I LOVE LUCY EPISODE GUIDE
Lucy volunteers for Ricky's Parisian apache dance number for an upcoming Tropicana show. Fred offers to teach Lucy the finer points of the terpsichorean art until Ethel manages to produce the real thing, Jean Valjean Raymond, who is the nephew of the woman who runs the French hand laundry.
The Frenchman has more than dance lessons on his mind, and when Ricky finds him hiding in the hall closet, the fireworks commence. Jean challenges Ricky to a duel with pistols behind Radio City Music Hall, but they finally decide to stage a fake fight in the bedroom to teach Lucy a well-deserved lesson.
