In this first episode of The Lucy Show's sixth and final season, Lucy (Lucille Ball) has briefly parted company with boss Mooney (Gale Gordon) to work part-time as a secretary for comedian Milton Berle). At the same time, Berle is attempting to change his image and become a dramatic actor, and to this ends rehearses a passionate movie love scene with actress Ruta Lee). Overhearing this rehearsal, Lucy jumps to the wrong conclusion--and spends the rest of the episode trying to save the marriage between Uncle Miltie and his wife Ruth Cosgrove Berle. The closing "salad" gag is priceless--and so funny that a giggling Ruta Lee is unable to deliver her lines, forcing Lucy to briefly take over both parts!
