I Love Lucy

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.

The Séance - S1-E7

Continuity mistake: After Lucy tells Mr. Merriweather that he's invited to the seance, when it cuts to Lucy unfolding the card table legs, note the couch behind her with one normal seat cushion on the left, but in the next wideshot there's an additional shorter cushion under the normal cushion. The small towel also repositions itself neatly on the couch. (00:11:55)

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.

Question: Why would Ethel think Fred's enlisted? He wouldn't be allowed in due to his age right? I know the plot yet this thinking makes no sense.

Answer: There is no reason. It's a just a silly plot device, typical of the era. Women characters were often portrayed as making uninformed assumptions or decisions.
