In preparation for a dramatic movie role, comedian Milton Berle shows up at a skid-row soup kitchen disguised as an alcoholic bum. (He's got tea in his wine bottle, explaining "I'm not a wino -- I'm a tea-o." Barrump-bump!) Doing volunteer work at the soup kitchen, Lucy (Lucille Ball) spots Berle and is convinced that he's a genuine derelict. To throw her off the track, the comedian explains that he's really "Arthur Berle," the down-and-out twin brother of Milton Berle. Swallowing the story whole, Lucy takes "Arthur" home in hopes of rehabilitating the poor man. To quote Mr. Berle, "I'w kiww you a miwwion times" if you give away the ending of this episode.
