Episode Watch Party S01 E26: “The Marriage License”

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

This Week’s Episode:

“The Marriage License”

Original Air Date:

April 7, 1952

This Week’s WTFacts:

  • I absolutely love the Willoughby couple at the inn. They are some of my favorites from the whole show. And they’ll be back! As Ethel’s father, and as neighbor/babysitter Mrs. Trumbull. 
  • Lucy and Desi after weddingRicky’s name on the license reads “Bicardi.” And in fact, Desi’s grandfather was one of the founders of Bacardi rum. 
  • This was the first TV episode ever to be viewed by 10 million people. 
  • Lucy and Ricky go back to the Byram River Beagle Club in Greenwich, CT. That’s where Lucy and Desi actually got married by a justice of the peace and, just like on the show, they married twice.

See you Friday!
