Figuring that their marriages are in a rut, the Ricardos and the Mertzes decide to take a week's "vacation" from matrimony. Thus, Lucy (Lucille Ball) and Ethel (Vivian Vance) move into the Mertz apartment, while Ricky (Desi Arnaz) and Fred (William Frawley) take up residence in the Ricardo domicile. It isn't long before the girls miss the boys terribly, and vice versa -- but neither "couple" is willing to admit to having made a mistake with the vacation idea. Things get really dicey when Lucy and Ethel decide to check on their hubbies by clambering onto the roof of the apartment building -- only to get locked out!
