"Ethel's Big Secret" (Season Two, Episode 13 - 1953), Ethel drops by the Ricardo apartment to see if she can borrow some "butter and egg money" from Lucy to pay for a "procedure."
(That was the word CBS & Philip Morris told Desilu they had to use.)
Lucy: "Ethel! You just had a procedure last month!"
Given an address scrawled inside the back cover of a May 1936 issue of ‘Reader’s Digest’ by Mrs Trumbull, the girls take the IRT downtown to a semi-abandoned warehouse on a Garment District side street.
There they meet officious abortionist Gale Gordon and Mary Wickes as his wisecracking nurse. Things nearly go awry when Lucy knocks the tray of sterile instruments all over the floor.
Later, back on East 69th Street Lucy helps a weakened Ethel into her apartment.
They are surprised by Fred - he was supposed to be out at a Giants game with his former 'Mertz and Kurtz' vaudeville partner Barney Kurtz.
Lucy attempts to use her chic new hat to hide the hot water bottle Ethel has pressed against her abdomen, but it is too small and Fred sees it.
Fred: “Oh, for corn's sake, Ethel -- another procedure?"
Ethel: "Like you didn't have something to do with it, Casanova Mertz!"
Lucy: “Honestly... Ethel’s had more children pulled out of her than a burning orphanage.”
Ethel: "And now I can’t afford that new toaster you penny-pinching Old Goat!”

Smoking is the best part of I Love Lucy. I was born 30 years after it was made. Lucy was occasionally very funny with physical comedy, but the show is dumb and dated and the famous comic timing is way off from anything contemporary. That is not true of all old sitcoms.
This thread had about 5 funny, dirty or unexpected scenario posts. Obviously all from elder elder gays who populate this dive. The rest is just stupid. Saying Lucy and Ethel scissor or someone runs a train on Lucy are already antiquated phrases. From someone who was at least 35 years old - 40 years ago. Ha, That golden gay humor. There's a word for this. Trying too hard. Be witty elder gays. Isn't that what you claim on this site?

True trivia: In real life, Lucy's grandfather was a member of the American Communist Party. When she was a young aspiring actress/model in New York, she attended a few party meetings to please him.
Word got to McCarthy about it (I think Walter Winchell printed a blind, but not sure) and she was about to be summoned before HUAC to defend herself. CBS and others interceded and got Lucy and Desi a private meeting with McCarthy. They cajoled, wheedled, pleaded, flattered and apologized and eventually convinced the evil Senator of Lucy's patriotism and a young girl's innocent mistake. But she almost got branded a Commie during the McCarthy years when the show was at its peak.
