Episode Watch Party S01 E22: “Fred and Ethel Fight”

Satirical commentary of I Love Lucy every Friday! Here’s all the WTFacts for this week. 

Philip Morris in I Love LucyThis Week’s Episode:

“Fred and Ethel Fight”

Original Air Date:

March 3, 1952

This Week’s WTFacts:

  • This episode is based on a true story. Lucy and Desi had friends over and ended up in a huge fight about an old argument they’d had. You know it’s never a good thing when your actual life is the inspiration for an I Love Lucy episode.
  • At one point in this episode, Ethel goes home to her mother. In Season 4, we learn that Ethel’s father is a widower. If Ethel’s shitty life ever got a spinoff, it’d be sadder than The Killing.
  • Be on the lookout for the most obvious product placement ever (see photo). At the drugstore. Sigh.

See you Friday!
