When Ricky (Desi Arnaz) decides to get out of show business and into another line of work, Lucy (Lucille Ball) and the Mertzes (Vivian Vance, William Frawley) go along with the plan. The two couples invest heavily in a local diner called "Bill's Place," which the owner, Mr. Wilson (James Burke), has assured them is a gold mine. Suffice to say that not only is the diner a bottomless money pit, but the Ricardos and the Mertzes are run ragged trying to handle all the work themselves -- and worse still, an argument results in the couples splitting the diner down the middle into two equally unprofitable eateries.
