Synopsis by Hal Erickson
Chris (Candy Moore) demands that her mom Lucy (Lucille Ball) not interfere with her planned New Year's Eve Party. Reluctantly but obligingly, Lucy vacates her living room and goes out on a double date with Viv (Vivian Vance), Harry (Dick Martin) and Eddie (Don Briggs). Before long, however, Lucy receives an urgent call from home--Chris's party is dying, and some instant entertainment is sorely required. The highlight of this episode is an elaborate silent-movie spoof featuring Lucille Ball's astonishingly accurate impersonation of Charlie Chaplin (whom teenager Chris describes as "The Soupy Sales of the Stone Age").
