The burdens of motherhood have not dampened Lucy's desire to break into show business. Indeed, when Ricky (Desi Arnaz) announces that he is staging a new "Indian Show" at the Tropicana, Lucy (Lucille Ball) not only assumes that she will be the star of the proceedings, but also begins diligently researching the history of Native Americans (courtesy of pulp novels!). Alas, Ricky has no interest in hiring Lucy, though he does find roles for the Mertzes. Never one to give up after the first try, Lucy manages to insinuate herself into a lavish floor-show number, "Waters of the Minnetonka" -- and even figures out a way to care for Little Ricky at the same time.
