Synopsis

Lucy (Lucille Ball) develops an inferiority complex when she can't get anyone to laugh at her jokes -- in fact, the harder she tries to be funny, the worse things get. Plunging into a deep blue funk, Lucy becomes incapable of performing even the simplest task, whereupon she tearfully decides to remain in bed for the rest of her life. Hoping to snap his wife out of her doldrums, Ricky (Desi Arnaz) hires a "physio-chiatrist" named Dr. Molin (Gerald Mohr), who prescribes a few doses of flattery to cheer Lucy up. Unfortunately, Molin's treatment also includes an elaborate charade in which he poses as a handsome bachelor intent upon wooing Lucy away from Ricky.
