One of the most famous of all I Love Lucy story arcs gets under way when a Hollywood talent scout (Frank Nelson) arrives at the Ricardo home to discuss a possible screen test for Ricky (Desi Arnaz). It seems that MGM is planning a musical version of "Don Juan," and Ricky would seem to be a natural choice for the role. Naturally, everyone wants to get into the act, and before long Fred (William Frawley) and Ethel (Vivian Vance) are parading around in Spanish costumes, Lucy (Lucille Ball) dolls herself up to look like Marilyn Monroe, and even old Mrs. Trumbull (Elizabeth Patterson) lifts her voice in song.
