Home Movies - S3-E19

Plot hole: Toward the end of the episode, when the spliced-together movie is shown, there are several scenes from the movie Lucy, Fred and Ethel shot, often showing all three of them on screen at the same time. The problem is that no one else was there with them, yet the camera follows them as they move around the room. Who was running their camera?

Lucy Visits Grauman's - S5-E1

Plot hole: A block of cement that big would be very heavy, far too heavy for Lucy and Ethel to carry, not to mention someone would have noticed them carrying back to their hotel room.

Drafted - S1-E9

Plot hole: Both couples have the same group of friends and they were all invited to both going away parties planned on the same night at the same location. Isn't it likely that at least one of the main characters would have found out about the other party? But at the end, all seem surprised about the other party that was planned for them.

Pioneer Women - S1-E25

Plot hole: Lucy mentions if Ricky comes home by bus, cab, or subway then they win the bet. Problem is unless they live next to a subway she wouldn't know if he'd used it.

Lucy Cries Wolf - S4-E1

Plot hole: How does Lucy get back up to the apartment bound and gagged? It would seem impossible to hop up all those steps, possibly take several hours if not all night.

Lucy Gets Ricky on the Radio - S1-E32

Visible crew/equipment: At the start, after Fred and Ethel walk in, when Lucy and Ethel walk away from the kitchen shutters carrying things, the stage microphone and stand can be seen at the right side of the screen. (Later in the episode, when Lucy and Ricky appear on The Quiz Show an identical microphone is on stage with them). (00:00:35)

Ricky Ricardo: Fred, how often is Ethel's checking account overdrawn?
Fred Mertz: Never.
Ricky Ricardo: Never? How do you manage that?
Ethel Mertz: It's easy. I never had enough money at one time to open a checking account.
Fred Mertz: She spends money like I'm printing it in the basement.

Lucy Wants New Furniture - S2-E28

Question: Lucy buys a 3 piece sofa set. One piece is an armless sofa chair. It is seen in the next episode but is never seen again. Where did it go?

Chosen answer: It's not known. She may have moved it to the spare room or it may be in a corner just off camera. There could be any number of reasons, though it probably took up too much room on the studio set, and it was removed, making it easier for the actors to move around.
