THE LUCY SHOW EPISODE GUIDE
Lucy and Viv Open a Restaurant
Lucy talks Viv into dipping into her nest egg and investing in a small local restaurant that is for sale. Remodeling seems to have no effect on the success of the eatery. Unable to attract even a single customer, they fail miserably as a gypsy tea room and as a Colonial American themed restaurant. No matter how they redecorate the place, it is a total flop.
Finally, When Mr. Mooney learns a highway will be built nearby, he suddenly is interested and makes an offer to become a partner. Unfortunately, the blasting for the highway shakes the building and ruins any chance for a partnership.
Special Notes: This story resembles one from I Love Lucy, episode #68, "The Girls Go Into Business," where Lucy and Ethel buy a woman's dress shop that in turn becomes involved in a potentially much bigger real estate deal.
Bloopers: Viv says they started to live together six years ago but earlier in episode #42, "The Loophole in the Lease," Lucy said they had lived together for 5 years.
