Pregnant Women Are Unpredictable - S2-E16

Trivia: When Lucy's reading the book about infant care, she's holding a baby doll wearing a bonnet in order to learn how to bathe and diaper a baby, and the doll she's using is not just any prop. It's actually one of the show's endorsed products named the "I Love Lucy Baby" doll, which were sold in stores.

Lucy Hires a Maid - S2-E23

Trivia: Right after hiring the maid, when Lucy's sitting on the couch she's reading Companion magazine, and on the cover of this issue there's a small inset photo of Lucy, Desi, and Desi Jr. This magazine is seen again in "Lucy Wants New Furniture" when she has dinner set up in the living room, and is waiting for Ricky to walk in.

Ricky Has Labor Pains - S2-E19

Trivia: When Ricky tells Lucy to sit down and rest before the "surprise" baby shower, Lucy opens a McCall's magazine and on the cover it reads "I Love Lucy" though the cover has been altered a bit. This issue of McCall's is from January 1953, and the cover actually reads "Why I Love Lucy, by Desi Arnaz", which includes the article that was written by Desi. (00:05:15)

Ricky Has Labor Pains - S2-E19

Trivia: After Lucy's baby shower, one of the gifts she received is a baby doll in a box lying on the couch, that Ricky picks up and smiles at.

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)
