Episode Info

Ricky (Desi Arnaz) and Fred (William Frawley) demand that Lucy (Lucille Ball) and Ethel (Vivian Vance) stop spreading gossip, but the girls insists that the boys are as gossipy as they are. Thus, a wager is established: whoever can abstain the longest from gossiping will be served breakfast in bed for a month. Determined to win the wager, Ricky and Fred indulge in some underhanded trickery, forcing Lucy and Ethel to foment a false rumor about Mr. and Mrs. Foster and their milkman. As a result, a smirking Ricky and Fred are seen lying in bed, with Lucy and Ethel waiting on them hand and foot -- but it isn't long before the tables will turn in a spectacular fashion.
