Episode Info

Ricky (Desi Arnaz) finds an unusually large amount of money in Lucy's purse, and also stumbles upon a closetful of silverware and other unfamiliar-looking valuables. Not knowing that Lucy (Lucille Ball) is merely collecting items for a charity bazaar, Ricky jumps to the conclusion that his wife is a kleptomaniac. A psychiatrist, Dr. Tom Robinson (Joseph Kearns) is brought in by Ricky to hypnotize Lucy in order to "cure" her of her ailment -- but Lucy, aware of what Ricky is up to, decides to teach her husband a lesson...and what a lesson.
