I LOVE LUCY EPISODE GUIDE
The Charm School
The Ricardos are playing host to the Mertzes and Bill and Lou Ann Hall, when suddenly another friend, Tom Williams, brings his knockout date, Eve Whitney.
A honey, the boys swarm around her, making fools of themselves - much to Lucy and Ethel's disgust. Lucy: "What's Eve Whitney got that we haven't got? Nothing! We've got just as much as she's got, only lots more!" Ethel: "Yeah, but all the 'lots more' is in all the wrong places."
They decide to take advantage of an offer for a free analysis at Phoebe Emerson's Charm School. Phoebe tests Lucy and Ethel who wind up with respective scores of 32 and 30 (out of a possible 100 points). The "uncharming" pair sign up for a full course.
Soon Lucy dons a sexy, black sequined gown to surprise Ricky. Even Ethel, wearing a tight-fitting, leopard-design dress, looks great, causing Ricky to ask "Who's that?" Fred: "Who's that? What's that?"
The girls demand a night out, and the boys hurriedly dress in outlandish garb (Ricky as a cavalier, Fred looking like Mr. Peanut) to show how "ridiculous" they look. They decide to go back to the way they were before: "four natural, lovable slobs."
Special Notes: Natalie Schafer, who played the charm school operator Phoebe Emerson, later went on to play Lovey Howell on Gilligan's Island.
