April 13, 1959

Lucy is exasperated. Once again tired of her daily routine, she wants to give show business another try. Ricky agrees, and Lucy auditions as a ""Girl Friday"" for a morning news show anchored by Paul Davis. At the audition, Lucy suddenly realizes her age, and does a little fancy maneuvering for notice. All but giving up hope, she is startled to get the job.

Her first appearance is a disaster, but the viewers find it very humorous, and Lucy ends up with a long-term contract. Ultimately, Lucy misses Little Ricky and being a homemaker, and decides, after all these years, that show business really isn't for her after all. Lucy decides to quit, and goes home for some rest. With her sleeping schedule off kilter, Lucy downs a couple of sleeping tablets. A groggy Lucy is awoken by Ricky. They'll be sued if she doesn't honor her contract, and a heavily medicated Lucy is rushed to the studio.
