Episode Info

Because of a minor error on their wedding license, Lucy (Lucille Ball) is convinced that she is no longer legally married to Ricky (Desi Arnaz). Taking advantage of the situation, Lucy insists that Ricky court her all over again, and that he drop to his knees to propose marriage in the most archaic "love language" imaginable. The situation is played to the hilt, culminating in an elopement in the wilds of New England. When originally telecast in April 1952, this I Love Lucy episode was seen by more viewers than any other TV show in history (ten million!).
