game show called "Be a Good Neighbor." She even goes so far as to claim that she doesn't want the vacation for herself, but for the "impoverished" Mertzes and their elderly, grey-haired mother (actually Lucy in disguise). Figuring out what Lucy is up to, the show's prankish host Freddie Fillmore (Frank Nelson) conspires with Ricky to teach our heroine a lesson by subjecting her to all manner of on-camera pranks and practical jokes, leaving her soaking wet and splattered with eggs and pastry.
